New old stock from the inventory of the now closed Vintage Fret Shop of Ashland, NH...Superb new solid sapele and solid spruce dreadnought with full gloss finish. This guitar is similar to the venerable D-18 but with a few cosmetic upgrades including gold finish tuners, a tortoise center ring to the rosette, tortoise head veneer (quite dark but it is indeed tortoise), tortoise dot bridge pins and a multi-color marquetry back strip like those found on style 40, 42 and 45 guitars. 1 3/4" nut width, the neck has Martin's modified 'low oval' profile and 'high performance' taper. Guitar projects very well, surprisingly loud and rowdy, thanks most likely to the forward shifted/scalloped X bracing and high quality Sitka. Really nice! Comes with padded nylon gig bag. Ships to US only, NYS buyers add 8% sales tax.
