Why not spread the cost?

This sensational instrument is a true testament to the very best of Martins Nazareth based Custom Shop, and a real privilege to have on display here at our UK Showroom.
Built in a gorgeous, super straight grained Madagascar Rosewood for the back and sides paired with a stunning Adirondack Spruce top which has been treated with Martin's Vintage Tone System and sanded to .105" for unparalleled response, this decorative and captivating Dreadnought is a real showstopper.
The Select Mahogany neck has a custom tapered Low Oval profile that provides an exceptionally comfortable playing experience across the board, and with a beautifully inlaid Black Ebony board providing the platform for a diverse range of playing styles it's a very difficult guitar to put down. 
The all Hide Glue construction, in tandem with traditional build methods and staggering luthierie makes for a supremely resonant and lively instrument, with all the tonal response and character one would be only right to expect from a Martin Dreadnought of this prestige. 
The guitar is in immaculate condition and comes in it's original Hardcase.
