This Dreadnought feels patriotic every day of the year! Adorned with stars across the fretboard and stripes across the three-piece Indian Rosewood back and Sitka Spruce top, this Martin D-76 is number 1,855 of 1,976 guitars that Martin built in commemoration of the United States' Bicentennial, making this the guitar for the year of 1855 (the last year of the California Gold Rush).

In excellent shape, this D-76 has a rich voice that's backed up by Martin's trademark Dreadnought projection, making this a Fourth of July firecracker for Bluegrass or Old Time flatpickers, and comes with its original Martin hardshell case in a unique shade of soft blue.

1976 Martin D-76 -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Move over, all you fifes and drums: we've got a new instrument for American patriotism! This Martin has been kept out of harm's way for its entire life, but plays like a well-oiled machine (which it is: we just lemon oiled the fretboard back to its original lustre)." - Paul Heumiller

"This was a special bicentennial model that was sold in 1976. This particular guitar is in excellent condition and looks as if it has been kept at home and in the case for most of its life. The tone is nice and clear with a good strong midrange response. Great for flatpicking. " - Al Petteway
