This guitar is a reproduction of the Ditson concert size guitar made by C.F. Martin in the late teens/early 20s. Martin made several sizes and styles for Diston, this guitar is based on the middle size and built equivalent to style 28 specs. The back and sides are solid Brazilian rosewood, the top solid Sitka spruce, the neck solid mahogany and the fret board and pyramid bridge are ebony. Size wise the guitar has the lower bout dimension of 12 13/16" (just slightly smaller than an 0 size), but the body length of 19", which is equivalent to the length of a 00 12 fret body. The scale length is 24.9", nut width is 1 7/8" and the pin spacing is 2 5/16". The neck profile has a soft V shape typical of Martin necks from the 1920s. The top is braced with traditional X pattern, the braces are tapered, not scalloped. Action is set for fingerstyle at 6/64" and 5/64" with plenty of saddle showing. The guitar has excellent volume and balanced tone, an excellent fingerstyle instrument. Comes with a hardshell case.
