Fabulous, feather weight guitar with an amazingly strong, deep and totally open tone. This 12-fretter has got "IT" in spades, "IT" meaning that distinctive big-bodied, pyramid bridged, no-pickguard look that says: "I'm an old timer and you ain't gonna believe what I can do." And "IT" is also the dry, crisp mahogany tone with deep piano-like bass, the kind of sound that can only come out of a big-bodied, Adirondack-topped, scalloped braced, light-as-a-feather early steel-string Martin. 12-fret 000's were Martin's largest body size until the advent of the Dreadnaught circa 1930. The 000 was the "D" of its day. Includes its valuable original hard shell case.
