Default European Sale: 2011 Martin D-21 Special- Forward Shifted Scalloped Bracing- EXCELLENT

Martin D-21 Special in Excellent condition (very few marks given the age).

Euro 2500

Forward Shifted Scalloped Bracing!

Martin D-21 Special With Forward Shifted Scalloped Bracing

LIKE A HD-28 v but with a pyramid Bridge.

Very fine and narrow Sitka spruce grain with beautiful silking.

It's a 2011 model bought in October 2013.
Tonally, it is loud due to its size as a dreadnought, but it is a balanced martin across the registers. It's not as bass heavy as the HD-28V (although the same bracing) or D-28 Authentic, it's an excellent overall guitar (strumming and fingerstyle) especially when recording. That was the reason I bought it. The nut width was also important for me.
