Martin Elderly Instruments "Shadow Band" Limited Edition Custom D Jr. 2 Sapele Guitar & Gigbag

sku: DJR2A45
In 2017, we turned 45, and Martin Guitars has been helping us celebrate that milestone. Designed in collaboration with the legendary guitar maker, this limited edition D Jr. 2 commemorates Elderly Instruments’ founding in 1972. A 4-piece “shadow band” — taken from the mural at our Lansing, Mich., store — is laser-etched into the top. Only 45 of these guitars were made, and the inside label is numbered in sequence. Martin gigbag included.
