It really sings and is fantastic for finger-style and/or singer songwriters with a softer/quieter voice. It's been a really hard decision to sell as I've owned it for a long time. It records particularly well as the bottom end is quite weak and therefore has it's own natural low-end shelf (so no boomy bottom end). The Mids and High end sound amazing, especially with just a voice and guitar. The overtones and harmonics are to die for.
It's seen some action so there are a few dings that it's accumulated over the years, but it's been well looked after. Apparently the story goes that these models were Martin's first attempt to enter a lower price bracket, they were made in the USA at the Nazareth Factory from Martin tone wood stock that was sent to Japan to be worked and then sent back to the USA to be assembled. It has some lovely features like the Torch inlay, the binding and the back inlay. The Tuners are particularly good and it comes with an under saddle Piezo/Jack and hard case with key.
It has a Spruce Top, Rosewood Back and Sides, Mahogany neck, Twenty fret Rosewood fingerboard, ebony bridge and tortoiseshell pickguard. As I mentioned, the tone wood is the same as was being used for Martin's USA manufacture at the time. Amongst people who used these guitars were Andy Fairweather-Low from Eric Clapton's band.
