This is one from my personal collection. It´s initial attraction is that it is a dead ringer for a Martin style ´A´model. See photo for comparison, the ´A´
Martin is on the Left. Having recently aquired the Martin is of course my only reason for offering ´The Michigan´ for sale, it´s just a shame I don´t have room to keep everything! The Michigan it almost identical to the Martin having a dark Mahogany Neck; Back & Ribs; cranked Spruce top with an inlaid imitation Tortoiseshell pickguard. There is some extremely attractive Fruitwood parquetry inlay around the top edges including the soundhole. There is a slight distortion to the top where fretboard joins the soundhole, but is structurally sound! Plays very clean, with a loud balanced tone. Comes in original Soft Shell Case £295
