The ABC Trust is proud to auction off this one-off Martin D-28 Marquis inlayed with the Celebration of Led Zeppelin's 40th anniversary in mind by one of Martin's most talented inlay artist Tracy Cox in coordination with JR Warner, Paul Hammond, Dick Boak and Christopher Thomas.

This unique guitar was constructed be Martin Guitar company (Custom Shop) and commissioned by our Affiliate From the USA, JR Warner, who has commissioned and built guitars for Jimmy Page and Brian May for their own collections.

Crafted to evoke the same powerful tone and sonorous projection as a pre-WWII D-28, the Martin D-28 Marquis Acoustic Guitar differs only by using the much less scarce, and therefore more affordable, Indian rosewood instead of Brazilian rosewood.

Hammond and Warner left for London on Dec. 3, 2007, and presented the guitar to ABC Trust CEO Andrew Webb in Soho a few days later.
