Give the Gift of Guitar This Holiday Season with the HD Dierks Bentley Custom Signature Edition - Bentley Up for Three 2012 CMA Nominations
NAZARETH, PA - With the holiday shopping season fast approaching, give the gift of guitar-Martin Guitar-this year! One of Martin Guitar's top 2012 custom signature artist editions is the HD Dierks Bentley, designed in collaboration with multi-platinum selling, 10-time Grammy-nominated and CMA Award winning country singer/songwriter, and Martin brand ambassador, Dierks Bentley. The HD Dierks Bentley features the classic Martin Dreadnought shape, a fitting choice as Bentley has been a Martin D-28 player for years. Bentley is also nominated for 2012 CMA Awards for Album of the Year for his chart-topping new album 'HOME,' Single of the Year and Song of the Year for "Home."
"I bought my D-28 years ago because so many of my heroes played Martins, and I would never have thought that I'd be working with Martin one day to design my own signature model," said Bentley. "Their guitars have been played by the best musicians of all time and cross all music genres, so it's still pretty unreal that they asked me to collaborate on a custom model…definitely something I can check off my bucket list!"
The HD Dierks Bentley is crafted with solid East Indian Rosewood back and sides, and a premium Adirondack spruce top, appealing to a wide range of pickers and strummers from Country to Bluegrass to Rock. Unique to Dierks' model is the patriotic bold red, white, and blue Herringbone inlay that adorns the top perimeter, rosette, and back purfling. The vintage profile neck shape has comfortably narrow string spacing, Waverly tuners, and bone nut, saddle and bridge pins for exceptional playability and tone. The black Ebony fingerboard bears a mother of pearl Phoenix bird inlayed at the 12th fret, a symbol of great significance to Dierks that pays homage to his Phoenix, AZ upbringing. Each HD Dierks Bentley Custom Signature Artist Edition bears an internal label, personally signed by Dierks Bentley and numbered in sequence without total. The retail price for the HD Dierks Bentley is $4999 and the MAP price is $3999.
