Default SOLD Pending payment. - 2013 Martin OM-28 Marquis - excellent

Magnificent 2013 Martin OM-28 Marquis. Highly sought out and discontinued so value will only continue to rise. Excellent condition. Beautiful Adi top 5/6 grade. Fossilized Ivory nut and saddle. I honestly cannot find a scratch or a dent.
SOLD sale/trade. +/- little bit of cash not a problem. Lower 48 only.

For trades I like Mahogany b/s and wide string spacing (the wider the better. I got spoiled by Marquis). 1 3/4 minimum, and prefer standard scale, 14 fret. I prefer OM's. No dreads unless you have new (2016/17) Vintage hummingbird or new vintage J-45 (2016/17).
No rosewood b/s unless it is maybe OM-42. I just want to try something different, so let me know what you got.

Great sounding guitar! Many of these I find to be overly warm, but not yours. Real nice clarity and definition in those notes. Some great looking wood on this one too.

(if you don't mind me asking, what are the names of those songs in Clips 1 and 3 ? )

Thanks for the comments. It is probably due to Adi top. It does give it a nice clarity and punch. Very balanced across strings.
Clip 1 is small section from Mark Sylvester's American Gypsy Part 2
Clip 3 is small section from Al Pettaway's "The Crossing"
