(Serial No. 92795) Excellent condition. Great sounding and
playing small body guitar. Adirondack spruce top with unscalloped
braces, mahogany back and sides, Brazilian rosewood fingerboard
and bridge - whats not to like? All the good stuff coming to you
in a small couch friendly package. Very well balanced guitar with
a big open woody sound and strong volume. It would be a fabulous
recording guitar. Has the standard 1-11/16 nut. Peghead overlay
and fingerboard are Brazilian rosewood with gold Martin script
logo. The neck was just reset by luthier Ward Elliott so the action is low with plenty of saddle. There is a repaired area on the lower side that is probably a jack hole repair. Bridge plate is original with the holes plugged and redrilled professionally. Tuners have
been changed for nickel open back Grovers as used on Martin small
bodies from the 1960s. Has an ebony truss rod so its light and
responsive. Wartime peghead has no tuner bushings as built. Shows
player wear with the usual nicks, dings and pickwear. The top has
turned a nice orange. Neck is straight, frets were just
dressed and crowned. Strap button added at the heel. Comes with a newer hard shell case.
