Sonic Evaluation

This Perry Bechtel is very warm and rich-sounding with supreme punchiness and pronounced lower mids. It has excellent string definition, and it really shines for single-note solos and fingerpicking. All in all, it is one of the more vintage-sounding guitars in our shop!

Condition of Instrument

This guitar is nearly immaculate with only the slightest bit of finish swirling and a couple very minor finish checks in the top near the bridge. Everything functions perfectly and the guitar plays like a dream. It comes with its original black molded hardshell Case.

Only 77 of these were ever made, and the label was signed by C.F. Martin IV and Mrs. P. Bechtel. Fun fact: this model was a "Guitar of the Month" in 1993!
