Brand: Martin
Dexterity: Right-Handed Style: DREADNOUGHT
String Configuration: 6 String Series: Special Edition
Country of Manufacture: USA

Martin DSR Dreadnaught Acoustic 6-string guitar in like new condition. Not a nick or scratch on it. Bought from Guitar Center in 2007, retails for $1799.99.  Not available new at all, anywhere, only used AND NOT IN THIS CONDITION FOR THIS PRICE!. Comes with original hard shell case. This is also being listed on Craig's List at the same time and could end at any time.

Solid Sitka Spruce top and solid Rosewood sides and back. When Martin made it, it only had either solid back or sides, not both. This was made especially for the market outside of Martin. My understanding was it was made just for Guitar Center which is why the serial # is Martin (E) DSR-"GC" CST Dread. The "CG" stands for Guitar Center to be 100% clear on this point. Martin did have the DSR in their line at one time, but no more! Neck and fret board  is Mahogany. A-Frame bracing under the top. Mortise-tenon neck joint. Nut material is White Corian on the ones that Musian's Friend sells but this one has all metal  tuners made by Martin. Neck shape is modified  low oval. Very comfortable to play. Kory Krahl who is a specialist at repairing and restoring stringed instruments and a very good friend of mine, did a real nice job at customizing the saddle for perfect playability. He is a “Martin Authorized Warranty Repairman.” Pickguard still has plastic protective covering on it. Played less than an hour, WHAT A CRIME!!!

Shipping will include insurance. Shipping outside the U.S is expensive and I will NOT make up a lesser price so your taxes/duties are less. This is a big guitar and so is the box. 27lbs boxed. 50" x 20" x 10". UPS Ground to the U.S. looks like $26.00- $56.00 range, insured. USPS is $61.00 - $107.00 Parcel Post, not an option for me. I do ship worldwide, you're responsible for whatever those charges are, so check first!

Please ask any questions before placing your bid. All sales are final and no refunds unless item is NOT as described, and it is as described!

Please contact me within 3 days of your invoice so I know you received it or I will send another. I expect payment within 5 days unless other arrangements are made ahead of time. 

     I accept Pay Pal only. Pay Pal allows you to use your credit cards for immediate payment which results in immediate feedback and shipping within 1-2 days, though it's usually the very next day.

Thanks for looking and good luck. Mike
