For your consideration, a very, very fine example of a pre war guitar manufactured by the C.F. Martin guitar company. An outstanding representation of a classic instrument.
Martin has done an amazing job restoring this classic. The top had some cracks in it, as many guitars of his vintage do. All the cracks were narrow, and were sealed nice and tight, very smooth. The use of cleats was not needed due to the small/narrow size of the cracks. The Brazilian rosewood back and sides suffered no cracking at all, and are in great condition.
The guitar has been braced for steel strings, and is currently strung with Silk & Steel strings. We recommend keeping those type of strings on it, or using a steel string set on the lighter gauge side.
The sound of this guitar is absolutely to die for. Rich, full, and very, very well balanced,
sounds as amazing as it looks. Nice and boomy in the bass, and great definition from bass to treble.
