Default 1952 Martin 00-17

Up for sale is an incredible 1952 Martin 00-17. Here’s the video demo:

https://youtu.be/9nyJieeoX3s

All mahogany construction, no cracks except for a couple in one area on the back – this area is supposed to have received a bit of finish touchup, but I can’t really see it. Otherwise, the beautiful finish is entirely original. The neck has been reset, the tuners replaced, and a pickup removed. This guitar is in amazing condition for its age, though. 1 11/16” nut width.

It sounds massive – I couldn’t believe it when I first strummed it. One of the best smaller-body Martins I’ve played. It works wonderfully for fingerstyle but also handles a flatpick very well.

Asking $3,100 + shipping. No trades, please.

Man, why must you tempt me this?! I'm trying to buy back my OM1AJL, but man I've been craving something vintage and mahogany...

What part of Nashville are you in? I may have to come check this one out :-)

Phenomenal tone! Wish it had a fat 1 3/4 nut neck...
