Hey guitar players! Ever wonder how to get a '40's sounding Martin without breaking the bank? Look no farther, here's your answer!! Here we have a 1977 D19(First Year for this model!) in stunning condition! Has the awesome "Nutmeg" top stain, mahogany back and sides, 28 style top binding, and it has been re-voiced by me, meaning scalloped braces. I have done many 1970's D28's and D18's, and they all end up sounding like a good 1940's scalloped Martins when I am done, and this one is no exception! Listen for yourself! As for condition? 9+. NO FINISH CRAZING/Checking AT ALL!! This guitar is as close to dead mint as you will get. Minimal fret wear, original bridge, pickgaurd re-placed with tortoise type. The original black pickgaurd was shrinking a bit, but will come with the guitar, as well as the original Grover tuning machines( I hate those, but they are the originals!). I replaced them with Waverly's, and also the saddle is now the old style Thru saddle. Has Tusq white with black dot bridge pins, original Martin black pins will come with the guitar as well. Comes in a newer hardshell case. You won't find a Martin that comes close to this for triple the money, period! Price a 1940's D18 and then listen to it and then this guitar at this price!!!! 35 years of aging on this one already has cured the wood perfectly! Sound sample in My Music. Please excuse the picking, I'm not a guitar player!
