No beauty queen here, but if you are looking for an affordable vintage nylon string look no further. Plenty of scars on this old guitar...the top has multiple crack repairs (13 in all...all well repaired, tight/level/stable), likely the result of having gotten really really dry at some point. The back also has several small hairline cracks that are also well repaired. All of the interior bracing is original, secure and intact. The original finish shows typical dings and nicks from 50 years of play and handling but nothing significant, the cracks are the worst of what happened to this guitar. Everything is original...finish, tuners, bridge, etc. The frets are in good shape, the fret board shows minor wear but no big divots. The back of the neck is clean, no significant wear to the finish. There is a plugged hole in the heel where once there had been a strap pin installed. The neck angle is perfect and the action is very comfortable with very good saddle height, enough to lower the action if desired. Sound file available on request. How often do you find a pre-1970 Martin guitar for under $1000? This great little porch picker won't last. The guitar comes with what appears to be the original hardshell case. $850
