1985 Martin M-36 0000-Size Guitar

Martin M-size (0000, or "jumbo") guitars are on the rare side these days, but strangely-enough I see plenty of '80s ones up here in Vermont -- at least 3 or 4 in for setups each year and not the same ones. They're daily players and gigging companions for a lot of folksies who began playing "for real" in the '80s and never stopped. At least -- that's my general impression of the model!

This one was in for a K&K pickup install but it also got a glorified setup as well, getting its frets leveled and dressed and saddle taken-down a bunch. It's playing bang-on at the moment and has a full, throaty, and delicious sound.
