McCoury Honored With Signature Martin Guitar

During a concert at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on Thursday (July 18), Martin Guitar will present Del McCoury with his own signature series guitar, Edition D-28DM. The body is Martin’s famous dreadnought shape, made from solid Indian rosewood and bound both top and back with grained ivoroid for a vintage look. The back panels are joined in the center with zig-zag purfling, reminiscent of historic Martins. Elegant dots of blue lapis stone, each trimmed with a thin ring of pearl, symbolize McCoury’s fondness for the blues. White bridge pins are inlaid with lapis dots, highlighting the ebony, long saddle bridge. The guitar is available with McCoury’s signature in pearl between the 19th and 20th frets, upon request. 07/15/02
