MARTIN, D-21, 1967, nice orange top with big grain and no cracks - the mark on the treble side is a deep scratch (not a crack), Brazilian rosewood back and sides with no cracks, Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, headplate and full thickness bridge. This is a great sounding guitar with has had a bundle of old work (though we do not know by whom). The finish of the back and sides have been steel wooled or lightly sanded and perhaps spritzed with something. The guitar has had a neck reset with a fingerboard shim and the action is good. There is a filled strap button hole in the heel cap and a strap button present in the heel of the neck, and the gold plated enclosed Schaller tuners are an update. The top has a large rosewood bridge plate and a modern Tor-tis guard which certainly looks better than the original black one! Oh, and there is a repaired stable crack across the bottom of the headstock. Sounds like a lot, but this is a great sounding guitar. Especially nice for flatpicking with a nice crisp top end and plenty of bass response. Action is quite low and could indeed use a higher saddle.
