Default NGD! Martin Jr

I hate buying online, but I couldnít resist the price for this new Martin. Just received it today and itís perfect, great action so no setup required. Hopefully we are slow today at the fire station and I can play all day.

Nice! That looks like a fun little guitar that will be awesome to have laying around the fire station. Congrats!

Ya done good!

I looked at the Martin website and it looks like the all sapelle Djr is no longer available.

Enjoy your classic!

Congrats! Thatís a great guitar to own and its tone is awesome too!

I own the Dr Jr. 2 also and really like it. Sapele is an under-rated tone wood.

Have fun playing your guitar!

Good choice, sir.

Yours is identical to mine, and I adore it.

May your day at the station be slow, with ample time to get acquainted with it!

Thanks for all the responses, I had plenty of time yesterday to get familiar with my new guitar. I absolutely love it. Not as small as my Mini, but not a full size dread either. The sound is spot on, especially the lows. I was worried about the larger nut because Iím use to 1 11/16 nuts, but I think I like it better. If I had to choose between the two right now I think I would keep the Martin. But I donít have to so Iíll keep them both.
