This is one of the cleanest vintage Martins I have ever seen. Apart from a couple of minor scuffs it feels like it was made a few years ago. In fact it was the late 1940s. Even the original case looks like it was bought a month or two ago! It is a style 1 Martin made on solid mahogany with faux tortoiseshell binding and black/white/black purfling. It still has its original friction tuners that work perfectly smoothly and the rosewood fingerboard is in great condition.
It sounds INCREDIBLE!! Punchy, with that classic Martin bark and the warmth you get from aged mahogany. It has amazing volume. Another great thing is that the action is nicely low with no buzzing so it plays like an absolute dream. Absolutely brilliant.
