So, what we have here is a vintage 1972 Martin D 35 including a Martin HSC. I don't believe it is the original case but it is indeed a Martin Dreadnaught HSC and it is in excellent condition and all latches and the handle work as they should.
I assume ya'll know all about these models so I won't go into any technical specs here.
As far as the condition of the guitar, I rated it very good but it could probably be rated as excellent given it's 42 or so years old. There are a few smaller dings and scratches on the soundboard which most likely will not show up in the pics. Believe me, they are not even close to show stoppers unless you happen to be a cork sniffer in the 1st degree. There are also a few smaller scratches on the back of the guitar as well. In addition, there is some soundhole wear from years of pickin' and grinnin' but again, nothing obscene. HOWEVER, no breaks, cracks or separations anywhere on the guitar. The frets are in great shape with really slight wear on the High E and B strings but you need to look pretty hard to see it. The neck angle is dead on with zero need for a neck reset. The prior owner had a new bone nut installed and it's really nice. Low E string height at the 12th fret is roughly 5/64" and there is saddle remaining if you'd like it lower but I can't possibly imagine anyone would.
Feel free to call to discuss. I won't answer texts-blame the scum bag scammers
