^^^ This. ^^^

Oh...and no one makes a better Martin than Martin.

If you're talking about consistency, you won't find that from a boutique builder that makes every guitar by hand. There would be too much variability - but that's what also makes them special.

Martin dreads are the standard. Keep looking until you find the one that speaks to you.
