Description

This is an outstanding example of a budget line Martin guitar made completely from basic Mahogany but these age oh-so well over time. These small bodied 0-15’s were about $50. new but have turned out to be 1 of the best all around vintage/aged Martin Flat Tops they’ve ever produced. Its complete body has plenty of play time & pick wear having just a few tiny crackles on its 1 side. It also has a luv note scratched into the back by its 1st owner. Its 1 piece neck has a “C” shape w/a slight “V” that feels fabulous & is quite full sized. Its 2 most unique features are its “Scalloped” braces made until 1944 which make this 0-15 sing like an 80 year old should along w/its thick factory Tortoise’gard BUT she sports an ultra rare matching Tortoiseshell Headstock Veneer overlay only done between 1940-1943 to dress them up. Its also still wearing her original open back 3-on-a-side tuners w/white plastic buttons. Its out getting a neck reset in our shop as we speak & making sure its completely solid having no touchup ever over its original thin satin finish. If you want a killer sounding & perfect playing vintage small body Martin…this is it. She’s very good overall shape & comes complete w/a later black Tolex hard case.
