Martin after 1970
There are plenty of great Martin guitars that have been made after 1970, particularly those made in the last 10 years. I especially like those made with extra stiff Adirondack Spruce tops that give a snappy clear treble to go along with the famous Martin bass. Personal favorites are new D-18GE and D-18A and some OM and 12 fret OOO models that I get in trade with Martin dealers.
Coming Soon: 1999 OM-28V, 1994 D-45 Gene Autry, 2008 D-18A
