2014 Sigma SDR28 LME Ltd Edition – £699
NEW ARRIVAL Sigma guitars have had a long standing relationship with Martin guitars. In the 1970’s they used to be made in China then shipped to Martin & Co in the US for inspection and set up before being sold – meaning you could buy a Martin approved acoustic guitar for a lower price than a US made Martin. Sigma now build guitars without the Martin inspection, but still keep the Martin inspired logo and Martin inspired model range – this guitar is the equivalent to a Martin D28 but a limited edition featuring a solid Adirondack Spruce top with solid Madagascan Rosewood back and sides. It’s a strong strummer yet when fingerpicked it articulates each string and note very well. Very loud and powerful across the spectrum, this is a guitar that is dynamic but also tone-ful. In excellent condition, with little visible playwear, it has a comfortable neck and good playing action. It comes in it’s original deluxe hard case.
