One owner,1968 Martin D-12-20 with original medium/hard shell case. I taught public school music in the 70's and this guitar traveled with me to 30 classrooms every week in five different schools. This guitar was always tuned one step lower (D) than normal E and played with a capo on the second fret. The neck, fingerboard and body connections are perfectly straight, it never has been in the shop for repair. Pic guard was replaced in the late 70's, other than that it is all original. Some wear (see pic) on the lower back from my large "hippie" belt buckle. The sound is still amazing after 48 years. I guarantee you will not find a better D-12-20 for under $4,000!  Serial #D12-20  278555.
