2018 Martin Custom 5-12fret Terz guitar was originally sold at our annual Acoustifest event by one of our employees. It is in EXCELLENT CONDITION with no cosmetic or playing issues and only a bit of wear. It is a beautiful and lovely sounding guitar that adds a unique sound to both solo and ensemble playing. Martin is no longer building custom instruments on the 15 series platform so this may be one of the few chances to get one of this style guitar.
