Description: 1947 Vintage Martin 00-17 0017 00 17 Acoustic Guitar

Condition: This guitar has nothing but potential to be a great player and is an ideal project for a skilled luthier. The bridge plate is cracked and must be replaced. The neck heel has separation and will require a reset. The neck looks pretty straight but may need a heat press. The bridge is currently glued in place but likely needs to be reset as well. There are several cracks throughout the guitar that will require repair. A previous owner over sprayed the entire guitar with lacquer. No loose or missing braces. Tuners are unoriginal. Fingerboard and frets have moderate play wear but are in good useable condition.

Body: Mahogany top, sides and back. Rosewood bridge with ivoroid saddles, three inlayed rings around the sound hole and a single-ply tortoise pickguard. Lower bout: 14 3/8” wide x 3 15/16” deep. Upper Bout: 11” wide x 3.5” deep.

Neck: Mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, white dot inlays and a 1 11/16” nut. Kluson Deluxe nickel, tuners, 24 ¾” scale length.

Set Up: This guitar has been professionally inspected and assessed by our luthier.

Review: I can’t stress how much potential this guitar has. The required work is such that a skilled luthier would be able to make this thing sing. There are several options for the finish of this guitar. There are a variety of lacquers that could be used upon removal of the current lacquer that would really make this guitar open up.

Case: Includes unoriginal newer model hardshell Martin case.

Note: This guitar has been strung up for purpose of photos but is not strung to pitch. Due to the cracked bridge plate we do not recommend winding the strings up to pitch.
