We love these Martin "Special" (SP) Style 16 models from the '90s. Martin wanted to give their Style 16 Series more status, and succeeded big time by adding cool upgrades like the abalone rosette, snowflake fretboard inlays and matching inlays in the bridge tips. Even more importantly they're lightly braced and sound great. This example is a one-owner guitar that's been here in Palo Alto since it was new, but hasn't seen too many playing hours in the last 20 years and so has only light fret wear. Best of all it's been handled very carefully and is in excellent+ condition, with no significant dents, dings, or scratches and certainly no cracks!. Original Martin case.
