After days of sifting through the various eBay listings and possible candidates, I ended up buying a brand new Martin OMCPA4 acoustic electric guitar. I picked this one primarily because I wanted to finally have an all-solid acoustic guitar and ofcourse stay within the brand that my guitar heroes use. Another important aspect of this guitar that helped decide was its “OM” body, the body of the guitar is smaller than my older Martin which makes it more convenient to carry around and to play. One thing I forgot to consider was to buy a guitar stand from musicians friend. Hopefully I can still get one in time.
