    My Style 1 serial number is 15558. Don't think they are sequential as there is a difference of 269. It is really only 100 of them? Now I have my doubts!!!

    All my Martins are far closer in age to the beginning. Love that old mahogany.

    Since they are an S1 with a different sticker it could be that they chose 100 of the nicest from the "normal" S1 production run - who knows....

    Saw one of these for sale (Model 1) at Groth Music in Bloomington, MN. Asking $468.

    It seemed to have a finish stain on the front. I just bought my used non-centennial S1, so I am not in the market (and also want to upgrade the Grover tuners to UPT tuners in the near future). Love the sound and smell, though.

    Groth has a vintage 1907 guitar on display as well (priced at $5000, I think).
