Sorry, this listing has ended.


1997 Martin 00-16DB Deep Body Women & Music
Limited Run #91 Of Only 97 Made

NOTE:  This guitar was only made in 1997.  It is not in the Vintage Guitar Guide.  Do not mistake this "DB" for a 00-16DBR, DBM or DBFM.  All others had much higher production numbers and are not made of the same materials, and are not the same guitar.  If you comparing, please compare apples to apples.

PLEASE DO NOT mistake picture glare for flaws..  If you think your seeing something not mentioned in this listing, please ask!!

This Rare Limited Production 00 Size USA Martin is a great sounding & playing guitar!  If your trying to compare this guitar to the other 00-16 DB models, this is not it.  Loud, & Deep tone with great sustain.   Its a deep body 00, with an amazing Sitka Spruce Top, very nice Mahogany back/sides, scalloped braces, and is a 14 fret slot head!   There is currently only one of these for sale on the internet for twice the price, and the "DM" only model is extremely hard to come by.   This guitar has been played some, so it does show a few small flaws here and there (see pics).  There are some light signs of use like minor pick scratching, extremely minor fret wear, and a light ding or scratch here or there that would be hard to picture (see pics).   The most significant flaw is a chip in the clear coat on the back of the neck, and a small spot from sitting in a guitar stand.   There are NO cracks, breaks, repairs, or damage!  This guitar is set up excellent as it sits, with its full, original, untouched saddle (see pics).  The string height is just shy of 1/8" at the body, and the neck is straight (see pics).   The bridge and top are tight and flat.  All inside braces are tight with no signs of repairs.  This guitar is all original and repair free.

 Lots of pics, so when you receive it, its exactly what you expected, if not better.  NO surprises with this sale..  Buy with confidence!


Please review all pics for the true cosmetic condition after reading this description.

This RARE USA Martin looks, sounds and plays great!   Although I think its set up great, everyone has their own preferences.  If your not happy with its set up, it will be your responsibility and cost to have it set up to your liking..  


The Original Hard Shell Case is also in good very condition.   It will show signs of use as you would expect of a used case.  All latches and hinges operate properly. 

Everything operates as it should, and has never had, nor does it have any, breaks, or repairs.

Make sure you scroll down for all of the pics, and ask questions if you have any concerns before buying.
