Shipping - add $75
Shipping reduced by $30 for PA, VA, DE, NJ and MD residents

Back was removed, braces removed, new braces installed.
Neck is excellent. Action is 4/64 at the 12th fret.
Structurally speaking, this is in excellent condition.
Neck was reset.
This is yet another in a series of great sounding large bodied brace conversions. Exceptional sound.
We pay attention to fine details. The inside back and sides are cleaned up and sanded smooth.
We chip out all of the glue globs. Braces are tapered and sanded smooth. Serial numbers (if any) are preserved.
Back braces are rounded and sanded smooth. We use a drill press and reamer to install new
solid metal bushings and modern tuners. We do what Harmony should have done 50 years ago.
- Bracing - X-pattern premium quarter sawn tapered Sitka spruce.
- Bridge - Coco Bolo.
- Nut - vintage bone
- Saddle - vintage bone
- Pins - Rosewood
- End pin - Rosewood
- Fret board binding - new abs
- Tuners - Stewmac Golden Age Restorations (2503-N)
- Frets - all new high profile
- Neck - Solid Mahogany classic C-shape like older Martin
- Top - Solid spruce
- Back and sides - solid Honduras mahogany
- Fret board - This does not look like Brazilian to me. Too dark, almost black ever after resurfacing. Maybe Coco Bolo?
- No cracks in the top.
- There is a 10 inch crack on one side. Because we remove the back, it is easy to very substantially repair all cracks. I can’t brag about the finish work over the crack,
but the entire length of the crack is almost invisible. Almost.
- Missing pick guard. You can barely see where the original was located. We removed all glue residue for a nice neat finish.
