2002 Dave Nichols 00 Style Acoustic Guitar (No longer available)

Comments: Dave Nichols has spent decades doing custom inlay work, including a lot for Martin. His work shows a high degree of familiarity with pearl inlay – it looks like it was easy for the builder to do, a sure sign that it isn’t.

This 2002 Dave Nichols 00 Style acoustic guitar is in good playing condition and looks fantastic. The 00 style is one of the smaller Martin body styles, much smaller than the standard dreadnought, and very well suited to fingerstyle playing.
