Yes the guitar is a Gordon Lightfoot signature limited edition of only 61 ever made by Martin, a replica of Lightfoots own Martin circa 1954.

As you can imagine the guitar is made from exceptionaly high quality wood and the craftmanship is superb, all 61 are signed by Gordon Lightfoot.

This guitar in mint condition, photos are available.

I would suggest that anyone seeking more information sign up to being a member of Mudcat so they can send a PM, I don't want to get the silly day dreamers involved.

What year did they make those 61 guitars?:

Just curious ~ count me in as one of the silly daydreamers; I'm sticking with the non-mint-condition D-18 I already have.

I've gotten a "ballpark" rough-estimate appraisal of $2500 for my 1969 D-18. (It's not a firm figure because I didn't pay for an official, good-for-insurance-purposes appraisal.) I would assume that the asking price for a special signature-model D-18 would be significantly higher than that ~ ???

Hi, Sorry to hear you had to deal with a test pilot.

It seems that it is in nice shape, so no issues there. Can you advise price and where you are located in terms of shipping. If you have photos, that would be good too.

Different folk use different marketing techniques, and it's up to them I suppose, but I also walk away from shops that don't show prices - it's maybe the old "if you need to ask, then you can't afford it" syndrome.

As a GL fan I'd love to own a GL signature guitar, but having already got a £2000 guitar I doubt very much my good wife would consider it a sensible Christmas present. At the right price though - who knows?

These may be the only ones in the UK.

This is a beautiful guitar from a great maker, and is a great tribute to one of the great folk singers of our time. I am willing to pay a fair price. I have sent you a PM. I wish you good luck selling this great instrument.

I played one owned by a fellow Jack Hudson Fan and Mudcatter a few years ago, it looked and sounded the business. The little MOP image of the 'Edmund Fitzgerald' on the FB was beautiful, a real classy touch.

The above mentioned Martin guitar number 57, which I believe is only the 2nd one in the uk, had a great acoustic session on Wednesday night here in Nottingham. The second time these two great instruments numbers 57 & 58 have had the pleasure of playing together. A very rare treat!!!

I had #7 which I pre ordered and prepaid from a store in Seattle. I paid $2500 and flipped it immediately for $3500.... I needed the money. I still have my 1981 Custom N20 Which I will never part with.

For anyone who wants more information on the guitar, visit my web site and read my article on it, from back in July 2000:

Lightfoot guitar article

It's quilted mahogany with an Englemann spruce top. There are links in my story to the Martin Sounding Board article, with lots of detail, and some nice photos at Elderly.

And, if you go to my home page, and scroll down from my Massey 2008 story here, you will see a picture of mine (#22) - with it's extra, non-factory installed autograph.

PS to #57 and #58: #14 is in the UK as well, and I was told at one point that 5 were sent there, but I can't guarantee that is correct.

Thanks for the info Val. It would be interesting to meet up with #14.
Perhaps 'Catters could look out for it around the UK venues!

Um, no, John. I rarely have time to play and have pretty much given up. Maybe when (if?) I retire?

MB, (is it?), I will email #14 and see if he wants to meet up with you two.
