Description: 1947 Vintage Martin 00-17 0017 00 17 Acoustic
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
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”
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.
