Description

SN 25367: Very fine example of one of Martin’s long running models in production since before the Civil War. The model has been “modernized” over the years with 1926 being the first year where many were braced for steel strings. It was Martin’s least expensive rosewood guitar and they remain relative vintage bargains today (compared with the 28 series). The top is choice Adirondack spruce, the back and sides book matched rosewood. The back center strip is a simple back and white herringbone. Binding is rosewood and the rosette repeats the herringbone motif. The bridge and fingerboard are ebony with snowflake inlays at the 5th, 7th, and 9th fret. There are 12-frets clear of the neck, slotted headstock, stamped logo on the back of the headstock. Maintenance includes neck reset and new frets by Alan Perlman along with a forgery quality pyramid bridge of the exact dimensions with compensated saddle. There is a small barely noticeable shim under the fingerboard tongue. The bridge plate is original. The nut is 1 7/8 tapered to 1 13/16ths where is meets the fretboard. String spacing at the bridge is 2 7/16ths inches. It’s the veritable finger picker’s delight. Many of these small Martins have the “little dog big bark” syndrome and this one has it in spades. It rings forever and has an abundance of clarity through all the ranges. The condition is excellent with only a bit of button wear on the back and some finish wear on the front from resting the fingers. No cracks. Comes with a nice, modern hardshell case.
