A tour de force by Jim Merrill, of Eastern Virginia, a builder well known for his exacting and superior sounding 1930 Martin knock-offs. This one is extremely light weight with top-grade Brazilian rosewood and Adirondack spruce. It's a perfect instrument, a work of art, and stunning to behold. Beautiful super light braces and a much thinner neck than a mid thirties D-28, though full width. We are selling this incredible beast for the original owner, who treated it with extreme care, leaving it in as-new condition.
