Don't know what it is, but it's only $7k.

Get it while you can.

Say what?

O - M - G!!!

Even if that IS a Martin, it's been so highly modified, it has no value left. I wonder who did all the *wonderful* (cough, cough) inlays on that thing? It's criminal!

And who decided to used that "eyelet" screw for a strap button?

That is pitiful from start to finish.

I'm gonna buy it, for the lime green case lining.

Actually I don't think I'd buy it for $7 let alone $7k.

Tacky mods aside, the real question is, "How does it play and sound?"

Well, if it IS a 1960 D-28, it has Brazilian back and sides, but that doesn't make it worth $7K with all the *extras*...

I'll bet it's laminated jacaranda at best.

Ragtop, I was in the Philippines in the 80s and one Saturday night, on a bender, I had my jacaranda laminated.


I gotta say--you haven't *lived* until you've tried it :o)
