Earlier this week I had to take my car to the dealership and there was a Guitar Center on the way home. I looked at a few guitars (Bedell, Breedlove, Taylor 320) but one that impressed me was a Martin D1GT. I generally don't care for low-end Martins but I'd make an exception for this one. Gloss top, as advertised, and Martin style satin back and sides, meaning about as dull as a brick. Anyway, the back and sides were very dark and I thought it was rosewood until I checked the specs. It was apparently the darkest sapelle I've ever seen.
No announcement yet.
Is there such a thing as a rosewood D1GT or are there very dark varieties of sapelle?
