At Telluride Music Co., we are honored to be an authorized dealer of C.F. Martin guitars. In 2012, Martin announced the return of style-17 guitars. In the prewar era, most style-17 instruments featured all-Mahogany construction with discrete, understated appointments. While this D-17M boasts the same simplicity of design, it is outfitted with a solid Sitka Spruce top to add complex dynamics and power to the all-Mahogany design. At the same time, its Mahogany back and sides provide warmth and richness that pay homage to the original style-17. As an added bonus, the sunburst top offers a stunning look that highlights the tortoise binding. This D-17M seems particularly lightweight, like an old D-18. Along with the 000-17SM, the D-17M is one of the most impressive offerings we’ve seen from Martin in a long time, especially at this price. Please call (970) 728-9592 or e-mail for an in-hand description.
