    Anyone who is curious about the hog 12 fret, you will have to play and hear one for yourself.

    The playability and sound are stunning.
    If the neighbors complain because the music is too loud, turn it up so you can't hear them bitch..... 89 YJM Strat Modified, Martin D-41, 87 Fender P-bass, 97 Ash Strat, 2007 57 Reissue strat, Warmoth fretless P-Bass, and all kinds of cool gimmicks to make it sound like I know how to play.

    Come on. You need to use tonewords. None of this "try one for yourself" stuff. Describe the experience!

      Slick as a whistle? Woody yet urban? Warm yet moist?

        I had no idea this 12 fret 000 hog would sound like this. No idea at all. I'll think about what to say as I play it more.....

            No one "needs" a high end Martin...

            just like no one "needs" a lot of money...

              Money is like gas. You just need enough so that you never run out.

              Guitars are like food. You just need enough until you don't have room for any more.

                        If "High End" means lots of inlay, binding, gloss and other embellishments, and looking like every other Martin out there, count me out.

                        I'm seeking tone, projection, response, playability and general Mojo. THAT's where Martin's put their energy on this one, and it's an absolute Home Run.
