  • 2003 Martin D-50 Deluxe Brazilian - A Real Showstopper

    We are very excited to announce the arrival of this extremely rare Martin Limited Edition D-50 at Dream Guitars featuring both Brazilian Rosewood and Bearclaw Sitka Spruce.

    This 2003 Martin Limited Edition D-50 is number 2 of only 50 made and is as much an art object as an instrument. Not withstanding its amazing appointments, this baby sounds amazing. Lush, tight basses are easily coaxed from this beauty, along with well defined mids and trebles with just the right chime and sparkle.

    Price: $39,995

    I'm sittin' here trying to think of something nice to say about it. Stay tuned.......

    Three Dreads......2 Martins and 1 YamahaA fiddle, a mando, a uke, eight harmonicas, a Zoom H2, a Panasonic recorder, coupla penny whistles, an Italian made Titano accordion, three handguns, at least a dozen chess sets, more power tools than Bob Vila, and one old Westclox "Big Ben" wind-up alarm clock that still works! Oh, BTW, I forgot to mention my ocarina and maracas.

      Only 40K?  What a deal.

      That's pretty fancy...love the inlays on the neck and the BRW is beautiful!

      That'd be a nice guitar for televised appearences, but I'd be afraid to use it in a typical C&W bar (too good a chance of it being damaged by a drunk).

      DEFINITELY a real showstopper. Pity there isn't a 17" jumbo version (a Martin J-50?)

      I've already decided - took me 2 seconds - and I feel very queezy.

    Nice guitar... but every single one of your seven posts on Harmony Central has been retail spam - in direct violation of our site rules.


    This will be your last one - Goodbye.

      Spam notwithstanding, I must say that I like some of that inlay, especially the "leaves" around the end pin and on either side of the center strip on the back. 

      As a former student of the visual arts though I see this as being overly decorative as in the style of French Rococo.

      Looks like an oyster threw up on the fingerboard.

      After a certain point it just looks a little too much like it belongs in Liberace's boudoir.

      Personally I'd prefer a little less pearl and a little better wood. That wood is nice but not quartersawn.

      Better Brazilian rosewood is available on Ebay. If they couldn't go with that, African Blackwood would be killer.

       

      Hold the pearl....but for $40,000 maybe use wood like THIS

      No - thanks to you folks for letting us know about it.


      We really do appreciate it when you guys let us know about spam; with you all serving as extra eyes, it helps us spot it and deal with it faster. After all, we can't be everywhere at once, or read every post as it goes up...

    Damn! Even Freeman Keller called it as spam. I am duly impressed.

     

    I had more respect for Dream Guitars too. And yep, that thing is butt ugly.

      Personally, I'd rather spend the 40 large on a BMW. Spending this much on a guitar, I'd be scared to play it, and I'm certainly not going that far in hock for a showpiece. Just my $.02.

      Hey everyone, Dream Guitars here. We messed up here. We blatantly missed the terms of this forum. It's on us. We do not want to be spammy as we hate that very much ourselves. We do love posting about our instruments but do not like breaking forum rules. Again our apologies to everyone.
