George Gruhn teamed up with the Ryman and C.F. Martin to create a special commemorative guitar for the Ryman. The pickguard, hexagonal fingerboard inlays and peghead overlay are cut from the Ryman's original oak church pews. A laser-cut image of the Ryman is featured on the peghead, and the label features a large photo of a view from the Ryman stage.
This guitar is more than a souvenir of one of America's official National Historic Landmarks. It also a fine sounding instrument, built on Martin's D-16RGT model, with Indian rosewood back and sides and a gloss top finish.
Each guitar in this special run is numbered. With hardshell case it is offered at $2400.
