Hello everyone; I hope you're doing ok!
I played the guitar a lot when I was younger, and had a starter guitar which served me well, but I'm looking for something nicer to pick up now that I'm a bit older.
With the ones I'm looking at, I'm sure they'll all be much better than my starter guitar, but if anyone has any insight/experience to help me clarify and choose it would be much appreciated, especially as we're in lock down I can't go and try them!
I have found reasonable deals on the following Martin Guitars:
OMCPA4 - US List $1,899.00, found for £1549 (New, Old Stock)
GPC-16E Mahogany - US List $1,649.00, found for £1699 (Brand New)
DC-16E Natural - US List $2,399.00, found for £1549 (Lightly Used)
As far as I can tell they're all quite similar guitars, with the primary differences being that OMCPA4 has Fishman Matrix VT Enhance NT1 instead of NT2, and has a built-in tuner too, otherwise there might be slight differences in size, but I doubt I could tell the difference in tone.
What do you think - any recommendations? Also, if you have any other suggestions I'd be interested to hear them! I like the look/sound of the mid-range Martins a bit more than the Taylors (which sound a bit too bright to me in the YouTube vids).
