Welcome, you are looking at a great piece.
This is the Vintage 1973 Martin USA D-12-35 Natural Acoustic Guitar.
24.6" scale. 1.90" nut width. 15 5/8" bottom bout. 4.5" deep.
.85"-1.10" 1st to 11th fret neck depth.
Martin has been making some of the world's finest instruments for over a century.
Made from only the highest quality materials and time tested craftsmanship, Martin guitars are built to last a lifetime and sound great while doing it.
This D-12-35 is a special piece- solid spruce top and East Indian rosewood back/sides.
This gives you great bottom end while allowing that 12 string sparkle to shine.
Big and beautiful.
Pick near the bridge and you enable more of the high end mids- perfect for layering tracks.
Pick closer to the neck and you engage the rosewood for some really nice depth.
There's a world of usable tones built into this beauty.
This D-12 has a comfortable soft V neck profile.
This allows you to grab those bigger chord forms and extensions. The look here is classic and beautiful- natural finish showing off the incredible rosewood grain and that fantastic 3 piece back.
Add to that the multi-ply body binding, fully bound neck, and slotted headstock and you've got the perfect Martin look.
Very good overall condition as you can see in pics- there are two hairlines- one near the pickguard and another on the bass side of the neck (pics) there is no movement in either.
The treble side tuning machines get very tight as you near pitch, but they do reach pitch.
The frets are clean- just professionally set up with action of 3/32" at the 12th fret low E, and 1/16" 12th fret high E- super low for a 12 string Martin.
This auction includes the original hardshell case in pics.
This is your chance to get your hands on a beautiful piece of Martin history- the '73 D-12-35.
