Lovies Guitars is Excited to offer up this Martin HD-40 Tom Petty Signature Acoustic Dreadnaught Guitar! The Tom Petty Signature Guitar is a lovely instrument with beautiful pearl inlays and an ivoroid-bound ebony fingerboard. “Full Moon Fever” position markers inlaid in combinations of black mother of pearl, silver awabi pearl and brilliant blue paua pearl that follow the phases of the moon: new moon at the 1st fret, quarter moon with small star at the 3rd fret, half moon with small star at the 5th fret, three-quarter moon with small star at the 7th fret, full moon with small star at the 9th fret, three stars at the 12th fret and single stars at the 15th and 17th frets. Petty’s signature is inlaid in pale gold agoya pearl between the 19th and 20th frets.
The polished black ebony headplate has a select abalone pearl rendition of Martin’s “alternative torch” inlay, a rare pattern that originated with one of the first Martin 00-45s in 1902. Italian alpine spruce top, prized for rich, powerful tone, is matched to carefully scalloped Sitka spruce braces. Back and sides are crafted from handsome East Indian rosewood. The low profile neck is carved from genuine mahogany. Both the HD-40TP and HD12-40TP Tom Petty Signature Editions are equipped with factory installed Fishman Gold + Plus Natural II electronics. The HD-40TP Tom Petty Signature Edition Guitar bears an interior label personally signed by Tom Petty and Martin Chairman C.F. Martin IV and is number 33 of 274 ever to be made! In Good Condition with a 4” wood crack on the top, a 2” finish crack, a crack on either side of the output jack(may just be a finish crack), pretty minty otherwise with just a few light marks, frets 99%, played little, 7.5/10.
