SETUP & INSPECTED BY OUR LUTHIER

Weight: 4.9lbs

Case: Hardshell Case

Year: 1965

Top Wood: Sitka Spruce

Back and Sides: Brazilian Rosewood

Cosmetic Condition:  Guitar is in very good condition for its age.  It has a good amount of finish checking on the and back.  There is an area on the back of the guitar that has some deeper scratching.  Plenty of small dings and scratches throughout the entire guitar as well.    

Tech Notes: Looks incredible for the age, a slight body deflection is normal, and it appears to have had a refret, a neck reset, and bridge reglue at some point.  There is plenty of saddle left for adjustment and the neck relief is perfectly set near flat with no adjustable truss rod, it is as good as it gets.  The action is set to medium/low (Martin spec) with 12-54 Martin 2.0 Lifespan strings.  No obvious cleats or repairs based on an internal inspection.  A small crack was repaired near the replacement pickguard (original in case not working).  A crack like this is pretty normal from a shrinking pickguard, and seems to be repaired structurally well.  Additionally, there may have been a crack on the top behind the bridge that was repaired as well, there is no flex or light that passes through it, it may be a “bad” finish crack as well, as I see nothing on the underside. Tuners appear original; however the bridge pins and saddle are both definitely replacements but high quality.  The nut may be a replacement as well, it is hard to tell, if it is a replacement it is extremely well made.  All repairs that were done to this appear to be very high quality. Black light shows no finish correction.

Nut Width: 1 11/16

12th Fret Width: 2.13”

Depth at Nut: .91”

Depth at 12th: 1.18”

Fretboard Radius: 15”

Fret Size/Shape: medium width medium height

Describe Neck Profile: slight v comfortable medium
