This guitar is a standard issue lightly used 2007 Martin DM that has been modified with a split saddle bridge and a split saddle nut. The saddle height and the string height at the nut has been reset with the action lowered for ease of fingering and speed. The guitar is now optimized for intonation and action, plays exceptionally well and is as in tune as it can be... which is pretty good.

Offered for sale at $2000
