While doing the detective work necessary to bring my basket case Martin Backpacker (see my related post in repairs) back to life, I’m realizing I need answers to some geometry questions.

The top and back appear to be flat in all directions and parallel to each other. Is this correct?

Is the plane of the fretboard parallel to the top?.....or is it pitched back a bit like a “normal” neck to body joint?
