(2014, New-old-stock) Sweet little 14 fretter with a 24.9" scale and perfectly matched Guatemalan rosewood back and sides paired with a gorgeous torrefied Adirondack spruce top. The guitar combines a number of cosmetic appointments to create a unique package...style 42 fret board inlays, style 28 'checker' back strip, herringbone rosette, 20s/30s style multi color marquetry wood purlfing around the top, tortoise colored binding and the "CF Martin & Co" stamp on the back of the headstock. The nut width is 1 3/4" and pin spacing 2 3/16". The top bracing is scalloped. Particularly well balanced with quick response and great sustain, excellent fingerstyle guitar. Perfect set up! Comes with 5-ply hardshell case. Sound file available on request. Note that the shipping rate is set to get the guitar from the east coast (where I am) to the west coast.
