2008 Martin D-16 Ryman Auditorium Limited Edition # 4 Built ~ Natural

You are looking at a 2008 Martin D-16 Ryman Auditorium limited edition, # 4 built in this very sought after and limited run. Ryman Auditorium is a very famous venue in Nashville. What makes this guitar so cool and unique is that Martin used the wood from the Ryman pews to make the fret inlays, pick-guard and headstock overlay. Needless to say, this is a collector’s dream guitar! The action is perfect and she sounds like a great Martin should! She’s 100% original, and I just put on a fresh new set of 13-56’s, so she’s all dressed up and ready to rock!

She was born in 2008 and is in mint condition. I just picked this up from a collector, who has many guitars and only kept this one as a collector’s piece. There is no play wear to report. The strap peg has never been inserted and is still in its original envelope. The neck is straight, with no cracks or repairs… the frets are perfect, with their entire life ahead of them… and the sound is as sweet as it gets! Also included is the original Martin hard shell case, and includes the case candy, just as shown in the last picture! Whoever brings this baby home is going to be completely STOKED!!
