1980 Martin D37K – £1799

NEW ARRIVAL This is one of my favourite Martin models, though quite a rare one being only made between 1980 – 1995, making this from the first year of issue. It’s a dreadnought with Spruce top and flamed Koa back and sides – adding to it’s rarity is that Koa is only grown in Hawaii and therefore in short supply. The aged Koa wood really makes a difference to the sound, ultra crisp clear high end with beautiful sustain, mellow mid range and a really deep bass. The gorgeous wood grain with high gloss finish just makes this high end Martin stand out from the crowd. The guitar is all original, in very good condition with the sort of playwear you’d expect from a 40 year old guitar, with two professional top crack repairs. Once you pick up the guitar it’s very difficult to put back down, the action is comfortable and the tone just beautiful – this guitar demands to be played. It comes in it’s original Marin embossed hard case.
