70 Years old and still in great original condition! Beautiful Brazilian Rosewood Back Sides and Headstock Overlay, Honduras Mahogany Neck, "Pumpkin" Coloured Sitka Spruce Top, Ebony Fretboard and bridge. These Guitars feature a Small Maple Bridge plate, a beautiful Faux Tortoiseshell "Celluloid" Pickguard, Nickel Plated Kluson "Waffleback" tuners, Hide Glue Construction and Nitro Celluose Lacquer Finish. No Neck Reset needed, the Saddle is still quite tall enough and the action is just fine. I have been playing this guitar a lot lately and The Sound and Playability is as good as it gets for this early 50's era. Plenty of volume as well. A Classic Martin Dreadnought this one!
