I was out banking Saturday and stopped by the local Guitar Center just for kicks. I played a bunch of acoustic guitars and one Martin stuck out from the rest and spoke to me. I can't find anything about it online, the Martin site, the GC site nothing.

It was a dread, no cutaway, spruce top, Sapele back and sides, with Fishman Aura VT Enhance electronics. It was tagged at $1599. The tag said Martin D SPC. Maybe it's a GC specific model. The staff had no clue.

I loved it. Clear, powerful, nice string separation and it was set up nicely. I played a '58 D18 they had used/vintage, a current D28 and a Taylor 814ce Dlx V-brace.

The Martin was just wonderful acoustically or plugged in. I'm thinking of putting it on layaway tonight.

I liked the Taylor V-braced 814ce. I need to take my '07 814ce down there for a comparison.

Has anyone else seen this model Martin dreadnaught?

I recall a Guitar Center/Musician's Friend Martin Dread from years back, but I believe it was the MMV. I recall digging it and it's price tag.
