Seial number 88780 was stamped on August 22, 1944 and cleared final inspection on November 18 that year.
This guitar retains the scalloped braces that define pre-war Martins (the transition to straight braces occurred in December 1944).
The tuners are probably Kluson 502 machines. It will be noted the bushings are missing from the front of the headstock as a result of war-time metal restrictions.
Back and sides: Mahogany
Top: Adirondack spruce
