This consignment instrument is in very good cosmetic condition with some typical picking and playing marks. But there are NO cracks and NO repairs that we can find. A truly fine specimen of a vintage Martin D-35.
All binding is intact and in great shape. The neck angle is good and we don't believe there is any immediate need for a reset. Not a lot of saddle height left, so the next owner may want to do a reset, but it plays very well up the neck for now. Frets are in very good shape and may have been recently dressed as they are smooth and mostly free of grooves.
The sound? Simply HUGE! Bass is very strong and pronounced. High end is also quite good with fine balance. One of the best-sounding guitars we have in the shop.
Case appears to be original and is in very good shape.
