A lovely, classic 1957 Martin 0-15 for you! All solid mahogany construction, rosewood fretboard and bridge, bone saddle, ebony nut. We measure the nut width at just shy of 1-11/16" (1-21/32"), scale length is 24-7/8". The original tuners function well and fret wear is light. Well balanced sound with plenty of bottom/lower mid for a small body guitar. The condition is quite good for a 64 years old! We have done our best to portray this instrument very accurately in our pictures so please look at them closely. Light dings and scratches, short, stable hairline cracks running from the bass and treble ends of the fingerboard to the sound hole. There is a tight, sealed crack below the bridge on the bass side. This guitar has the quite common "Martin pick guard effect" meaning there is a slight depression under the pick guard (because back in the day Martin did not apply finish under the pick guard). Great neck angle, with 1/8" saddle above the bridge. Set up in our shop with action at the 12th fret of 7/64' low E, 5/64" high E (Martin specs). Serial number is 157288. Comes with a simple (and possibly original) chipboard case. We sell hardshell cases and could add one to this sale (separate transaction) if you desire.
