1 Only In Stock

Preowned Martin D-76 Limited Edition Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar

Wishing to honor the nation’s bicentennial year, CF Martin broke with tradition and designed their first commemorative model. This guitar had a bald eagle in etched mother of pearl inlaid just above the center of the headstock, the old style “C F Martin & Co.” logo on an East Indian rosewood veneer, six chrome Grover Rotomatic tuners, thirteen 5-point stars on the ebony fingerboard starting at the first fret and with the last double star inlay at the 17th.   It has an ebony belly bridge, a matching black pickguard, a wide grained Sitka spruce top that has oranged to a deep mellow yellow, as older guitars do.  The East Indian rosewood selected for its three-piece back is exquisite. The back is three-piece, like a D-35 except that the dividing lines are herringbone. Unlike a D-35 the fingerboard is unbound. 

The guitar’s ebony unbound fingerboard is inlaid with 13 mother of pearl stars in 9 fret positions.  It is otherwise similar to a D-35 in that it has five-ply black-white top binding, and a three-piece back, but the soundhole rosette on a D-76 is herringbone trimmed in the middle circle, and the two backstripes are also herringbone wood marquetry at their respective centers.   Its bridge pins are crème with black dots. 

This guitar is in very good condition for its age with only a few small dents and scratches, plus the standard black teardrop pickguard is curling on a few edges, but otherwise she is very clean. Also fitted is a discrete Fishman passive undersaddle pickup. Comes in it's original blue Martin flight case.
