I purchased an M-32 from Shoreline Music in Sept., 2003. It has always been a versatile, playable guitar. In recent years the sound has opened up more, making the tone even better. More recently I installed a Baggs Lyric, also from Shoreline, which to my ears has proven to be a good fit for this guitar. It responds well to finger style playing, which I do the majority of the time; but also works well with flat picking and strumming, therefore a good all-around guitar. The one minor thing about this guitar which prevented me from giving it 5 stars, is the intonation of the B string. It seems to need frequent re-tuning, depending on what key in which it's being played. The rosewood back and sides, coupled with the AAA European Spruce top produces a nice, deep resonant tone that one would expect from rosewood. The overall craftsmanship of this guitar is excellent. I highly recommend it, particularly if you're wanting one good versatile guitar.
