Martin C-1 Round Hole Archtop

Photo for Ad 172148

1931 Martin Archtop, round hole, Mahogany back & sides, Spruce top,
probably adirondack since that what they were using at the time.

Guitar is in nice condition, no structural issues,
there is a hairline separation in the finish on the back, not a crack just a slight
separation in the finish.

the guitar was once possibly setup as a lefty, there are matching drill marks
for the finger rest on both sides of the neck.

The tuners are not original but are open back era correct no brand name
bridge I'm sure is not original.

1/3/4" wide fingerboard at the nut, neck is straight, with slight relief
has the original bar frets.

String spacing at the bridge is 2-1/8"
string height at the 12th fret on the bass E is just under 1/8"
on the treble e is 1/16"

The case is a newer CF Martin archtop OM case, Black exterior, dark green interior

$2800.00 obo plus shipping
