Martin / HD-7 Roger McGuinn Limited #95 / 2005 / Guitar For Sale

Martin HD-7 Roger McGuinn Limited edition dreadnought. Bears serial number #95 and was made in 2005. For a musician with a deep appreciation of the traditional, Roger McGuinn has built his 45-year career on the cutting edge. From putting folk-rock and country-rock on the map as leader of the Byrds to harnessing technology to support his craft, he has been a pioneer, even while creating some of the most memorable music of his generation. So when McGuinn came to Martin with an idea for a custom guitar, Martin expected something radical and they got it: a unique seven-string instrument. The finished guitar proved so exceptional Martin decided – with his okay – to offer it as the HD7 Roger McGuinn Signature Edition. This is Roger McGuinn’s second Signature Edition. Back in 1999, Martin produced the D12-42RM, an exquisite 12-string with a solid headstock for easy string changing. The HD7 Roger McGuinn Signature Edition represents one of the most unusual instruments in Signature Series history. Featuring a doubled G-string, with the second string tuned an octave higher, the HD7 Roger McGuinn Signature Edition captures McGuinn’s signature “jinglejangle” 12-string sound, but also offers the versatility to handle single-string runs, leads and bends. McGuinn has been playing this custom version on the road and clearly loves it. “It’s truly three guitars in one; the Swiss army knife of guitars!” The extra power that the double-G lends to the mid-range sound is startling to both the player and the listener, and playing the 7-string is intuitive without requiring any special fingering. Both headstock and bridge on this unique Dreadnought Signature Edition are modified to handle the extra string. Seven gold Schaller tuners with ebony buttons installed asymmetrically on the solid, squared headstock – three on the bass side and four on the treble side – provide smooth, easy tuning. The belly bridge features a distinctive point under the seventh string, a “dropped” seventh string anchor and special 2.225” string spacing. A 1-3/4” neck width at the nut provides plenty of room for the extra string and playing comfort similar to a standard six-string guitar. The HD7 Roger McGuinn Signature Edition features classic Martin quality throughout. The solid Sitka spruce top, solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, and forward-shifted scalloped top braces assure rich, powerful tone. A Style 45 abalone pearl rosette surrounds the soundhole, and a Style 45 multicolored strip accents the bookmatched back. Bold herringbone purfling encircles the top, black/white fine line purfling embellishes the sides and back, and all three are bound in grained ivoroid. The genuine mahogany modified V neck features a polished East Indian rosewood headplate on which “C. F. Martin” is inlaid in Style 45 block letters. The black African ebony fingerboard showcases Style 45 abalone hexagon position markers, with a subtle number “7” inlaid into the first hexagonal fret marker in mother of pearl. Roger McGuinn’s signature is inlaid between the 19th and 20th frets. Both headplate and fingerboard are bound in grained ivoroid inset with mitered black/white line inlays. The grained ivoroid heelcap and endpiece likewise are accented with mitered back/white inlays. The Roger McGuinn Signature Edition reflects nearly a lifetime of playing experience by its creator. The HD7 Roger McGuinn Signature Edition’s top is tinted with vintage toner and protected by a polished tortoise-colored pickguard. Both the special nut and compensated saddle are fashioned from genuine bone. The body showcases a beautiful polished gloss finish, while the neck receives a satin finish. Each HD7 Roger McGuinn Signature Edition bears an interior numbered label signed by Roger McGuinn and Martin Chairman C.F. Martin IV. Excellent condition with signs of use on the entire instrument, dings and scratches on the top finish. Includes original hardshell case and built in pickup.

ABOUT US

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail info@thefellowshipofacoustics.com My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
