Martin D35 with LR Baggs M1a Pickup Natural, 2008

Martin D35 with LR Baggs M1a Pickup Natural, 2008

The Martin D35, recognizable for its distinctive three-piece back, has been part of Martin’s standard lineup since its 1965 introduction. The design was generated for a practical reason – it allowed use of smaller sections of Rosewood that could not fit on a two-piece back as used on the D-28 or D-45. While the D28 and D35 share many construction features, the D35 can have a bit more tonal range and better developed low and high end response and balance.

⚌Reduced‼ Taylor Solidbody Standard Tamo Ash Top Edgeburst, 2008

The Taylor Solidbody Standard was built from 2008 until the line was discontinued in 2014, and for two years featured a Sapele body with a lovely Tamo Ash top. Over the course of its production, Taylor offered three models – the Classic, Standard and Custom, in single and double cutaway versions. While called a solidbody, the Taylor Solidbody Standard is actually chambered. For 2008 and 2008, the body is Sapele with a Tamo Ash veneer top, Mahogany for the neck and Ebony for the fingerboard head plate and truss rod cover. For hardware, standard Taylor branded sealed tuners are at the head, a pair of Taylor Style 1 humbucking pickups with a 5-way pickup selector, and Master Volume and Tone controls.

❌SOLD❌ Fender 70 Esquire Relic Blonde, 2008

Here is a rare Custom Shop Fender 70 Esquire Relic with Rosewood fingerboard in translucent blonde, and sporting an added Lollar neck pickup. This model was built in a run of 20 examples during 2008. The Fender Esquire was the first Electric Spanish style guitar to appear in a Fender catalog (all the others were Hawaiian or steel guitars), making its debut in the spring of 1950. This single pickup model didn’t have an adjustable truss rod, but by the fall of 1950, the two-pickup Broadcaster appeared and adjustable truss rods were standard for all the necks.
