The J WAS the largest body made by Martin until the Grand J was introduced in 2009. The Grand is a full size jumbo with a 17" lower bout.

I'm pretty sure that all AGF postings need to include a price.

My mom has about 20 guitars including one of this model, well it's an 85 with no M on the end, but a J40. It's my favorite when I go to visit. Fabulous guitar. With ridiculously fine tone.
Relative to the question above on break angle,

With a relatively cheap neck set to take it back to new spec, this could be one of the richest and most formidable guitars you'll find. I'm sure it sounds great as is though. I've just contemplated buying my mom's and doing just that. I'm personally averse to low saddles so I commiserate with that question.
Best luck in the sale. I'm sure this is a phenomenal guitar.
