This is not a regular Martin catalog item and is a Custom Shop instrument built to a high standard befitting of a Martin guitar. Sting often plays a Size 5 which allows for many stringing and tuning options. Tuning up a third (Terz tuning) with light strings is common for this guitar while it certainly handles standard tuning with ease.
The 12th fret guitar is built with an engelmann spruce top that has aged well to a rich golden hue. It is paired well with Indian rosewood with results in great articulation over a wide tonal range. The guitar great for recording or cutting through the mix and certainly excels
This consigned guitar has been well kept by its owner and is in excellent condition. If you are looking for a portable guitar which offers a great Martin tone that can adapt to various tuning options, this will certainly come as a delight.
