THis is a hand-crafted gem-like instrument. VIsially it seems less ostentatious andmore elegant than the Martin. It has subtle touches like MoP inlays on the key frets on the edges, and purling, but, instead of a big maker's mark on the headstock, there is a delicate in lay of blue stone with three gold circles in it. Subtle.
Acoustically her voice is brighter, stronger in the upper end, and clearer when played softly than is the Martin.
I am not giving the Martin up by any means. But this Apollo is something special. I am still learning to play her.
