Cosmetic Condition: Super cool vintage vibe & fairly clean for a 40 year old guitar. It has been professionally set up by us with low action so it plays great! The guitar shows off a beautiful patina & delivers a rich, robust tone with excellent sustain. Cosmetically it's in good shape overall with various minor nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches & light finish checking.
Neck: Very comfortable mahogany neck with nicely aged cream binding & black side-dots. Ebony fingerboard with pearloid dot inlays. Frets are in great shape with hardly any wear. The neck was professionally reset before we acquired the guitar & plays great up & down the fretboard. Grover Rotomatic tuners are in perfect working condition. Unoriginal nut - 1 11/16" width; 25 1/2" scale length. Neck is straight & has an unoriginal strap button in the heel.
Body: Multi-bound dreadnought body with solid spruce top. Unoriginal ebony bridge, saddle & tortoise pickguard. Solid rosewood back & sides with 3-piece back. The guitar has a small dowel in the bottom treble side from a previous input jack. The end pin is a 1/4" input jack, but there is currently no pickup in the guitar.
Case: Newer Martin hardshell case included.
