Advert Description

Vintage Martin D16M.
This will suit a collector or someone that is looking for something special. The guitar has a number of gig related marks scratches and knocks on it, nothing that affects the unbelievable playability and excellent tone . It has been a working guitar all of its life. It has a simple piezo pick up fitted to the bridge with the jack input in the strap button. Not many of these around and It will only rise in value.
Comes with fitted Kinsman case.

Martin made the "D16M" as a limited run between 1986 and 1991. The D16M is NOT ANYTHING LIKE the modern basic Martin D16 series. It is actually closer to the D18-V with standard build specs, forward shifted scalloped bracing, (aka Vintage) and dovetail neck joint.

This guitar is one of Martin's hidden treasure and word is the discontinued it because it was hard to sell D18's while this was in the line.
