It is a model that has the goodness of both by incorporating the know-how gained as an acoustic guitar maker after that into the nylon string specification. And this is one made in 1950, where the finest materials were used that are unthinkable in modern times. The top of the body is made of fine straight-grained spruce (probably Adirondack spruce), and the sides and back are made of Brazilian rosewood (jacaranda) with a light color but distinct grain. Based on the manufacturing year, the depth of the winter grain, and the distance between the eyes, the top material seems to be Adirondack spruce. It is a good material that shines golden with natural oil, and it is played well and shows a gorgeous reaction.Even nylon strings with gentle tension have a firm outline, and the light sound produced over time is comfortable. At that time, the side and back materials of the Jacaranda were not yet in the midst of the depletion problem, and the luxurious parts were used. High-quality materials with "strength, flexibility, and appearance" are used, from the center to straight grain? Jacaranda wood, which has long been a must-have material for classical guitars, expresses the sweet sound of nylon in a glossy manner. The clear sound of the Adirondack material is spread out by the highly distant Jacaranda. If you play it against the wall of the room, you can feel the tone that envelops you, rather than bounces back.
You can enjoy the balance. The 12th fret joint, slotted head, and a nut width of about 49mm, the neck shape has been improved to be slightly slimmer and easier to grip than a typical classical guitar. The position mark on the fingerboard side is also easy to handle for acoustic guitar playing. It is a part of Martin's commitment to want you to use it like an acoustic. The overall sound is a mature and dry sound that is typical of vintage 70 years old, with a slightly distinctive midrange that is pleasant and expressive that is faithful to the strength of your picking.
If it were manufactured with the same grade material today, it would easily cost more than 1 million yen. It is a rare vintage item that allows you to experience the tasteful and withered sound. [Condition] A piece full of vintage feeling that has been produced for over 70 years. There are many scratches and dents, and the body top is heavily weather-checked for a dignified look. There is a crack repair mark of about 3 cm on the side material on the 6th string side and about 1 cm on the bottom of the back material (there is no anti-crack patch), and the side and back materials are over-lacquered.The nut and saddle have been replaced, and there is a refret history. You can see the after of re-sticking or crimping on the bridge. There are some cracks on the peg button, but there is no problem with normal use of the peg. The neck is naturally curved, and the string height is about 3.3mm on the 6th string side and about 3.2mm on the 1st string side on 12F. The saddle has been completely shaved and there is almost no remainder, so only fine adjustment is possible. The playing condition is very good, and it is one that you can use for a long time.
