This listing is for my beautiful Martin D7 Roger McGuinn Signature Edition.
Manufactured 2007-2008. Number 62 Signed limited edition.

Roger McGuinn describes this as 'the Swiss army knife of guitars'. It can be strummed, picked, flat picked and has nearly
all the zing of a 12 string but the convenience of a 6 string. When finger picked the 7th G string isn't even noticed but when strummed
or flat picked it sings out beautifully. And if you get bored with the 7 strings, the octave G can be removed and the guitar played
as a normal 6 string guitar.

I have also attached some relevant links to youtube where you can hear the potential of this model in the right hands!
Also a link to the AER AK15+ acoustic preamp/pick up system which I had professionally fitted at a cost of £245.

This guitar has had very light use and can only be described as faultless. It has no marks, scratches or dings of any form.
It will be sold in its original Martin hard case.

This guitar is very rare and is priced accordingly. It will only appreciate in value, I am gutted to be parting with this guitar but
funds are needed for a business opportunity. This model is no longer available new and it would be almost impossible to find
another like it (especially in UK). For this reason alone (and taking into account its condition) It is a very sound investment as
well as a lovely instrument to own.

The new UK price for this guitar prior to discontinuation was £2250!

Postage is for UK mainland only. I will consider sending to Europe but please obtain a postage quote from me BEFORE bidding.
Local pick up - cash / viewing / playing is possible with arrangement.
Cheques must clear before guitar dispatched.

Please read the following description taken from Martin website (the description is far better than I could give).

Basic but Beautiful: Roger McGuinn D-7 Signature Edition

Maine, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, California, New Hampshire, Florida, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New York, North Carolina, Iowa, Indiana, Ohio and New Jersey: Roger McGuinn played shows in all these states in the two years since Martin introduced the groundbreaking seven-string (with two "G" strings tuned an octave apart) HD-7 Roger McGuinn Signature Edition guitar. He also recorded a duet with Dolly Parton for her recent album, helped assemble tracks for the Byrds new ­ and very well-received - four-disc box set, "There is a Season," which details his pivotal role in America's first great rock band. In addition, he added several new songs to the Folk Den, his downloadable (at www.mcguinn.com) archive of traditional folk music, the best of which are now available in his four-disc set "The Folk Den Project, 1995-2005," a release Rolling Stone called "near perfect."

In short, it has been a busy and productive period for the musician whose influence ­ with the Byrds and as a solo artist - can be heard throughout today's rock and country music (for additional information on Roger McGuinn's remarkable career, check out the January 2005 "Sounding Board" at www.martinguitar.com).

However, busy as he has been, he still managed a stop in Nazareth to brainstorm with Martin Artist Relations Director Dick Boak on the creation of an affordable version of the HD-7 Roger McGuinn Signature Edition guitar, one that would get this exciting and unique seven-string design ­ one that combines McGuinn's signature "jingle-jangle" 12-string sound with the playing ease and versatility of a six-sting ­ into the hands of more musicians. They decided on a few modifications in specifications and appointments, and produced a basic but beautiful new Martin seven-string: the D-7 Roger McGuinn Signature Edition. With the new guitar, McGuinn joins a select group of musicians with three different Martin Signature Edition guitars to his name.

The beauty of the D-7 Roger McGuinn Signature Edition begins with the handsome solid tonewoods: East Indian rosewood back and sides for powerful projection, a Sitka spruce top reinforced with Martin's Hybrid scalloped bracing for rich tone and a Spanish cedar modified V neck. The 1 3/4'' (at the nut) fingerboard and unique "pointed" seven-string belly bridge are crafted from African black ebony.

While understated, the appointments have an elegance all their own. A single ring herringbone rosette decorates the soundhole and is matched by a herringbone back strip. Five-ply black/white Style 28 purfling around the top and black/white purfling around the back are both protected by grained ivoroid binding; the heel cap and end piece also are grained ivoroid.

On the solid squared and tapered headstock, the satin-finish African black headplate bears the familiar "C.F. Martin" logo in brilliant gold foil, as well as seven enclosed chrome tuners with small chrome buttons. The fingerboard features a modified version of Martin's "diamonds and squares" position markers inlaid in maple, leading to Roger McGuinn's signature between the 19th and 20th frets, also in maple.

A specially slotted bone nut and compensated bone saddle give the D-7 Roger McGuinn Signature Edition full, ringing tone. White bridge topped with black dots and a tortoise-color pickguard stand out against the rich amber of the vintage-toned, polished gloss top. Satin finish on the back and sides enhance the natural beauty of the wood; satin finish on the neck provides exceptional playing comfort.

The new Signature Edition should bring McGuinn's seven-string within reach of players who couldn't previously afford ­ or find - one. As his wife, Camilla McGuinn, observed in "Roadie Reports," her entertaining web chronicles of their travels, "Now there will be a Roger McGuinn D-7 that will fit the wallets of those wonderful musicians who want the joy of playing that double OG' string without the high cost."

Delivered in a hardshell case, each D-7 Roger McGuinn Signature Edition guitar bears an interior label personally signed by Roger McGuinn and Martin Chairman C.F. Martin IV, and numbered in sequence. A left-handed version of this guitar can be ordered at no additional cost: factory-installed electronics are an extra-cost option. Authorized C.F. Martin dealers will begin taking orders for the open-ended (for now) D-7 Roger McGuinn Signature Edition immediately and a list of participating dealers will be posted on the Martin website.
