I noticed that Tommy Smothers played a sunburst Martin. Which Martin was, or is, that?

They're relatively rare. An acquaintance of mine has the only one I ever noticed, which prompted me to ask about 'em on this forum a couple of months back.

Someone answered, citing model numbers and years, etc. ~ there is a 2005 Mudcat thread about this if you can find it...

When I toured the Martin plant in Nazareth, PA in fall of 2003, I met a lady from New York who was picking up her brand new "Sunburst" painted J-40 model Martin. Since I play a J-40 myself, she kindly let me look at it while she strummed it a couple times. It was quite pretty both in looks and sound. I wonder why she wouldn't let me hold it? Hmmm.

Tommy used to play a Guild.
I've seen three sunburst Martins but they are very rare.

Tommy did play a Guild, but he also played a Martin.

(I thought it was sunburst.)
