Diastone acoustic



Diastone acoustic

I was hoping someone would have some information on the Diastone acoustics. My buddy picked up one off ebay a while ago and it sounds great to me. 1970's mij Martin copy was all I could find in my research. He has a model SF 118. Sticker inside says solid top folk guitar. I have never seen one before. Any info?

My friend Jack these are rare instruments. Info is hard to come by. From conversations I have had with retailer friends these are connected to the Takamine / Martin guitars. After the deal fell through Diastone continued to make a limited number of these great Martin copies. From what I've been told they where made from the same specs and materials as the Martins. I own an SF-118 as well. I have had it for over 20 years. I have had a number of guitars over the years but have always held on to this one. Just like a Martin D-18.
