This is my Martin MTV1 limited edition guitar. It was created in 1996 for the unplugged mtv series which featured several famous bands. Needless to say, they used fabulous grades of wood. It was created with 1/2 rosewood for the bass side and mahogany for the treble side to bring out the best of the d-28 and d-18 sounds. The top is a high grade sitka with tons and tons of cross-grain silking. The headstock is enlayed with the MTV logo in mother of pearl and a raised martin logo as well. The ebony fingerboard is inlayed with abalone ''unplugged'' in huge letters. It has an ebony saddle and pins. The previous owner put a pickup in it and it sounds great. The guitar had a crack in the neck near the headstock, but that has been repaired and re-finished. It has two hairline finish cracks on the sides but do not effect the structral integrity of the guitar. I have been playing the guitar for a few weeks and it is solid as a rock. No issues with the repair and I doubt anyone would ever see it unless they knew it was there.I give the guitar an 8 out of 10 due to a few scuffs and dings (not thru the finish). Could use a good wet sand and buff job to make it a 9.5 out of 10. It comes with a hard shell case and will be well packed for shipping. This guitar gets all of the attention for not only its looks but its unique sound in a jam or a plugged up show. A great guitar that has been played for its 12 years of life and is a true collectors guitar. The guitar is sold as is.Go to harmonycen
