Experience the Elderly Difference
A rare and interesting instrument, this tiple was originally built by Martin for Wm. J. Smith & Co., a music store in New York City. It features a spruce top with Brazilian rosewood binding and fan bracing. The back, sides, and neck are crafted from mahogany, while the fretboard and headstock overlay are also Brazilian rosewood. The tiple includes a reproduction rosewood bridge. It has 10 strings arranged in 4 courses (2-3-3-2). Despite having 8 repaired top cracks, the instrument is in very good overall condition. Currently on consignment, it is in Very Good Condition (VGC).
