(On Consignment - rebuild strongly recommended)

It's not a complete "looker" but I have some very high expectations that that means it will be a great "player"; as tends to be the case -- ugly ones play better. It is missing rear guard post (on the tube) and I expect to find an exact replacement; neckstrap ring reversed from wear(wearing again) that we can discuss options. It is a tricky relac that had me thinking twice because the engraving was well protected. So I suspect it's a factory job.

Matching neck serial #.

Rebuild included with price.

CASE: yes. old martin original.
