I don't LIKE acoustic guitars - I LOVE them! The new Martin Road Series models are awesome! I recently purchased the GPCRSGT (2015 Summer NAMM Best of Show), after seeing the reviews, hearing the demos, and playing one at the local GC. I loved it so much that I just treated myself to the Road Series Custom DCRSGT model. I love that one, too. The Road Series models are travel-sized, and have simple Fishman electronics, but they feature solid wood sound board, sides and back - and the fretboards are plek'ed!
