It has a Mortice/Tenon neck joint. The bracing is a hybrid D1 scalloped x bracing which provides a wonderfully full and balanced tone and plenty of hog punch when needed. The nut width is 1 11/16 The neck is a dream to play and is smooth and fast.
I had it professionally set up and serviced for this sale. The frets are perfect having been levelled and polished and the action is approx 2.75mm at the 12th fret. I had the original saddle replaced with a new tusq one and upgraded the bridge pins to Waverley snakewood ones.(Original saddle and bridge pins included in the sale). It is a fantastic guitar to play and you don't want to put it down. It is very responsive and at home strumming or fingerpicking. It is a reluctant sale. It comes with the original Martin TKL fitted hard case and truss rod adjustment tool.
Cosmetically it is pretty good overall, although there are a couple of small marks in the top of the soundboard and one small scratch on the side and a couple of marks on the finish on the tail end of the guitar. I have tried to capture these as best as possible on my photos.
These blemishes have no impact on the structure or tone of the guitar. Study the photos and come and try it. You are welcome and infact encouraged to come and try the guitar.Any question do not hesitate to ask. Check my feedback it is 100% with very positive comments.
