A drop dead gorgeous TMB - original lacquer at 98% and a well loved baritone. You don't see vintage horns like this that often. Mid 1950s Martin baritone to low Bb. Serial #187k matches neck and body. We will let the pictures do the talking.

CASE: ($1,000.00 flight case) a high-end, Bam Hightech case (Bb/A versatile) that is in good condition - only the wheels are worn out; the latches function perfectly but simply need aligned when closing the case. More info here: BAM case at Guitar Center

PADS: rebuilt but a top USA shop/tech with tan pads and flat metal resos with rivet. Estimate: rebuild was done in 2016; has about 1 year of playing time on it.
