Product Reviews for C.F. Martin Acoustic Marquis Folk Guitar Silk & Steel Compound Wound, .0115 - .047, M-1400

C.F. Martin Acoustic Marquis Folk Guitar Silk & Steel Compound Wound, .0115 - .047, M-14005MarkAugust 25, 2011My 1930 vintage 2-17 Martin guitar is lightly built, and steel lower strings greatly overpower the trebles. I was concerned that the lesser string tension of the silk and steels would yield an unresponsive 2-17 considering its short scale, but in fact the sound is balanced and gorgeous. Great fingerstyle strings, also good for light strumming.
