I was given a new Mountain M38 in 1989. It was purchased in San Diego, probably at Guitar Trader. It looks like a Martin D18. Solid spruce top, probably laminate mahogany sides/back and mahogany neck. The headstock lettering is basic, not the flowery "CF Martin" copy from the models in the 1970s. I believe these were produced in Korea and lots of them were imported through San Diego in the late 1980s. I've played this guitar quite a bit through the years, usually as my beater. It has some dings in the finish, but otherwise it has held up really well. I recently replaced the tuning heads, nut, saddle and bridge pins, and I set up the action properly. It now plays great and has a really nice boomy and mellow tone. Great for fingerpicking and aggressive flat picking. I've never seen another Mountain guitar in person.
