Martin (used, 2007) DC Aura Acoustic Electric

Tag No 32-4164 Used

#1257649, with molded hard shell case.

The Martin DC-Aura is a lush and lovely instrument with many elegant appointments.  It is, for example, equipped from the factory with the Fishman Aura – an electronic device that not only provides the user a high-fidelity transduction of the acoustic sound of the instrument into an amplifiable signal, but can also, in the hands of a master, be used to communicate with the spirits of recently departed pets and farm animals. Fishman is working on a more sophisticated version that will permit walkie-talkie-like conversations (complete with squawk) with, not the owner’s ancestors exactly, but the ancestors of the employees of the Fishman Company most of whom spoke Latvian.  That’s all they’ve been able to come up with so far in their research labs, but considering that all they were able to conjure up before were actual Labs this, it is felt, will be a radical improvement.   The DC Aura is a fourteen-fret dreadnought made with a Mortise and Tenon neck joint, out of solid Sitka spruce and Solid East Indian rosewood.  It has hybrid X-bracing, white Boltaron binding, abalone top inlay, a select hardwood neck with a modified low oval shape, a White Corian nut and a white Tusq saddle with a 16” radius.  Since we are waxing statistical, the scale length is 25.4”, the nut width is 1 11/16th”, or 2 1/8th” at the 12th fret with identical bridge string spacing.  Its headplate is solid black ebony and bears the “C F Martin” script logo in mother of pearl.  Dramatically, and to metaphorically represent the continuum of life surrounding a hollow black center (i.e., the unknown) the fingerboard inlays are hexagon outlines in pearl;  top back and sides are finished in polished gloss while the neck is satin with a polished headplate much like our own.  The interior hosts a paper label and 5/16” solid Sitka spruce braces, an adjustable truss rod and cedar kerfings whose aromatic fragrance gives at least two of us the will to live.

Our Price is $2,500.00.
