1996 Martin MTV1 Unplugged – £2499

NEW ARRIVAL  The Martin MTV1 Unplugged guitar was a very limited edition of 696, and offered for sale to Martin employees only. The guitar features the MTV logo in MOP on the headstock, Abalone fingerboard markers which spell UNPLUGGED, and an Abalone soundhole rosette, plus eye catching tortoiseshell binding. Most interesting of all, however, is the body – it has a Spruce top with ‘half and half’ Mahogany / Rosewood back and sides. Tonally it’s one of the most unusual acoustics I’ve played. At some points the Rosewood kicks in and produces great clarity and definition, and at other times the Mahogany warms the overall sound. It makes for a really interesting playing experience. Obviously it’s a very collectable guitar given it’s rarity, but it’s actually a great guitar to play, with the best features that Rosewood and Mahogany provide. The guitar’s in excellent condition, and comes in a non original Martin hard case.
