Price : US $1,625
This is a Martin D16BH Signature Model acoustic / electric guitar in pristine condition.
It is #20 from a limited production of 99 made (Serial # 841111). List price was $2,950.
It was originally purchased by a collector and hardly played at all. It is truly in basically new condition with no fretwear. While true to Martinís traditional Dreadnought shape, the D-16BH features a shallow, approximately 000-depth body. The thinner body combines powerful Martin Dreadnought tone with distinctive balance and clarity. In addition to being an exceptional guitar for recording, the D-16BH offers playing comfort to guitarists for whom a standard Dreadnought is simply too deep. The D-16BH shows Beckís appreciation for a true working musicianís instrument, with the emphasis on tone, playability and understated decoration. The top is premium solid bookmatched Sitka spruce, selected for strong, full tone. Back and sides of solid East Indian Rosewood add depth and projection. Comfortable for a variety of playing styles, the modified low oval neck is crafted from Spanish cedar. Martinís hybrid A-frame scalloped X-bracing and patented mortise and tenon neck joint provide an ideal blend of stability and responsiveness. Top, back and side edges combine black/white purfling '' three layers on the top, and one layer on the back and sides '' with tortoise colored binding for subtle elegance. In contrast, both the Style 45 abalone pearl inlaid rosette and Style 45 multi-colored mosaic back.
