C. F. Martin & Co / M64 / 1987 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
Only produced between 1985 – 1995, the Martin M64 is a very unusual guitar. The M series is a great all-round body design from Martin, big enough to to challenge a jumbo in volume, but not as deep bodied making it far more comfortable to play. Essentially it’s a 0000 size guitar. What makes it rare is the Maple back and sides, rather than the more commonly found Rosewood. Usually on a Maple acoustic you’d expect sparkling trebles that can often take over from the bass response, but on this well matured example, the bass is low and warm, the mids are full, and the trebles are sweet but not overpowering. Being half way between a 000 size and a dreadnought, it’s a very versatile guitar, working well for fingerstyle, but really packing a punch when strummed. The guitar is in all original condition, with no cracks or repairs, just a few visible dings on the top, and in great playing condition. It comes in it’s original hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
