Martin D16A

THIS MODEL HAS A SPRUCE TOP WITH ASH BACK ANS SIDES. ONLY 818 WERE PRODUCED.

I have a 1990

Curious where you learned that 818 of these were only produced 87-88? I have a '90 (serial 494900) with spruce top, ash back and sides. Beautiful guitar.

Production run

I emailed Martin last week and they confirmed the production run was 818. They only made the real D-16a for one year. That's what Martin told me in reply.
