She's pretty nice... For sure it is an collection item. Don't even wonder about the price of this beauty. It's an piece of Art...

Inlays are amazing.

If I get this one, it will be in an window bullet proof case :smile:

Bahhh after maybe she turn out to be my beater guitar, for playing around an camp fire...

Well it certainly is stunning, in an Over the top kind of way. Can't say I blame them as it's a milestone for sure... Me? I really like the case in the background.

'Autruche' is 'ostrich' in English...and it's from Africa, not Australia. The large flightless bird from Australia that you're thinking about is the 'emu'.


But, hey, you're English is still pretty good. Keep on reading and posting. It will only get better.

Too much for me... so much decorative stuff it's baroque... like it's from some forgotten guilded age out of antiquity.

Too effete for my tastes, too. I'd feel like a sissy playing it. I'd also be afraid to even touch it!

Good on Martin for making that milestone, though... it's quite an achievement any way you slice it.

Yeah, I don't think this was made for playing. I bet they'll display it somewhere at their headquarters or donate it to some museum for the exposure and the tax break.

One thing...I call BS on this one. Unless they've been incredibly anal with keeping their records over the last 150 years or so, I doubt they could ever know for sure it's the millionth guitar they've made under the Martin name. Besides, their Sigma division alone has probably produced close to one million guitars since the 70s, if not more.
