What Reidys say...
The D17M is a welcome blast from the past. The modern version of the guitar has striking looks and sound. The body is lightly braced allowing the beautiful shaded top to really sing. The great dynamic range makes it a joy to play with fingers or a plectrum and has a striking look all of its own.
Richard Moss, Reidys Acoustic Guitar Specialist
What Martin say...
Resurrecting the look of Martin's early Style 17 guitars, the all solid-wood 17 Series features a shaded gloss Sitka Spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and tortoise brown binding. The D-17M features a booming Dreadnought body, great for banging out rockers or quiet fingerpicking.
