i have a martin that I bought used a year or so ago at GC (i know, I know... not always the best place). I had thought that it was a fairly bottom line model and haggled it down to around $700. It sounded great and I am very happy with it. Good balance for finger-picking. It is made in America, dreadnaught style, with a tortoise pick guard, solid spruce top, sides and back are mahagony, rosewood fretboard, solid headstock, dot inlay, and white binding. I will attempt to put a pic up if needed. Oh, and by the way, the serial number came back as a 2003 model. I looked it up on martin's webpage, but I couldn't find a guitar that matched it. it looks like all the models now have black binding in their descriptions. any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
