Product Description

Here is a very sweet, small-is-beautiful half-a-century-old Martin in great condition. The true name for this size is "Terz Guitar" which means it's meant to be tuned a third higher, though the real interval is a minor third. In other words, it is tuned to G, three frets higher than E. It's original intention was to be used as the high voice in guitar duets, and it excels immensely in this role - it's an incredible lead voice, cutting sweetly through all the clutter of instruments below it. Production of this model goes back well into the 19th Century. Included is the original and very cute hard shell case.
