Martin Custom Shop Winter Live Free Or Die Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Cocobolo (USED)
Available for sale is our exclusive Martin custom shop "winter themed" D-28 12-Fret acoustic guitar!
A few years ago, the owner of Manchester Music Mill went down to the Martin factory in Nazareth, PA making designs for our exclusive Martin custom shop models. After sitting with the custom shop crew for a day we came up with the designs of two custom shop guitars combining classic Martin designs and typical New Hampshire elements to express our love and appreciation to the state and the support from all the customers. The two dreadnoughts were specially crafted for Manchester Music Mill with handpicked top-shelf tonewood and a range of ornate abalone adornments, also with time-honored Martin building techniques, making them great value instruments perfect for your collection!
This "winter" themed drednought was based on the vintage pre-war D28, boasting a beautiful sunburst finish over a premium VTS (vintage tone system) torrifed sitka spruce top, a pair of stunning book-matched cocobolo back and sides, sitka non-scalloped 5/16'' bracing, abalone snow flake fingerboard and bridge inlays which represent the beautiful snow landscape of New Hampshire, cocobolo headstock overlay, European flamed maple top binding, also with the abalone state motto inlay next to the fingerboard joint.
This guitar is used and show's some signs of wear. There is a hairline finish crack underneath the LFOD inlay an it recently had a professional neck reset in-house by The Music Techs.
Playwear is minimal. See pics for full cosmetic details.
Serialized 2126169. Includes original Martin hardshell case, COA and accessories. Full spec sheet is available.
