This silver plated vintage Martin is a great instrument. Built between 1925 and 1926 it is a direct ancestor to the famed Martin Committee. Completely restored this has a bright sound and is easy to play. The tuning slide as a stop in order to use this in Bb or A. Using the A setup makes it easy to play with guitarists that insist on playing in keys like E or A (putting you in F or Bb!).
