Martin D41S all solid all Made in USA dreadnought acoustic guitar +case

Summary:
Chris (MD. Guitar Mania) says: “Here we have an absolutely gorgeous sounding Martin dreadnought acoustic guitar. It really is stunning. The most amazing mellow tone with the BEST resonance and sustain I have ever heard. This is a top notch example of a top notch guitar.”

Hard case or Gig Bag: Original Martin hard case
From the Martin website the serial number equates to a 2015 build date.

Condition: 9.5/10
From a few feet away it looks brand new. On close ultra close inspection up close and in bright light, even then you’ll need good eyes to spot any marks, but it IS a used guitar, so there are some extremely minor signs of wear and tear, but very very minor. Some minuscule scratches in the form of polishing swirls but nothing other than very very minor.
No evidence of buckle rash on the back either just minuscule polishing swirls.

Neck: 9/10
The frets are in excellent condition with only the most minuscule signs of use, if any, with NO dimples, dents or flat spots. There are no signs of wear on the fretboard either and no dents or marks on the rear of the neck.

Hardware: 9/10
The machineheads are original, in excellent working order and no signs of rust and only the most minuscule signs of any tarnish, just fingerprints.

Electrics: – none fitted

Playability:
This guitar has been lovingly set up by Jon, one of the UK’s most highly regarded and experienced guitar techs.
That doesn’t mean this guitar is the best playing guitar ever, it just means that he has taken the time to set it up. Adjust the action, intonation etc so that it plays as well as can be expected and stays in tune as good as any guitar of this type does.
We all have differing styles and demands from our instruments. Some of us like fast n low actions for fretboard tapping percussive styles, others prefer a high n mightly action for energetic strumming / busking and everything in between. No one set up suits all!
This specific guitar has been set up sympathetically for it’s style so has a fairly low action, and minimal fret buzzing.

Case:
Supplied with original Martin ABS moulded hard case and will be shipped boxed securely.

Priced with all of the above in mind but feel free to “make an offer”.
