C. F. Martin & Co / SWOM GT / 2009 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
Introduced in the late 90’s, Martin’s SW (Sustainable Wood) range was one of the first of it’s kind. Proving that high end guitars can be produced in an ethically sourced way. This OM is made from all solid woods, and features a Sitka Spruce top with Cherry back and sides. The finishing touches are particularly striking, with faux tortoise head plate, rosette, heel cap, body binding and centre back stripe, and really set the guitar off against the aged toner. Tonally it's very interesting, as Cherry has the smoothness of Mahogany and the detail of Rosewood. It’s hugely versatile, capable of both bright and punchy tones, yet quite complex and able to handle the most subtle of playing styles - beautifully balanced with great definition. The guitar is in excellent condition, with a couple of dings on the top, and has a K and K pickup fitted. It comes in it's original Martin embossed 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.
