2012 Martin Blackwell
650 scale
Spruce double top
Madagascar sides and back
Fan braced
Build in Arm rest
Near mint condition

Beautiful instrument that is super strong quick and powerful. The trebles sustain like carbon yet with nylon strings. Basses quite deep with a lot of character. Body resonance at F. Has wonderful clarity for Bach yet plenty of power and bite for villa lobos or lyrical for romantic music.

If interested PM me and I will text or email nice pics. Very handsome instrument.

He is very underrated IMO. This guitar sounds even better out front than in your lap. great separation of the notes. I would be keeping and playing her often if I could play.

Now that's a beautiful set of Madagascar RW. I've heard really great things about Martin's guitars. Whoever snatches this one gets a guitar that is already broken in, from a trusted seller who can confirm its sound quality, skips the long wait period, and saves money compared to buying brand new.

Thanks for posting Charles. Yes I would keep her if I could play for sure.

Just wanted to mention that I purchased Jim's Andreas Kirschner guitar and, throughout that process, he was incredibly responsive and helpful. The guitar came safely packed and was just as described when it arrived. It was a very pleasant experience and a wonderful guitar. I would certainly buy from him again and can easily recommend him to others.

I do not as one of the reasons i am selling is I cannot play very well because of FD. I can tell you the sound is as I described. Otherwise I would keep the guitar. Anyone would be hard pressed to tell the difference between this guitar and other builders that cost 2-3 times as much.
