2005 Martin DC-16RGTE :: resecure pickup elements and set up. The output jack was falling out of the guitar as the nut inside had worked it’s way loose.  It was tightened and the cabling was resecured to the side so as to not rattle around inside the guitar. The frets are severely worn, yet the guitar plays fairly clean with low action.  The guitar suffers from numerous low-humidity cracks along both the top and back seams.  The top seam running from the bridge to the tail block is completely open to the extent that a Post-It can be easily inserted.  I recommended that this top crack be be a priority and repaired as soon as the player’s budget will allow as it will eventually cause other complications.
