Martin Custom Shop D Style 14 Fret Acoustic with Alternate Torch Inspired inlays and Wild-Grain Rosewood back and sides (Wood Set #53)


AVAILABLE FOR CUSTOM ORDER - This past March, we traveled to The Martin Factory in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, to custom order this special Martin Custom Shop D Style 14 Fret acoustic with Alternate torch inspired inlays, at the Martin Custom Shop. We worked directly with the top talent in the Martin Custom Shop to bring this special guitar to life. We spent hours, upon hours in the Martin Wood Room looking for the finest, most beautiful, Wild-Grain East Indian Rosewood, with exotic figuring that is beyond rare! We were able to choose from the finest, highest grade wood sets of Martin's entire rosewood stock!

This guitar not only looks stunning with the beautiful Wild Grain Rosewood back, but also has a deep, crisp and full sound, thanks to an Adirondack Spruce top, and scalloped X bracing. This guitar also features other deluxe appointments like: Herringbone Inlay on the body, Alternate Torch Inspired inlays, and open back Schaller Gold Grand Tune tuning machines! Play this guitar, and you'll know what it means to own Martin's best.

You are looking at a one of a kind guitar, its serial number is: 2298003, using Wild-Grain East-Indian Rosewood Set #53.
