Here's a seriously cool 12 string! Custom ordered, it's #148 of 200 made in this configuration. It features a few things that set it apart from a regular J12-16. The body is Martin's J size and offers big tone and looks in a comfortable package. The top is solid spruce and the back and sides are solid rosewood. This model usually had mahogany back and sides so that is a nice upgrade. The body has some nice custom ordered appointments. The binding is white (as opposed to black as on a normal J12-16) and goes well with the custom ordered 45 style back stripe and custom ordered pearl rosette. The mahogany neck features a rosewood fingerboard with 20 frets. A rosewood bridge and sealed tuners keep it rock solid. The finish is natural with a gloss finish top and satin back and sides and is set off by a tortoise pickguard. Top notch specs on this example and a great price!

This is a great sounding 12 string with good tone and projection. The neck is straight, the action is good and the frets are fine. Structurally, the guitar is 100% with no cracks or breaks. A good example. It's also in nice cosmetic shape. It shows some light scratches and a few light indents. Very well taken care of. Comes in original hardshell case.

Martin is one of the most respected names in guitars thanks to their craftsmanship and quality. If you were looking for a nice 12 string at a good price, this J12-16 could be the ticket. Thanks to some very cool custom features, you may be the only one in town with one quite like it. Here's your chance to grab a great guitar at a great price.
