2008 Martin DX-175th #1308060
New-old-stock from the inventory of the now closed Vintage Fret Shop in Ashland, NH...the guitar came into the shop in 2008 and has basically been a display piece there rather than for sale ever since...elaborate mural-like soundboard graphic represents the evolution of the CF Martin Company from 1833 through 2008, though the images on the face are primarily of antiquity and include the well known portrait of CF Martin Sr. The top, back and sides are HPL (high pressure laminate) with morado fret board and bridge. The stratobond neck is joined to the body with Martin's mortise & tenon bolt-on joint. The guitar is set up to play comfortably for finger style or flat picking and plays easily and cleanly all over the neck. Comes with a new Martin 300 series hard shell case. Ships to US only, NY residents add 8% sales tax.
