Default Martin OMC-18 Laurence Juber Adi/Hog Custom Edition 2008 with B-Band Pickup, $SOLD

***SOLD*** Congratulations to the new owner of this amazing guitar!
This is one of the best fingerstyle guitars I've ever played. The tone is golden, radiant. The notes are fat, clear, bold. The Adirondack/mahogany combination by Martin is magic. Signed by fingerstyle virtuoso Laurence Juber (#34). Juber says the mahogany/Adirondack combination "is my favorite for writing and I have recorded more with this wood more than any other." The setup is at 3/32" and 2/32" (low/high E strings at 12th fret) and plays like butter all the way up. Minor play wear and a few light dimples here and there consistent with its age and moderate use, but overall in great cosmetic and structural condition. This may be my personal favorite guitar ever. I was sure I'd never let this one go, but I've modeled it not once but twice for custom builds, and I've decided to let the original go to someone who will play it more often than I do now. It's a truly amazing guitar. $SOLD + actual shipping of your choice. PayPal ok. Please email me directly at Thanks! Here's a soundclip by the man himself, on this exact model:
