Confirmed to have a MAP of $1499. Still in my opnion too much for a foreign built Martin Road Series instrument. Also I have mixed feelings about Martin building their innovative new products outside the USA. Perhaps that is the right choice for this model

Is being able to play all the way up the neck really going to revolutionize acoustic guitar performance playing the way Martin is touting? I've never really felt this was a major hindrance on my typical cutaway. I really don't see this model as such a game changer as their videos are claiming.

IMO all Martins are comfy near the nut, but this new SC-13E plays easier than traditional Marins on the middle frets too, not just frets 13 & up.

To me it seems like a very good concept.
I think you're right, and I think they'll sell boat loads of them.
