Default Martin discontinued models specs?

Hi,

I'm currently looking for a guitar on the second-hand market, and found a Martin DM that looked nice. However when I tried looking up the specs, I didn't seem to find anything on the Martin official website. Are there really no official place you can look up stuff like this? I find that to be odd from such a big manufacturer as Martin.

In any case, the thing I couldn't find out was what kind of material the guitar uses for the dot inlays, in case anybody on here knows the answer to that.
