These early Road Series Martins are a great sound-for-dollar bargain, thanks to the solid spruce top, a real rosewood fingerboard and bridge, plus a genuine mahogany neck. The finish is very thin, and a dead matt sheen, and that was a huge savings for Martin and allowed the low price. But the whole guitar was made in Nazareth, PA, alongside far more expensive Martins. As indicated by the lack of fret wear, this Jumbo M model just didn't see much use and the case is equally clean. Go ahead, have a friend hand you this to compare to other guitars when you have your eyes closed, your ears will not believe you can get this much Martin tone and volume for 700 bucks.
