At a shopping complex the other day, I couldn't help noticing several teenage boys streaming out of a Yamaha music centre carrying guitars, each in its own guitar case. They must have just completed their guitar lesson for the day.
One forum participant said the reason Martin specs the phosphor bronze is because they are the top-shelf acoustic string in their line up. Plus, they have a more mellow tone, and when plugged in, the sound is warmer. He tipped that all Martins are made in the USA and definitely worth the money. He would recommend Martin acoustic guitars to anyone, especially smaller-framed individuals though he at 6'3"/255lbs it's already become his favorite stage guitar after being on the road for more than 20 years.
This Martin 000CXE is another favourite of yet another forum participant. He likes its black, dull color for its clean look and not having a shiny finish, it doesn't have to be wiped down daily. It has such a rich tone and the playability is great! That's guitar-talk for you. He would strongly recommend buying it and he will soon, he added.
And that's the Martin 000CXE acoustic guitar..
