❌ SOLD ❌ David Nichols 00 Body Steel String Guitar, 2002

Here’s a rare treat – from 2002, a David Nichols 00 Body Steel String Guitar, at Custom Pearl Inlay in Whippleville, New York. Nichols has been the mainstay of the C F Martin inlay department since the late 1960’s and builds guitars and mandolins under his own name. This fine instrument is in very good condition. Built using the classic Martin 00 design, this guitar uses Bearclaw-figured Sitka Spruce for the top, Brazilian Rosewood for the back, sides and headplate, Mahogany for the neck and Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. The top is braced with a forward shifted, scalloped layout.

❌ SOLD ❌ C. F. Martin Grand J-12 40e Twelve String Jumbo Acoustic, 2011

❌ SOLD ❌ C. F. Martin Grand J-12 40e Twelve String Jumbo Acoustic, 2011

This C. F. Martin Grand J-12 40e Special is a close cousin of the fantastic 2005 Martin J-40 posted recently. The Grand J-12 40e is a 12-string guitar, using a slightly larger version of the J body, with ’40’ level Abalone decorations and a DTAR multi-source pickup system. The Grand J body is somewhat bigger than a the standard J, and has a remarkably full bottom end and midrange presence delivered without hesitation. The top end is as bright and sparkly as you would expect from a Sitka Spruce top.

❌SOLD❌ G W Barry M-Body Steel String Acoustic Guitar, 1998

This G W Barry M-Body guitar was built during 1998 at G W Barry’s shop in Toronto, Canada. As such, it features Barry’s ‘M’ body design, derived partly from the Martin style body. The top is Sitka Spruce with a paua abalone rosette and top binding, the back, sides and neck plate of Indian Rosewood, with mahogany for the neck and ebony for the bridge and bound fingerboard. A Fishman Matrix pickup, with no controls, is installed to an endpin jack. Tuners are by Gotoh, and have ebony buttons. The A button has a crack, which is relatively common with these units.

❌SOLD❌ C. F. Martin J-40 Steel String Acoustic Guitar, 2005

Sometimes a guitar can surprise you. I picked up this Martin J-40 having handled a number of 000 guitars recently, and was taken aback by its depth and power. It sounds fantastic! Though the J body is not a lot bigger than a triple-0, it has a remarkably full bottom end and midrange presence delivered without hesitation.
