This guitar is one heck of a beauty.
Features special appointments such as elaborate inlays on back and headstock, wood bindings with abalone all over, VTS treatment on the spruce top, and wooden tuning keys.
Top is sitka spruce and b/s are rosewood. It’s a pure beauty. Well worth the asking price.
Guitarbear would love to see nice features like the wood binding on more Martins, but at more attainable prices. 🙂
Retails at US$8999 at time of this blog post. Here’s a video by Musician’s Friend.
