Dead Mint Condition
I liked this one so much I overpaid for it a bit. It's in mint condition AND has a Baggs Anthem system on board. For those who don't know the M series story (the M was was briefly designated as 0000) Martin designed the M body style after people started converting old Brazilian Rosewood Martin F series archtops to flattops because, well there aren't many people who wanted to play a Martin archtop and you could turn it into a great sounding Brazilian flattop. The F style conversions yielded a 16" body that was thinner than a traditional flattop and that's what the M series is. The M body yields a somewhat bigger yet more focused sound with nice punch to it and is more comfortable for many people because of the smaller depth.
The Anthem system is a revolutionary microphone engineered to capture a dynamic studio-mic’d sound for any live performance. The TRU•MIC mounts to the underside of the bridge plate and hovers just 3 mm above its surface to take advantage of the PZM or “boundary” effect. This proprietary mounting system, combined with noise cancellation, frees the mic to perform as if it were outside of the guitar in a studio and maintain remarkable feedback suppression for the stage. The result is a balanced frequency response with excellent clarity for the purest sound you have ever heard amplified. The Element pickup is paired with the TRU•MIC to provide solidity and punch for low frequencies.
As a stage guitar you can't do any better than this!
