NAME: Warhorse. A "warhorse" player with battle wounds.
The Martin Baritones are loved for tone - words people use to describe: power, depth, core, punch, bite, bark. They have a special tone.
Nice darker, original lacquer color, "warhorse" player. Lots of dents and wear. Rear tube dent, neck curl brace to braze, flat Bow, missing C#upper post, thumbrest not Martin, 3x tonehole resolders, 1x super glued to repairs.
Neck is the #184,183", so it is older at 1953.
Rebuild included with price. If it wasn't savable or worth saving, we wouldn't be listing this as such. I already foresee this bari honking out some tunes in the evening and fighting the next battle.
CASE: ***case has changed since arrival. The original case is photoed. And I have paired it with a better quality original Martin case. (You can see it below with the prior martin inside.)
