This is a consignor's nice old Martin. It came in yesterday, got a fret level/dress and minor setup and cleaning this afternoon, and now she's ready to head on out again. It's in superb shape with no cracks and aside from some very minor scratching, pickwear and use-wear to the treble side/back area (probably from going in and out of a case), it's very clean. There's your usual finish weatherchecking but I was totally surprised to pull this out of its case and find it looking like a 15-year-old guitar.
If you're unfamiliar with Martin 000s... they're basically the ideal guitar for "folkies" with a heavier hand as they record well and maintain clarity played in a variety of styles ranging from full-on strumming to fingerpicked intimacy. The body shape also "hugs" your knee nicely compared to a dreadnought shape, even though you've got the extra warmth and carrying power of a 15" lower bout.
