You are looking at a Martin Limited Edition D-21 Special Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar, serial number 2142706. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

Limited to only 300 instruments, the Martin Limited Edition D-21 Special is a rosewood-rich model with powerful, deep Martin tone and unparalleled comfort & playability thanks to its contemporary neck profile. It bears traditional, understated appointments that provide a simple, yet elegant vibe. If you're a guitarist who wants a professional-quality steel string with plenty of sonic horsepower, incredible playability, and that unmistakable Martin vibe.

A Rosewood-Rich Acoustic
There are plenty of Martin Dreadnought models that are crafted using East Indian rosewood back & sides, all of which offer amazing tonal depth and richness. This D-21 Special produces that same fantastic sound, but what really stands out on this model is the fact that the fretboard and the bridge are also fashioned from East Indian rosewood. This is something you don't typically see on a Martin, which makes it a truly special instrument!

Fantastic Playing Feel
For the D-21 Special, Martin decided to go with a more modern feel. The modified low oval neck wears a smooth satin finish, and is enhanced with Martin's exclusive High Performance taper, allowing for superb comfort and playability across the entire neck. It also boasts a 25.4" scale length and a cozy 1-3/4" width at the bone nut.

Less is More
If you're a no-frills type of player, you'll really appreciate the aesthetic simplicity of the D-21 Special. From the black binding and pickguard to the Style 28 appointments including dot fretboard inlays, this Dreadnought is sure to please.
