If that Martin rosewood Dreadnought sound is what you prefer when you pick up a 12-string, this is a solid example with great playability as well as great tone and volume. Playability issues have haunted these models since they were introduced,but this one has already had a professional neck reset and refret so it plays like a new guitar. There are no cracks anywhere and the only part that's been changed is a replaced pickguard, as the original curled up so it now has a new Martin 'guard. Finish is original throughout and there's only light wear from use. Two things we should mention are that there's some finish dings around the bridge from when it was reglued, and finish scrapes to the top along the edge of the binding about where the player's right arm goes over the edge. Note that there are some cracks in the fingerboard binding around the side position dots, plus one crack to the binding on the treble side at the 1st fret.
Case is the original black hardshell, the covering has lots of wear but the case is solid and it's a good fit. (This may have been shipped from Martin originally in their blue thermoplastic case, but this black Victoria hardshell is from the same era as the guitar).
