Description

This guitar was purchased from us in 2008 and is a monster.  The guitar has been extremely well cared for and looks like new.  The guitar was built with the “Vintage Now” neck profile which has slightly wider spacing at the saddle (2 5/16″) with 1 3/4″ at the nut. This neck is slightly larger than the standard (non-vintage) profile, but is not quite as large as some of the chunkiest vintage Martin necks. This neck has more of a vintage feel, but is more palatable than our standard Vintage neck (see below) to a lot of players. The neck shape is slightly rounder (less V) in the lower position and moves towards a modified V shape as you go up the neck. The neck depth (including the fingerboard) is typically .845″ at the 1st fret and .960″ at the 9th fret. The fingerboard width measures 2.195″ at the 12th fret.
