$1,499.00

Product Description

1983 MARTIN SHANENDOAH SERIES 1 D-2832 W HARDSHELL CASE

IN THE EARLY 80s THERE WERE MANY GUITAR COMPANIES THAT WERE IMPORTING GUITARS FROM JAPAN, PUTTING THE NECKS ON IN THE US AND CLAIMING THEY WERE MADE IN THE USA TO AVOID PAYING IMPORT TAXES AND TO KEEP COSTS DOWN.  THIS DIDN'T FLY WITH THE GOVERNMENT AND BECAME A BLESSING FOR MARTIN TO CREATE THEIR FIRST HIGH-QUALITY LOWER PRICED GUITARS WHICH STARTED OFF AS THE SERIES 1 SHANENDOAH D-2832.

THE D-2832 IS MADE WITH A SOLID SPRUCE TOP AND A LAMINATE ROSEWOOD BACK WITH THE SAME SPECS OF THE MARTIN D-28 DOWN TO THE HERRINGBONE AND BINDING.  THESE HIGH QUALITY PARTS WERE THEN IMPORTED TO THE US AND ASSEMBLED, TESTED, AND SOLD THROUGH THE AMERICAN MARTIN FACTORY.  THE RESULT WAS AN EXTREMELY HIGH QUALITY GUITAR FOR MUCH LESS THAN THE AMERICAN MADE MARTIN INSTRUMENTS.

THIS IS A FIRST YEAR SHANENDOAH AND THEREFORE WAS ASSEMBLED HERE IN THE US.  AFTER A FEW YEARS THEY BEGAN MAKING THE ENTIRE LINE OVERSEAS WHICH IS WHY THE SERIES 1 INSTRUMENTS ARE CONSIDERED THE MOST COLLECTABLE.  THIS GUITAR LOOKS, SOUNDS, AND PLAYS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLY.  OWN A STELLAR VINTAGE MARTIN ACOUSTIC FOR LESS! 

INCLUDES HARDSHELL CASE
