Martin Ditson Dreadnaught (Ex-Demo) #1235371

Includes Hard Case


The very first Dreadnought guitars were manufactured by Martin for the Oliver Ditson Company, a publishing firm based in Boston. Curiously enough, the guitars weren't sold with the Martin name on them, but rather were marketed in Boston and New York under the Oliver Ditson brand name, beginning in 1916. This fantastic acoustic offers a look back to those early days!
