  • Description: Up for sale is one used 1969 Martin N-10 vintage classical guitar in very good condition and perfect playing order. This is such a sweet guitar. It's super lightweight giving it incredible tonal characteristics. The top is solid Spruce with the back and sides being Mahogany. The neck is also Mahogany with a Rosewood fingerboard and Rosewood bridge. The frets are quite large and in fantastic shape and the fingerboard has no finger indentations. The frets don't appear to be the originals. The neck has a fairly flat profile with a nut width of exactly 2 3/16" and as it is, the guitar is set up perfectly. The scale length is 25 3/8". This guitar has been played a lot, but as a result, it plays and sounds incredible. The neck has quite a bit of finish that's been worn away, the main part that can be felt being on the treble-side at the 9th fret. This appears to be a spot where the guitar's owner had repeatedly leaned it against something. There are some repaired cracks in the side, and a spot on the side (bass-side) that looks like it had taken a hit and patched together as originally as possible. It's actually a good fix that you can't feel. There is also some typical finish checking on the back. You can see all of these in the photos. The guitar is fitted with a passive under-the-bridge pickup system with the input jack being the strap button. This great vintage guitar comes with a hard shell case.
