Martin Guitars built this lovely dreadnought as a tribute to Jim Croce. This was a very limited run with only 73 pieces built in premium sitka spruce top and Brazilian rosewood back and sides. The guitar sounds huge with complex tones expected of a dreadnought built with the holy grail of tone woods.
A dime inlaid into the third fret as well as Jim Croce’s signature on the 19th fret adds a unique touch to complete another highly collectible Martin guitar.
This guitar has been kept in immaculate condition its owner and is as good as new. The top has aged to a rich golden brown and will be a fine addition to any collection.
