Who better to recapture the essence and magic of pre-war Martins than Martin themselves? With their limited run of Golden Era instruments, crafted in the early 2000s, they revisited the build techniques, tone and look of the guitars that put them on the map in the early 20th century. Old-growth Brazilian rosewood is paired with red (Adirondack) spruce, and combined with pre-war specs like scalloped forward-shifted X-bracing. The powerful bass, crackling trebles, and full tone are pure pre-war inspired, but married with all the benefits of a modern-made guitar.
This one is number 465 of 600, finished in 2003, but you might be hard pressed to believe this guitar is already almost 20 years old - it's in excellent condition, aside from a little fret wear, and comes with a TKL hard case.
