What a great guitar … this is an original Martin from the “Pre-War” period – model 0-17. Completely made of wonderful mahogany.
The Martin Pre-War guitars are legendary among steel string guitars. At that time Martin guitars were still built in limited numbers. For each instrument selected high-quality materials were used and each instrument was tuned and optimized individually (this stopped in the 40’s and 50’s).
This guitar sounds so wonderfully bluesy and would be a wonderful instrument for a Jazz/Blues guitarist. It has a great quality sound and produces a fabulous mature vintage tone with sweet highs clear mids and a fine bass. It is wonderfully balanced in sound and absolutely fun to play.
It is one of the later 1933 models with 14 frets, which makes it even more special!
The condition is very good for a guitar of that age. Bridge has been replaced otherwise there is not a lot to say about it.
A neck reset was done and the action is perfect. The neck is straight and the frets are in good condition.
It comes with ta newer hard case.
