"Does anyone find issues with the intonation of 1970's Martins?"

It's part of Martin-Lore that there was a problem with bridge-placement (or maybe the saddle-angle) on some Martins built in the 70's. I know of one or two luthiers who have had Martins in for bridge/saddle alterations to correct this fault.

If you have one with such a problem, if you're the original owner and it was purchased in the USA, it might be worth talking to CFM customer services about a warranty repair.
