This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2009-01-31)
Price : US $2,500.
I have to move overseas for awhile, so this beauty must find a home. This model is a Santa Barbara production. Kenny has lived, gigged and taught here for years, the guitar was designed here with the help of a local luthier, and I purchased it at the local Martin dealer. I've studied with Kenny off and on over the years so this guitar has been up to his studio and he has played a few tunes on it. It is #30 so it was part of the first batch that was released at the start of 2007. The guitar has an adirondack spruce top and fiddleback mahogany with Waverly tuners. The soundhole is surrounded by mother of pearl herringbone, and the Martin logo is also mother of pearl. Just a touch of bling on a classic design. Short scale 1 and 3/4 inch neck.
There are a few minor things that keep it from being mint...it has been played. There are light pick scratches on the pickgaurd which extend a few inches past and could easily be buffed out. There is a little forearm haze and some tiny button scratches there if you look real hard. All superficial and buffable. In other words it is a very clean guitar. The back and sides have a very stunning fiddleback pattern...some of the nicest I've seen on this model. The Geib case is included.
This is a spectacular guitar and the winner will be well pleased. Paypal only. Payment must be received within 5 days of auction close. Shipping is $30 to lower 48. Questions welcome.
