Default Australia- 2009 Martin Grand J12-40E Special

Make no mistake - this is a serious 12-string.
Did Martin set out to build a better Guild F-512?
This model was only made for 3 years, 2009/10/11 and only 231 were ever built.
Martins first true Super Jumbo body with 17" lower bout.
D-Tar pick-up system that I've never even heard - never plugged it in.
Original owner.
These sold new in Australia for $7299.00.
Set up by Phil Haworth himself - founder of Haworth Music.
This thing thumps against your chest - no girly chimey jangly tone.
Incredible guitar.
$5000.00 ono.

Still for sale.
To ship outside Australia the guitar will need a pre-CITES certificate.
These are free but can take up to 40 days to process.

Default Bruce the Almighty

Bruce is a real gentleman. I agreed to purchase this instrument and Bruce began the application for the pre-CITES certificate. He notified me a few days later that an example of this guitar had just been listed at a dealer in my area and encouraged me to purchase it. Bruce is the best, forget the rest!

Thanks Glenn.
It's the only guitar I keep in it's case - with a D'Addario 2-way humidification system.
All my other guitars are on stands spread around my living room.
As such, it's just not getting played as much as it deserves.

Martin even changed their traditional bridge pin sequence to match Guild - primary strings closest to the saddle/octaves at the rear.

Trouble was ... they were just too expensive, double the cost of a new Guild F-512!

I just pulled this out of it's case to check the D'Addario/Planet Waves 2-way humidification system packs were all OK.... all perfect.
- It still smells fantastic!
- It still sounds amazing!
