Body: Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, Spruce Top
Neck: Mahogany neck with a medium-large “V” profile, 1 13/16” wide nut, ebony fretboard, 20” radius, and no inlays
Pickups/Hardware: Strip-style tuners, no electronics
Cosmetic Condition: This late-1800’s Martin acoustic is nothing short of jaw-dropping. The natural finish is in good shape for its age, with just some light edgewear and some faint scuffs on the top. There are two large cracks on the back of the body that have been repaired but are still visible. The neck is in good shape, as is the headstock, with just some light wear. The tuning keys have cracks in them. This 19th century acoustic is still signing loud and clear, even after all of these years.
Playability: Plays well with medium action. The guitar should only be strung with light gauge strings because of its age and light construction.
Modifications/Repairs: The two long cracks on the back have been repaired. The center seam behind the bridge has also been repaired. The binding around the top has been repaired in several spots. The tuner buttons are cracked and fragile but still functional.
Weight: 2lbs 13oz
