This is the Martin D-28 John Lennon 75th Anniversary Acoustic. It was limited to only 75 manufactured worldwide, to commemorate John Lennon’s 75th Birthday. It arrived here at Modern Music this week at a retail price of £9000.00 and was instantly sold to one of our customers. We think it’s great that a guitar of such rarity and value can be sold in Cornwall, and shows the strength of our local love for music. Modern Music will always strive to bring these interesting and rare guitars to Cornwall, which allows our local customers to purchase guitars of this rarity without having to visit any other retailer in the UK.
Here’s what Martin say: “To commemorate John Lennon’s 75th Birthday, this model is limited to only 75 instruments. This amazing Dreadnought will be highly sought after for many years and is sure to be a wonderful addition to any guitar enthusiast’s collection. A solid Adirondack spruce top with Vintage Tone System is combined with Madagascar rosewood back and sides for a strong and powerful bass resonance – the back being inlaid with HD-28 style zig-zag peace sign marquetry. The Madagascar rosewood headplate is adorned with John Lennon’s famous self-portrait illustration that rests beneath the Martin script logo. This beautiful mother-of-pearl, John Lennon themed design is inlaid throughout this model to make this a truly unique instrument. The interior label is personally signed by C. F. Martin IV and numbered in sequence with the edition total 20 of 75.”
