Martin D12X1 from the Jeff Loomis Collection 2009 Natural Satin Finish

Diablo Guitars is extremely proud to be making available a series of guitars from the personal collection of Seattle’s own Jeff Loomis. Jeff is best known for his incredible guitar work with Sanctuary, Nevermore and Arch Enemy. He’s also continued to create, inspire and wow both players and fans alike with his 2 stunning solo releases. His forthcoming solo release is bound to be another showcase of his remarkable playing and song craft. Jeff has decided to part ways with some of these gorgeous guitars in favor of some new acquisitions; something we can all relate to as nothing is quite as exciting as a new guitar in your hands! We’re stoked that he’s chosen to trust the team here at Diablo to find his personal guitars new and loving owners. Jeff has taken the time to autograph press shots, and include tins of 12 of his signature model picks from Dunlop which will be included with any of the guitars from his collection. These instruments were all meticulously gone through and set up to Jeff’s standards before being released for sale. All of the guitars from this unique collection are simply fantastic. A must own for any player or especially any fan of Loomis‘ amazing playing.

This Martin 12-string was actually used by Jeff Loomis on one of Nevermore’s albums “Obsidian Conspiracy on the track entitled “She Comes In Colors” and is a very cool collector’s piece for any fan of Jeff Loomis and/or the band Nevermore. You can hear the song via the provided Youtube clip!

The 12-string Martin D12X1 acoustic guitar represents a fine example Martin’s commitment to preserving the earth’s dwindling resources and designing guitars that are within reach of every aspiring guitarist. Constructed with a combination of highly compressed wood fibers (high-pressure laminate, HPL) and traditional tonewoods, the D12X1 has the famous Martin sound and playability found in their more expensive guitars.

This gorgeous Martin 12 string came to us in excellent condition with no visible scratches or dings. There is some oxidation visible on the tuning machines (see pictures above). Freshly set up with D’Addario 12 (Light) Guage 12 string strings. Includes auto graphed press shot of Jeff Loomis and a Jeff Loomis collectable pic tin. The back of the headstock has also been autographed by Jeff.
