This is a 2012 model of the C.F. Martin and Company D-16GT (glossy top) Dreadnought sized acoustic guitar made in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. It is in excellent condition, and playable right away. A one owner instrument, it was purchased new at the Denver Folklore Center, where it was professionally set up. It plays with no buzzes or rattles. It has been well cared for in an adult, non-smoking household. This guitar has no cosmetic issues at all – even the pickguard shows little wear. It has had a 2nd (chrome) strap button professionally installed. Serial #1691618. The original hard-shelled case is in very good condition, smells nice (like a Martin Guitar), and has only the few dings you would expect for a 6 year old case. Here are all the specs for this model from the Martin website:Martin D-16GT Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:”D” is for dreadnoughtSitka spruce topMahogany back and sides”D” is for dreadnoughtThe famous Martin dreadnought, with its “D” designation, is without a doubt the most popular size steel-string flat-top guitar. Nearly 16 inches wide and five inches deep, the “D” is Martin’s largest body and one of the biggest voices in the acoustic guitar world.Sitka spruce topThe D-16GT’s top is crafted of Sitka spruce. Its high stiffness combined with the lightweight characteristics of most softwoods, makes it a natural for a high velocity of sound. A strong fundamental-to-overtone ratio gives Sitka spruce a powerful direct tone capable of retaining its clarity when played forcefully. This makes Sitka an excellent choice for top wood for players whose style demands a wide dynamic response and a robust, meaty tone.Mahogany back and sidesWhen employed for back and sides, mahogany has relatively high velocity of sound, which contributes overtone coloration. While rosewood guitars may be thought of as having a metallic sound, the D-16GT’s mahogany back and sides sound more wood-like.Martin D-16GT Features:D-14 Fret body sizeSolid Sitka spruce top with polished gloss top finishBold Herringbone rosetteSolid genuine mahogany back and sides with satin, light mahogany stain finishBlack Boltaron endpiece and bindingSolid Spanish cedar neck and modified low-oval shape with semi-gloss, light red mahogany stain and dark filler finishSolid/6-string, no diamond/standard taper headstockSolid East Indian rosewood headplate with gold-foil logoSolid East Indian rosewood heelcapRichlite fingerboard and bridge25.4″ scale length20 fretsCompensated White Tusq saddleChrome tuning machines with small knobs345 Hardshell case
