Here we have a very impressive Exotic Tone woods Acoustic guitar this is a sweet sounding BASS BOOMER she's also electrified Hidden by a clean install Piezo pickup and the output jack is at the strap end pin no added holes in body you don't know its there but ready when you are / very nice touch.. This is a great high end classic Martin D-45 copy from 1976 Aria Matsumoku factory about 38 years back in the prime Law-suit days made back in 1976 in the midst of the Japanese Golden Era when the Japanese guitar company's really decided to step it up big time in the quality department and give the American guitar greats competition and a real run for there money as they say. Check out some of our other Aria guitars sometime they are impressively built and workmanship is as good as the big US or nicer than in the 1970's US steppend it back up in the 80's but durring the 70's.... They set out to build some of the finest quality guitars fit & finish wise and these series really stepped it up in the detail such as all the fine inlay seen classic abalone perfiling with intricate detail inlay work multi bindings and so on close attention to accuracy bringing a professional grade pro worthy instrument when new...that was nearly 40 years ago its hard to believe but time has been kind to this beauty she's not new of course she's a real vintage guitar and it has some minor nicks and doinks but none take away from its beauty or playability or its great tone. This guitar is JVG condition rated conservatively at very good used vintage condition easily 8.8/10 cosmetics tone-9/10 EZ play -9/10. The 3- piece exotic Brazzilian rosewood is as beautiful as any
vintage Martin D-35,with the wonderful 3 piece back then adding the higher end touch to the top of a D-41 or D45 just unique. The
action on this baby is nice and low, to is also Gorgeously figured Sitka Spruce with real nice color and bear claw figure this is my favorite top oh ya its a solid top and is crack free... she enjoys the classic Martin x bracing and its top isnice and flat and the bridge is nice and flat to the top paper will not pass beneath it.The neck is straight and excellent also no sign of ever cracking where meeting the body it has a good full feel- it feels great in the hands with its nice medium profile not to fat - not to thin at- 1-11/16ths nut width. The Fingerboard is rich looking Jacaranda and is in excellent condition it has Mother of pearl snow flake inlays, its frets are medium vintage and are also very good - excellent with many years left yet before a re-fret is needed.... this is my favorite neck made of high grade beautifully grained Mahogany and it has the classic Martin design Diamond Volute on back a feature of the high end vintage dreadnought often seen on the D-28 & up models from Martin. This Vintage Aria PW60 plays wonderfully and its volume is impressive combined with its EZ playing action feel make this guitar a pleasure to play and you will not want to put it down for hours...
