Martin D-21 Special in good condition. Built in 2010.
With its Sitka top, rosewood back/sides, and forward-shifted X-bracing, the D-21 Special is essentially an HD-28 with a few interesting cosmetic differences:
- Aging toner finish
- Rosewood binding
- Herringbone rosette
- Antiqued tuners
Fully detailed and set up here at Avenue Guitars; plays great up and down the neck.
Tonally, this D-21 is very big and open tone with tons of low end and warmth.
Two repaired top cracks (glued and cleated, work done here). Moderate finish checking on top. A handful of small dings and scuffs from normal use, but nothing major.
Includes original deluxe Geib-style hardshell case with arched top, leather handles, and burgundy interior.
Note: This version of the D-21 Special is completely different from the more recent iteration released by Martin.
