So many of the ‘70s Martins we see remind us of the old Henny Youngman joke: “I Just got back from a pleasure trip: I took my mother-in-law to the airport.” (Cue groans in the audience). But hey, if you’ve been playing for any length of time, you’ll probably relate. Many ‘70s Martins are the type of guitars that you won’t miss once they’re gone. But therein lies the rub—not all of the Martins from that generally dark time of Ford Pintos and Angel Flight pants are bad. Take this guitar, which is in beautiful, all-original, crack-free condition and sounds great — loud, resonant, and harmonically rich. Heck, the action is low and comfy, such that it won’t even need a neck reset anytime soon.
Ships in an original Martin “steal me” case. Sold!
