Martin Hunphrey C1R:
Price: Sold
Used/New: Used     Condition: Excellent
Description: This rarely seen classical guitar grew out of a collaboration between C.F. Martin and master guitar builder Thomas Humphrey. It feature Mr. Humphreys special design of a tapered body combined with a ramped fingerboard that's up close to the strings for low action, while being well above the sound board for outstanding volume and tonal range.

Not many of these guitars were made, and mostly by one Martin builder, Danny Brown who is now running Guitar Makers Connection. The Humphrey design is so complex that Danny pretty much built these guitars by hand.

The C1R features 000 size Classical body with laminated Rosewood body and Solid Western Red Cedar sound board, long 25.5" scale, 2 1/16" nut, Rosewood bridge and fretboard, Humphrey lattice bracing, rose pattern mosaic rosette, and Rosewood binding. Unlike others we’ve seen for sale this one has gorgeous solid one-piece Mahogany neck a opposed to Spanish Cedar.

Condition is excellent with little sign of use, and if not for two very small dings just above the sound hole we would call it mint. Comes with original Martin case shown.
