1103040075...The DMSM Dave Matthews model is based on the 914 CE but with signature features unique to this limited model, most folks looking for this guitar likely already know what these are. The guitar has solid Indian rosewood back and sides, solid spruce top, solid mahogany neck with ebony fret board and bridge. The body and fret board are bound in white and the top and rosette dressed in abalone. The bridge, fret board and headstock also bear abalone inlays, some of which were designed by Matthews in memory of a deceased band member. It has the onboard Expressions system pickup. The guitar is in near mint condition. I can find only two very light finish dings in the top, so superficial that the light has to hit the top just right for them to be visible, and they could probably be made to disappear with a little light wet sand a buff. There are no other marks on the guitar at all. It has no repairs and needs nothing. The only sign of any wear at all is on the frets in the first position, where there is some very minor wear on the first 5 frets, primarily under the B string. This wear is not deeply pitted and not enough to impact the playability or intonation. The action is set very low for fast finger style play, the action measures 5/64" at the low E 12th fret and 4/64" at the high E with the truss rod adjusted to produce a very flat neck. The guitar plays with no buzz and excellent intonation, but for anyone wishing to flat pick the guitar or play with a heavy attack the action would need to be raised. Super fast neck feel, super easy playability. The guitar has a big voice with excellent clarity and articulation. The guitar comes with its original hard case and all original paper work including the certificate of authenticity. Many more photos available on request. $3750
