Just wondering if anyone on the forum has heard of or played a Martin D16M ? I picked one up recently in a music store in Dublin, Ireland, a 1987 model which was bought in Seattle USA in '87..I have no idea how it got to Dublin, but I do have its original purchase papers. Its an absolutely fab sounding guitar, and it has not yet been played all that much, ( well I have it just a year and have played it non stop since I got it but it was very under played when I got it. Its got a sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides. Its a very light and very loud guitar, has a nice mid-rangey type of voice when you play it hard. If anyone owns one, or has played one I would love to hear from you.
I was on the look out for a D28 and this shop had a lovely HD 28 for sale for not much more money but the D16M just knocked it out of the water .. From what I can make out, it was a limited run which Martin did in the eighties and the guitar is more akin to a D18 than a D16 .Lets know if you have any knowledge on these Martins.
