For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 1991 Martin D-16H..
These have many pre-war features, such as scalloped bracing, and the wider x-bracing with the intersection 1" from the sound hole. These early ones (1988-1993) have a true dovetail neck joint, and the traditional x-brace. (In the later D16s, they use a bolted neck joint, and the hybrid "A" frame bracing.) Rosewood peghead overlay, old style stencil logo, cloth x-brace intersection reinforcement, rosewood bridge and fingerboard, Slimline neck profile, Factory Ebony tuner buttons have been exchanged to pearl buttons, simple dot position markers, one piece neck, herringbone rosette and backstrip, and tortoise shell binding. 1 11/16" nut, and truss rod to adjust neck relief.
These, are one of the better kept secrets out there. They were experimental models, used at guitar shows to demonstrate and test the market for reintroduction of several prewar features. These were the closest thing to a pre-war D18 available at the time, and except for the slimline neck, are very similar to a D18V, but with a little better selection of woods.
