Seller: imaspinner (361) 100%, Location: New Britain, PA, Ships to: US, Item: 270711276764 This is a custom Martin 000-15sm, from the first batch of 28 made for My Favorite Guitars [Naples, Florida], spring of 2010. The first batch sold out quickly. I asked not to have the interior label glued inside the guitar, but I do have it - it’s in the case. I’m the original owner, it is registered with Martin under my name, so there is no factory warranty. It’s based on the new ‘M’ series of Martins, that are a big step above the normal 15 series guitars, which are fantastic guitars in their own right, read all of the reviews online, these 12 fret slotheads enjoy near cult status among Martin players, especially on the UMGF [Unofficial Martin Guitar Forum]. The ‘M’ guitars are 100% solid mahogany, have the backstrip with the Martin logo [no backstrip on the normal 15 series], real rosette rather than the decal of the standard 15 series, Grover open back tuners, old style Martin decal [found on high dollar Martins above Standard Series], diamonds and squares fret markers, bone nut and saddle, ebony bridge pins, and a darker finish than the 15 series. The guitar was brought to a near factory gloss [as opposed to the original satin finish], leveling the satin nitrocellulose lacquer with 1500-2000 grit paper, and finishing with Stew Mac Swirl Remover and Preservation Polish [no silicones in each]. The work was professionally done by a luthier [name on request] at a cost of $250. The original pickguard was removed in the process, but I was getting some tiny fingernail scratches in the finish where the pickguard should have been, so I put another pickguard on. It’s a Martin pickguard from a 000-18, probably not a 100% perfect color match for the mahogany top, but it is easily removed and replaced if this is bothersome. The guitar has no issues, other than some micro scratches and one tiny, tiny, ding on the edge where the binding normally goes. It plays beautifully, no dead notes or intonation problems. Included is the Martin 300 series hardshell case made for this model. If you have less than 5 feedbacks, I reserve the right to cancel your bid, unless you email me first with references.
