Vtg 1970s Martin D-35 Acoustic Guitar One Owner + Case + Receipt EXC++ NO RES!

This listing is for a gorgeous 1970s Martin D-35 being sold by the original owner. It comes comes from a smoke-free home with the original receipt, Martin original owner's cards, and hardshell Martin case (with keys). Based on our research of the serial number (379723), the guitar was made in 1976. The D-35 is a classic Martin dreadnought that is still available today. New ones retail for about $2,500.00. This particular guitar is in excellent to near mint condition and looks like it was played very little. The neck is straight, the action is low (about 1/8" at the 12th fret), and the tone is fantastic. The frets show hardly any wear and there are only a few light scuffs on the pick guard. There are a few light scuffs and dings on the body that are only noticeable in certain light. There is also a hairline crack that extends out about an inch or two from either side of the lower pickguard (see photos below). The case has some whitish discoloration on the outside in a few spots. We have a very low opening bid, and no reserve price, so don't miss your chance to win!

The D-35 was introduced in 1965 in response to a shortage of Brazilian rosewood stock large enough to finish 2-piece Dreadnought-sized backs. The resultant three-piece back - triangular center wedge and matching outer wings follows a centuries-old tradition among European and Spanish luthiers of building multi-piece backs. Martin's three-piece back design is especially striking. Extra wide bindings, bound ebony fingerboard and ebony bridge add to the distinctiveness of this model; but the appeal of the D-35 is more than just visual. Tonally, the three-piece back produces a particularly strong bass, making the D-35 ideal for rhythm playing. To accentuate the treble, Martin uses lighter 1/4" top braces which give the D-35 its characteristic warmth and balance.
