Here we have an early post-war Martin 0-17 that plays perfectly and sounds tremendously good.
C. F. Martin 0-17 Model Flat Top Acoustic Guitar (1946), made in Nazareth (Pennsylvania) natural lacquer finish, mahogany body and neck, rosewood fingerboard and bridge.
This is a superb playing and sounding early post-war Martin 0-17 with a very powerful tone for a small body all-mahogany guitar.
This 0-17 was built in1946, by which time the 14-fret version of the model had already proved a very popular design.
While the 0-17 is plain in appearance and stood near the bottom of the Martin guitar line, it is still built of very high-grade materials to the highest standards.
Then as now 0-17 is a fully professional-quality instrument, extremely responsive with a rich, singing tone.
This guitar shows some wear and has a refinish – nicely made. It has received a neck reset and plays nicely all the way down the neck.
This guitar plays flawlessly, with a stellar sound. We love these small-body mahogany Martins.
