About This Guitar

2016 Martin D-35 Brazilian 50th Anniversary #2 of 100 LR Baggs Lyric #1849673

This is #2 out of 100 Limited Edition D-35 Brazilian 50th Anniversary! We can assume CFM IV has #1! This guitar has a great rich sound! The Madagascar Rosewood with Brazilian Wedge offers a great dark and powerful tone. The European Spruce is gorgeous with some nice figuring! There is a LR Baggs Lyric pickup installed. 

It is very good condition. There is some light clouding to the finish on the back from normal playing. There is light fret wear in the first position. There are a few minor dings, and an impact ding on the top. The impact ding can be seen in the pics, the best way for me to highlight it is to get a reflection from a window. There is a finish crack there, and it does not go through the wood. There are pick marks on the pickguard. The original Geib case has been replaced with a 400 series case. 

Regarding the binding, you can feel a lip in the binding at the waist at all 4 positions. There is no movement in the binding, so there are no repairs necessary. To my amateur luthiery eye, it is difficult to tell if it has already been repaired or if it is slowly failing and will need serviced in the future.
