One owner guitar.

Typical classical guitar with slotted headstock. Brazilian Rosewood peghead overlay with Martin logo decal at top. Original open-back tuners 3-on-a-plate with large diameter barrels for the nylon strings and original cream buttons. Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard, heelcap, and bridge. Mahogany back, sides, and neck. Original nut and saddle. Very interesting high-grade Spruce top with very tight grain and lots of depth and chatoyance. Typical to “18” appointments: tortoise outer bindings with multiple white-black-white-black inside purfling on top edge and single tortoise on back. Tortoise endwedge.

This guitar is in great shape but has random touch marks from handling and playing. It needs a neck reset to be optimally playable. This is reflected in the low price. No other problems. Bridge has never been off. Original endpin. Strap button added at heel.

Wonderful sound. Comes with original chipboard case.
