Product Description

Long scale, excellent condition except for a cross grain break in the treble side. Martin converted their 000 models from long to short scale in early 1934, taking off 1/2" to lessen tension from the predominent heavy gauge strings of the period. Nowadays we have light gauge strings and can benefit from that extra bit of tension?the action can be lower, the guitar has more projection, can handle a stronger touch thus increasing its dynamic range. This 000 as a result has quite a powerful, rich tone. There's finish wear below the fingerboard and pickguard and in one spot on the back, a casebite at the armpit, minor pick scratching, and finish checking on the top The action is at 7/64" and 5/64" at the 12th fret; for lower action it would need a neck reset. All parts appear to be original.
