   "I Inherited this relic from my mother in law. It had been handed down from her uncle Walt ( original purchaser ) as the story goes. Inside the sound hole are the initials H L K and a date of Jan 23, 99. This confirms with my correspondence with Paula Primrose at Martin on the model and year. Not sure who H.L.K is and would love to find out. Needs some minor crack repair, strings and a set of ivory pegs, neck appears to be true so no need of a neck set. 1 of 367 made that year. I'm not sure how many of those were O18's. I'm guessing, not many. Can't wait to play it!"

Comments:
   "1907 Martin 0-17 (serial # 10337) is in restorable condition. The top is attached to the sides and is crack free. The back is crack free also but is separating from the sides in a few places. There are two cracks in the sides, one about 1 inch long and the other a few inches long. There is a small narrow chip of the side (about 1/8th x 3/4") where it meets the back. The bridge is separating from the top. I took it to a local expert guitar repair shop where a couple repair guys assessed it. One repairman, who did speak with some authority, decided that the bridge may not be original. He also figured the fret board may not be original. He thought the scale didn't quite measure to the correct dimentions and said that if restrung in the present configuration, the intonation would not be correct. Not being an expert, I couldn't really argue with him. I know enough to know that it needs a neck reset, frets (it's missing most and the others are loose) structural work and a big time clean up. One of the repairmen was interested in buying it. I dicided to put it up for grabs on ebay instead. My research (books and internet) revealed that the 1906-1917 Martin 0-17's had mahogany bodies and a spruce tops and that only 420 of this specific model were made. Thereafter the 17's models were all mahogany. There is pencil inscription on the underside of the top. Hand penciled is the 10337 serial number which matches the number on the neck block. Also in pencil is the date: 1-09-07. The 10337 is an early 1907 number (Martin only made 398 guitars in 1907 according to the 'Martin Book') . My main reason for having the guitar guys looking at it was to estimate how much it would cost to fully restore it (at least $1500 to do all the needed work and install correct fret board). It is too much for me although the thought of having a 100 year old PLAYABLE Martin around is appealling. So I offer it up for those who are skilled enough to do the work or collectors who desire this somewhat rar

The back of the headstock shows where the original ivory strap button was located. It is braced for steel strings and has been strung with them for decades with no problems in the top or neck. It is currently strung with extra lights and sounds amazing. John says he believes it went back to Martin in the 1930's to be refinished and have a new bridge put on. The belly bridge helps it to hold steel strings perfectly. The original friction pegs have been replaced with Waverly open back tuners. John removed most of the oversprayed laquer through careful buffing and French polished over the original French polish. He also repaired any cracks that were in the back and sides. The top is original and X braced with shallow scalloping. The top has no cracks or other issues. This is a superb piece of Adirondack that has aged to perfection and has handled steel strings for at least the last few decades with no signs of trouble. The pickguard is new, but made in the original style of the guitar by John Greven. We've included a brand new Calton Flight Case to protect this rare instrument."

   "Neck had been refinish, but it original, nylon strings, bridge needs to be reglue, little seperation"
   "Back has dent, about 2x2 and hairline on the top of the body"
   "Case not original"
   Actually at a guess, I'd say the neck finish is more likely to be original than the body.

   "This guitar has all of it's original interior structures present, intact and secure (including bridge plate). The finish is entirely original. The neck is straight (not twisted, warped or bowed at all) and the frets are in very good shape, as is the fretboard. The neck shows very little wear to the finish or the fretboard. The top is quite flat with very little distortion or rotation. The inside of the top of the guitar bears a date and initial marking of Frank Henry Martin, who was the CEO of CF Martin & Co. from about 1888 to 1945. the pencil-written inscription, typical of guitars of this period, reads "11521 9/7/12 FHM", indicating the serial number, date and CEO's initials"

   "Comments: "I love the sound of really old guitars. They are so open and alive. This one is no exception. It sounds like it is twice the size that it is. " - Al Petteway"
   "The 0-18 was made in Brazilian Rosewood until 1917. This guitar has a very nice set of Brazilian Rosewood and a superb Adirondack top with the strength to hold up to extra light steel strings or silk & steels. I love the voice of this guitar, it just about jumps out of your lap with energy and sounds like a piano. Great separation and clarity and power beyond it's size. All the work performed has been done expertly and overall this is a pretty clean guitar for almost 100 years old. This is one you and your family can enjoy for another 100 years and it should do nothing but increase in value the whole time. A sweetheart guitar. - Paul Heumiller"

   Built for Southern California Music Company, has stamp on back of peghead
   "the back graft is stamped with C. F. Martin's logo. A paper label inside the instrument reads "Rolando [brand] Koa Wood Guitar, Made Expressly for Hawaiian Steel Style of Playing". The guitar is fan braced like all of Martin's first steel strings (including the first Ditson Dreadnaughts). Apparently the X bracing Martin used on its gut sting guitars must have been thought of as not strong enough for steel string tensions. Funny that. The instrument is in excellent and original condition, with only a glued top seam separation and reglued bridge striking against it. The neck was professionally reset some time ago, and the instrument is today very playable. With an eighth of an inch of saddle above the bridge, the action measures 7 to 9 64ths and can be lowered further. It is strung with 11-52 strings."

   "I own a 1919 00-21, and I wish I could remember the serial number right now (on my lunch break at work). I believe it is 1411X, so it is very close to this one in production time. This one looks more original than mine in that I have a replacement bridge, but a couple interesting similarities."
   "1. my fretboard has a similar discoloration in it, near the soundhole, but it is ebony. Just a light streak and smaller that on this one."
   "2. I've insisted that my inlays are not original, but luthiers who've looked at it say that the fretboard is original, and there's no evidence of tampering with the inlays. My inlays are solid, no slots."
   "One difference I noticed - the bridge pins. I've been obsessing over getting mine to fit better - maybe they're not original after all. Hmmm..."
   "Concerning the top wood...photorc has a 1919 0-45 that he says could be cedar. The top on the one in the auction and his top look very similar."
   "I'll get the full serial number tonight."

   "Purchased from Fred Oster's Vintage Instruments in Philadelphia in April, 2007 for $5,500."
   "Prior to being consigned at Vintage Instruments, this guitar lived in New Jersey for about 4 years after it was purchased from The Music Emporium in Lexington, MA in around 2002."
   "The Music Emporium had the restoration done to this guitar (TJ Thompson's shop), consisting of back and side crack repairs, neck set, bar refret, repro bridge (original saddle), bridge plate overlay, and some oil varnish finish work as necessary for the extensive back and side crack repairs. Also same oil varnish finish applied over the top wear and back of neck."
   "Bill Tippin in Marblehead, MA, set the guitar up and installed a new bone nut in 2007. New Waverly tuners installed at this time."
   "John Arnold inspected this guitar in 2008 and pronounced it in good health, confirming the above reapairs to be sound and in need of no further attention at that time."

   "This is a Vintage 1920 Martin 00-xx. I have done a little research to determine the year (1920)and model (00) but I am not sure of the model. It looks like other 00-28s that I have seen, but I am not an expert. If anyone out there has more info, please let me know. This guitar dates back to 1920 with a serial number of 15153. The guitar is in great shape and is FREE from any cracks, splits, or repairs! This is in 100% original condition. It looks like it was played yesterday and put in the case for the last 60 years. The wood is in GREAT shape there is no splintering or damage of any kind. The case is also in great shape. "

In exceptional condition, it was offered in 1999 by Real Guitars for $12,000, went to another dealer on the East Coast that offered it for $20,000, after which it apparently sold; it can be seen on pages 51 and 52 of The Acoustic Guitar by Freeth and Alexander."

Comments:
   "Over all this Martin is in great shape both structurally and aesthetically. Some Martin collectors my be put off because at one point my grandfather electrified this 2-17. This modification was then reversed and covered with a matching mahogany patch. There is a small notch in the sound hole for the pickup. This in no way effects the playability or wonderful sound produced by the instrument. The repair in my opinion blends into the instrument about as well as can be"
   "The body, neck, bridge, and bracing are all in good shape. Original tuner hardware is in good condition. Action seems slightly high and first 3 frets show wear but not damage. Guitar was recently strung with extra light Martin 80/20 strings"
   "This vintage Martin parlor guitar is such a wonderful pleasure to play. My grandfather played this guitar since he was a child for good reason. This guitar is being offered at no reserve. Please bid to win this lovely peice of Martin history. I will answer your questions to the best of my ability"
   Editor Note, Large square patch on the side has four screws. Finish likely touched up or redone. Looks a little off

   Martins records do not record a style for many Tiple's made in 1922 and earlier. Best guess is style 18 based on materials.

   "It is overall in excellent showing a few scratches on the back with a small ding and scratch or two (or more) on the top. After careful examination we have come to the conclusion that the top finish may actually be original (it is in startlingly fine shape), but said top may have been buffed and polished with great vigor. In other words, the patina of age has been superceded by its lustrous shine. What was some past owner thinking? We, ourselves, prefer grimy and dull. The sides and back show little wear, just a few scratches and a mildly pronounced back center seam (dryness can cause this)."

   "This beautiful instrument has been in my family since 1923. It has been lovingly looked after, serviced, re-strung and played. A costly divorce is the only reason I have for selling this guitar. As long as it goes to a loving home, however, I will be happy"
   Oversprayed/refinished. Bridge and fretboard both very shiny which indicates a less than knowledgeable person worked on this at some point

   "This was my late fathers and it.s been sitting in storage for many years. It comes in a hard case which fits it nicely and there are no identifying marks on the case. Until today, it had 4 Ukulele strings on it, so it had been converted to a Ukulele. To do this the fatter Uke strings would not fit through the brass plate at the bridge, so that plate was removed. You can see it in one of the pictures as it was not discarded. The wood was sufficient to support the Uke strings without damage. However on the nut, that piece is supposed to have grooves for 10 strings and the fat Uke strings have caused 3 of the seperations between the grooves to break off. That.s the only repair needed. There is some wear to the finish below the Sound hole and a few minor scrapes here and there. See the pix. All very minor. Some strings are included. Some say Violin and some say banjo so you.ll no doubt need to get new strings when you get the nut repaired"

   "This is a 1924 Martin 0-18 in fair condition. It appears to have its original finish, what's left of it, but there has definitely been some over-spraying or touch-up efforts over the years in areas where some damage occurred, as seen in the close-ups of the back and sides where patches or splices of wood can be seen. The top is remarkably crack-free and the small maple bridgeplate and scalloped bracings are all original and still in good shape. So once restored, this guitar should have an excellent sound. I assume that the ebony stringnut and pyramid bridge are original. The guitar needs a neck-set, but there appears to be no cracks or repaired neck breaks or headstock repairs ot structural issues of any kind."
   "Looking inside at the original serial number (22422), one sees a glue line where apparently the neck block was cracked at one time. One of the original bar frets has lifted up out of its slot at the 12th fret, as seen in the close-up. The original rosewood binding on the sides and back is in good shape and I guess the tuning keys are original with those ebony buttons that match the ebony fingerboard. There is a obviously a replacement screw in the D-string's tuning gear as seen in the close-up. The brazilian rosewood headstock veneer is in good shape. So, really other than the side patch and 2-inch back patch seen in the close-ups, this guitar pretty much is structurally 'all there' and should make a nice-playing and sounding pre-war Martin. Being that a 1920's 0-18 is priced in the guitar guide books fro $3,000 to $4,000... here's a chance to own a fair one that's only needing some work, primarily a neck re-set and some fret work, I believe. This vintage pre-war Martin guitar has no case, but will be double-boxed for added protection during shipment."

   "As you can see from the photos an early style torch inlay was added to the slotted headstock some where along the way (I assume its not factory). Looks like the nut, bridge, and tuners are replacements as well."
   "The guitar is in good shape for its age. It has had multiple cracks repaired on the top, back and sides, none of which currently need any further attention. The guitar has never had a neck reset. It measures 5/32 from the top of the 12th fret to the bottom of the E string with some saddle left to take it down slightly further. The guitar is playable as is but a neck reset is probably needed in the future. The guitar was recently checked out by a reputable luthier and given a clean bill of health."
   "The guitar comes with an old non-original chipboard case."
   Non original bridge. Looks like there was an oversized bridge on the guitar at one point
   Finish looks a bit funky

   "It has overspray on the body and was buffed up a bit -- a center seam was, perhaps at the Martin factory, repaired and in those days the factory liked to make it look shiny again. but it has lived long enough to acquire another patina. There is, for example, light pickwear through the finish at 4 o clock position on the soundhole, One person opined that perhaps the top was refinished, but the marks under the finish suggest overspray -- one can see a few ancient dings under the overspray on the face, but the rest of the guitar is solidly excellent with just a few minor signs of use, again, under the overspray."

   My wife and I were over some friends house last night. I've been lending Judy a tele and a martin HD 35 to learn to play. Well, after a half hour or so she says, "we have a guitar you know, it was Mark's aunts guitar when she was a nurse in WWII"
   I asked them to bring it down thinking it was proba Stella or a dept store brand. Well, it's a Martin with 20 frets, neck joins body at 12th fret, slot head ivory tuning buttons, waverlys, rosewood small body (parlor sized I'd guess), herringbone, serial #23514
   Unfortunately it has some damage. The action is very high, the back is separated from the sides for about 6 inches, someone added a metal tailpiece. There are no cracks in the spruce or rosewood and I think it can bed restored

Comments:
   "This guitar is a beautiful example of the pre-war Martins that have become so desirable in the past few decades. This particular one is no different. The guitar is very sound for the exception of one thing, the bridge has pulled up and affected one area on the front of the body. You can see in the pictures that there is a 1.5" inch wide section that seems to have been affected. This section of the body is not loose or separated it just has the two cracks that run from the bottom of the bridge to the bottom of the body. I am not a luthier but this appears to be a very simple fix. Aside from what I just described the guitar has very little wear. There is a few minor scratches just to the right of the sound hole"

   "While it has seen more than its share of playing time (honest wear, not stage fights, though) and does have finish worn off at the treble top bout on side, possibly from contact with an ill-fitting case, and also has a fair amount of top wear below soundhole, it also has its original bar frets which don.t show much wear. The action is quite playable."
   "Wanting to play while erect a former player, possibly large, hirsute and damp, has added a strap pin to the treble side of the heel, on a diagonal. The unvarnished truth is that said Sumo-sized strummer rendered the gloss finish off of a large section of the varnish finished back."

   "Up for auction is a vintage martin acoustic guitar style o-45 made in the year 1926. Serial number 27486. As the photos show the instrument appears to be in used but very good original condition. It conforms to the typical specifications of model for the period in which it was made with 13 1/2 inch wide body at the lower bout, brazilian rosewood back, sides, and peghead veneer, mahogany neck, adirondack spruce top with scalloped bracing, ebony fingerboard and bridge, torch peghead inlay, snowflake fingerboard inlay, and abalone trim on all body edges of the front, sides, and back. At the time this instrument was made the style 45 was martin's most deluxe level of ornamentation. The 0 size is a very small instrument. At the time this guitar was made martin made sizes up to 000 At 15 inch wide. This is a piece which would be of great interest to collectors as well as musicians. On july 3rd 2002, this was appraised by goerge gruhn from gruhn guitars 400 broardway, nashville, tn. with a current market value of $30,000. The accual appraisal is in my possesion. Any questions please ask. sold as is, so serious inquiries only!"

   "I got it yesterday, but I waited one day before posting as it's very easy to be taken away by enthusiasm when a guitar like this arrives"
   "What can I say, it's everything I was told it is, and more..."
   "First, its conditions. Unbelievably clean, it took my breath away when I opened the case, a beautiful, gorgeous example of a twenties 00 in -28 style. A true in-the-case-under-the-bed classic"
   "It is very light (a little less than 1.4 kilos) and very resonant"
   "Warm sounding, sweet, airy and balanced, a perfect fingerstyle guitar. Very comfortable shallow V neck and fine set up for me. It's very loud for such a relatively small body size"

   "Here is a really cool old 1929 Martin - model 2-17 - a small guitar with a big sound. There is quite a bit of pick wear on the front, (see photos), and many nicks and scratches BUT NO CRACKS and no repaired cracks. Not even one.The frets that are on it are the large bar style frets and are in excellent shape, so possibly the guitar has been refretted but the fret board looks fine and does not have much finger wear. The intonation is excellent and it plays really well. There have been no modifications made to this guitar while I have owned it and there do not appear to ever have been any. It's a pretty simple guitar construction-wise. Someone mentioned that the serial number should place it in 1927 but there is no binding on the guitar. Due to slumping sales Martin stopped putting binding on the 2-17s in 1929, which allowed them to lower the prince and the drop in price actually improved sales quite a bit"
   "I purchased this instrument from Skinner auction house back in 2004. Skinner had the instrument listed in their catalog as follows;"
   "C. F. Martin & Company, Nazareth, 1929, Model 2-17, stamped internally C.F. MARTIN & COMPANY, NAZARETH PA and 30920 at the upper block, the two-piece mahogany back with black center strip, the mahogany sides, the mahogany neck, the rosewood fingerboard, the mahogany top, length of back 18 1/4 in., width of lower bout 12 1/4 in., with case"
   "If Skiiner says it's 1929 then I won't argue with them. A great Mahogany Parlor Guitar. The Specs are as follows; The height from fret to string on the low E string is 446 - .037. the height on the high E string is 42 - .041. Measurements Overall Length: 36 3/4" Body Length: 18 1/8" Upper Bout Width: 8 1/2" Lower Bout Width: 12 1/4" Body Depth at Neck: 4" Body Depth at End Pin: 3 1/4" Fingerboard width at nut: 1 3/4" Fingerboard width at 12th Fret: 2 1/4" Bridge String Spacing: 2 3/8" Scale Length: 24 7/16" Soundhole Diameter: 3 1/2" Frets Clear of Body: 12 Total Frets: 18 Materials & Construction Top Material: Solid Mahogany Back & Sides: Solid Mahogany Neck Material: One Piece Mahogany Fingerboard Material: Brazillian Rosewood Bridge Material: Brazillain Rosewood Head Stock overlay: Brazillian Rosewood Nut Material: Ebony Bridge Style: Rectangular (non-belly) Back Binding: Rosewood Strip (Pre 1930), None (Post 1930) Top Binding: Rosewood (Pre 1930), None (Post 1930) Rosette: 3 thin white-black-white rings Fingerboard Markers: Small Pearl dots at 5th & 9th, 2 small dots at 7th Marking: C.F. Martin Stamp on back of headstock"
   "The case that comes with the guitar is a soft shell case with a wild pasley patern inside. It's not much of a case"
   "Lots of mojo with this old Martin"

   "This guitar belonged to my grandfather. He bought it used at Pearl Harbor during the war. It hasn't been played since the 1960's. I believe it is a 1927 model with the serial number being 31941"
   "Cosmetically for its age it is great shape. I can't find the slightest of cracks or any sign of repair besides a replaced bridge. The replaced bridge is kind of wacky, it looks to have been done in the 50's by the age of the screws the used to put it on. Why they did this I have no idea. There is no bowing to the top. Its as flat as can be. There are photos of the lousy work done, also photo of a wood block attached to the inside where the bridge attached. The neck could use some work, it plays fine through the 7th fret but gets a little ugly there on out. Maybe some fretwork but no more surprises with this one."

This work was done by Maton guitars here in Melbourne Australia and I was very happy with their work"

   Note: The following entry has been heavily edited by Mike Miller but still contains basically the same info as the ebay posting.
   "The guitar has been seriously refinished. The repair to the spruce top is old, May have been done by martin. The repaired cracks are stable and filled,glued, Etc. They do not affect the sound. Lower purfling has been filled. Entire guitar has been refinished. I believe the tuning heads have been replaced also. I put light guage strings on, it does sound great. A glass slide bottle sounds better on it. The height at the 12TH fret is 5/16THS on the e string. The last time I played a guitar was 30 years ago, and I wasn't very good- So I can't tell you anything about "the action" other than it sounds funkey-blusey-funkey, which is all I know how to play. That and a few neal young chords. The woman I got it from was a guitar teacher-said it sounded like Leon Redbone. It is what it is.

   "set up for steel strings, all original parts including engraved Waverly tuners, pyramid bridge & pins, bat frets. the neck has been reset, the bridge re-glued, the frets seated, a 5" back crack fixed and French polish on the back where fabric had stuck to it. There's a small top dent that's been French polished and some pick wear. They love the sound. All that French polish usually knocks the price down a bit, which probably accounts for the asking price"

   "it does have a hairline top crack in the lower treble side, and the instrument has been oversprayed with varnish, or maybe polyurethane, or something else that is not lacquer. The owner says it was varnish. (Can I hear a "yeah, right?") Said finish shows bubbles, which suggests that it was brushed on, and yes, well, also some drips. However, our shop will try to remove the overspray, perform a neck reset and set up for normal playing, remove and reglue the bridge"

   "Condition: Excellent, solid guitar, not a single crack anywhere. Master luthier Bill Tippin did a neck set, dressed the newer bar frets, replaced the bridge, nut and saddle. Original bar frets and nut/saddle in the case. A thin sister plate was added to the bridge plate due to worn string holes. Finish appears to be all original as are the tuners. The tone is most certainly all original!"
   "Comments: "This is one of the nicest vintage Martins we've seen. The sound is big and projects like you might expect. It's amazing that this guitar has never had a crack repaired and the wood is all original. What a find." - Al Petteway"
   "Al and I both love this one... It has that small body charm and tons of power. Perfect for blues, rags, old time and fingerstyle in just about any genre. This is a rare condition guitar structurally perfect and Bill Tippin put his midas touch on the neck set and setup so it play perfectly. The 0 and 00 sized Martins are the next horizon of collectible prewar guitars and are increasing in value at a rapid pace. So this one should appreciate quickly while you enjoy it. Even as I write this I'm thinking I should keep this one, but alas my job is to offer them to you... " - Paul Heumiller"
   Looks like normal wear based on pictures. A bit of finish loss around soundhole where you typically see it due to pick wear, but nothing bad. Some scratches on the peghead

Comments:
   flip-it-fast sale on ebay
   Three patches on treble side lower bout. Patches very dark, look to be about nickle sized.
   Non original belly bridge
   Back, neck and sides refinished. Probably the top as well
   "I find this guitar quite interesting but in the end all considerations are pointless since it's obviously refinished. While the neck looks 28 style because of the diamond I'd be curious to learn about the back ground (or to take the neck out to see the number). As I have the impression that the neck isn't a replacement I see it has the wide fret board, an original looking nut with slots for steel strings, it appears to have bar frets and correct style 21 inlays (viewed from the distance) and a (rather) period correct looking head stock shape including tuner position (which is different to the '30s and later position). So at least it seems to be an original OM or earlier period Martin neck. So I would tend to the assumption that this neck is original and custom ordered. Very interesting but the guitar unfortunately is already refinished. (Comment by Willi, AKA BHguitars on UMGF)"
   "I actually did talk to Martin and there is no record of a special order on this guitar. That's not totally definitive but makes it seem less likely that the neck is original. I would have thought that even a special order solid peg head would have had the stamp on the back. Of course, the minute Willi suggests the possibility that the neck could be original I have to rethink everything. Always listen to the real experts! (Comment by Steve, kriegerse on UMGF)"
   "Did they have it in their books as an 0-21? One thing that crossed my mind early on was that it could have been a tenor guitar converted to 6-string by the Martin factory in the 30s, when they would have installed a belly bridge and new neck. But that's of course just a wild guess not directly supported by the evidence. (Comment by jsalmon on UMGF)"

   "Here is a nice Vintage 1927 Martin T-18 Tiple I had planned on fixing up but it doesn't look like I'll ever get it done, so out of the closet and up on the auction block it goes! I bought it just like you see it with 3 old and decrepit strings on it. There is lots of wear and tear that look to be the natural result of being played and loved for many years. I had thoughts to turn it into a small guitar by drilling different holes in the bridge and replacing the nut, but this should probably just get fixed up and used for what it is since it is after all a Martin. I call it a project because both sides have long cracks and will need to be fixed in order for it to be useable/playable. The owners had lived in New England and the winters there are brutal on solid wood instruments if they don't get the proper humidity (this Tiple should be featured in ad for a humidifier company). The bridge looks good and has not pulled up (although I have no idea how it would hold up with a whole set of strings). The top and back are nice and flat with no cracks. It looks like someone had tried super-glue on one of the cracks (doh!). It has very small frets and this was played back in the day so they have some wear to them. The nut looks good. The tuners all work and the buttons look incredible (I'm not sure what they are made of but they have a "grain" to them which you can see in the pictures). It is missing the strap pin for the butt end (they simply twist in and there are all sorts of after market buttons available from exotic woods inlaid with abalone to plain plastic) and note the cool strap holding "hook" on the bass side tuners. The neck set looks good, but if you really wanted easy action & playability, you should plan on a neck reset and fret job while your "at it". I would guess that it would play O.K. without that, but it would certainly be a better player if you did it. This thing will probably sound incredible if it gets the right care/love as it is over 80 years old, sol

   "Older thin refinish was very well done. As mentioned, it has very light bracing. I suspect someone had once set it up for Hawaiian play using heavy strings and high action. Some top distortion and original bridge plate was split. Our guy did an excellent job replacing the bridge plate and the entire top is now 100% sturdy and stable. One crack below the low E pin (see photo 15) and several small back cracks are well aligned and tightly sealed. Cracks are innocuous and difficult to see on figured koa. Original bar frets are uniformly low but as mentioned, it plays great and intonates perfectly. A solid sturdy guitar that sounds wonderful and is ready for another 80 years of good service"

   "....didn't inlay anything - just blended hard edge that the last 'repairman' had routed for guard, and then began rather complicated layering of various finishes (primarily lacquer and shellac) and colors (powdered pigments, aniline dyes, orange shellac, etc.) to try to get a decent match."

   Neck reset
   Before restoration had an ugly winged pickguard inlayed in the top
   "Very rare Martin 000-45 guitar from 1928 in great shape. This guitar was recently worked on by the pre war Martin specialist, TJ Thompson. An appraisal detaling both his work and the state of the guitar, is shown. Basically, this guitar had a pickguard on it that was not original. This was removed and the area touched up.Also a new bridge was made and a neck-set performed. I have personally owned this 000-45 for close to 20 years and it has been my baby. T his guitar plays and sounds better than ever since TJ worked on it. While not as loud as a pre war D-28 exactly, it has a resonance and finess to the sound that I have never before encountered in any guitar. The right tuners are now on the guitar and the original case is included, along with a new sturdy case for shipping."

   "Guitar is very clean with no cracks, no repairs, and was stored away for many years, some of the finish on the back reacted with old strap in an old case. Guitar is set up to fingerpick with straight neck and low/medium action and not needing neck reset. Guitar is very loud, responsive, this all koa vintage Martin has a bark and clarity that is unique and perfect for the blues. Guitar comes in archtop form fitting newer hardshell case that is very tough and protective."

   "This is an all Mahogany guitar and is in near mint to mint condition, with only a few scratches keeping it from perfect. This guitar is collector quality, a real museum piece. There are no cracks, breaks or issues of any kind; the neck is super straight on this guitar, and has never been reset. The bridge is very secure, and there is no top bellying. The guitar seems to have rarely been played. Frets are of the original Flush Fret variety, and all elements of the guitar are original, including the finish, tuners,fretboard,frets, bridge, everything"

   "Great old original Martin #37518 dates from the 1928-29 era fresh from the old house in old wooden case. Has mother of pearl inlay and a jewel on the top. The string holder on the bottom is coming lose and will need to be reglued and there is a small crack in the top(see photo) no weakness just a little crack. The other things were in the case, old eye glasses, info on the Greyhound, box with stuff. I can see the man in the glasses boarding the Greyhound in the 1930's but I not sure were is was going."
   Pictures aren't great, but looks to be refinished
   Non original pickguard
   bridge nearly detached
   Possible loose braces under bridge as top looks a bit warped in one picture
   Crack in headstock from curve by high E string down neck. Not clear how far it extends

   "This is a professionally refinished Martin Acoustic Guitar in excellent condition"
   Most likely a 0 or 00 sized 18 series guitar
   Refinish looks thick. Finish also visible inside the soundhold so whomever did the refinish did not know much about refinishing instruments. No finish on fretboard so they weren't totally clueless.
   Buy it now price of $5,350 which is very high given the apparently poor refinish

   "This is cleaner than most but there are some issues that our repair shop is, even as we speak, taking care of: they are gluing a 7. back crack, gluing a seam opening down the back stripe, (the back stripe is lifted away from the back, eighty years of dryness has caused it to become slightly elevated.), regluing the bridge, performing a neck reset and a bar fret refret. When the guitar came in it had a .straight. saddle . so possibly it had once been used to play Hawaiian music with a slide, consequently our workshop is modifying the bridge (which is a replacement, by the way) so that the saddle can be angled for proper intonation. It also has a bent tuner but we will not attempt to straighten it . since it.s an original tuner and trying to straighten it may break it which would be a bad thing (trust me). There is normal hand and finger wear on the back of the neck, normal signs of use and wear overall including a few dings and scratches, a scuff on the side near the neck but on the whole this is a remarkably clean and wonderful sounding instrument. It sets the new standard for excellence in a late .20s herringbone grand concert. This is priced at $16,491 at our Discount Price, or $15,995 at our Cash Discount price."

   "The neck looks to be straight. The headstock appears to be made of rosewood and the tuning pegs are all original. It is missing it's pick guard and does show wear to this area. There are a few issues that will need attention. The bottom bridge is lifting up a bit on one side. There is a split to the top at the bottom left- middle. When pressed down upon this goes right back into position. It is missing the bottom rest where the guitar would sit if stood up straight, and there are two circular scratches to the back of the guitar. Otherwise this beauty is in nice condition having only minor scuffs and scrathes to the body. The fret board is inlayed at the 5th, 7th and 10th frets. The neck is in very nice condition. I believe this is the original case which is in a rough condition with the leather hinges having dry rotted off"
   Editor Note, this guitar almost certainly did not come with a pickguard originally. So it isn't really missing.

   In the "Previous offerings" section
   "To many this is the ultimate Martin fingerstyle guitar, a 12 Fret OOO braced for steel strings with rectangular bridge and no pickguard. Dead straight Brazilian Rosewood, Adirondack Spruce top, Slothead with engraved halfplate tuners, C.F. Martin stamp on rear of head, Brazilian Rosewood headstock overlay, Nut as been shimmed after refret, 1 7/8" nut width, Ebony fingerboard with short pattern diamonds and squares inlay, Ivoroid binding and heelcap, Thin herringbone top purfling, 2 5/16' string spread at bridge, Virtually unangled bridge saddle, Solid pins, Zipper backstrip. The repairs have been limited to a neck reset and refret by T.J Thompson and his judicious application of varnish to the wear at the rear of the neck between the nut and 4th fret. With original hardshell case. This is as fine sounding an original 12 Fret OOO as you are ever likely to play."

   Item #200147949721
   "Vintage 1929 martin 00-42 restored about 10 years ago by master luthier Chris Berkov, Chris did a total refinish, neck set, new bridge, repaired 2 small holes in top where someone drilled through top by routing and splicing a 1 1/4" by 7" piece of spruce, hard to see nice job, also a hole in lower bout was repaired with brazilian rosewood patch, 2 small drill holes filled on each side of sound hole. There was a very small crack repair under b string, small crack on fretboard binding was repaired, no other cracks or breaks on guitar, tuners are a little older than what would have came on guitar but seem to hold tune fine. Guitar case is period but not sure if it is original to guitar. Chris did say guitar has original frets and may need fret job soon. Guitar sounds and plays wonderful. Neck angle is great and has high saddle. ThERE IS AN APPRAISAL FROM GEORGE GRUHN THAT IS INCLUDED THAT ESTIMATES GUITAR AT $12,500, My reserve is considerably lower than estimate"

   "I bought this at a pre-estate sale where I was invited to look at the books, and saw it sitting lonely in the corner. I combed the house for the case..but no luck. So it does not have an original case. I will send it in one, but by no means is it the original"
   "Only big flaw is that it is missing a tuning machine head (the turner) for the D string. You can still turn it, it is just missing the "cap" piece. There are a few small dings which photos will show. No cracks or repairs. A little worn to wood near sound hole (see photo), and light scratches and such. I do not know if all parts are original, seems like they would be, but am no expert"

   Octa Chorda, made at the request of Harry Hunt of the Ditson company. Hunt had made the request for this strange eight stringed instrument in 1925 but Martin was far too busy making Ukulele's. They finally completed this prototype in 1930 but by that time the Ditson company was about to be liquidated

I really didn't want to straighten it for fear that it might snap. These are the original tuners and they work well"

   "Okay, I suppose an OM-28 from 1929 would be even better, but I think they only made 6 of them that first year. 1930 was the second year of production for this, the first 14 fret Martin model and arguably the first modern guitar. This guitar is in perfect playing condition, but not totally original. It has either been overshot or re-lacquered and has some top and back repairs. There's an area on the treble side of the top above the pickguard where there is a slight depression caused by pick wear; this has clearly been refinished. There's also an area on the bass side of the top above the soundhole where I would say there has been a new piece of spruce patched in...it's a beautiful job. It retains its original small maple bridge plate. There are three repaired top cracks that I can see, one short one at the bottom of the center seam, one about 2.5 inches long from the lower edge, treble side and one about the same length at the waist, treble side. There are cleats visible through the soundhole on two back cracks, neither of which is visible from the outside. The original bar frets remain, and play great. The bridge may well be a repro, but it's a perfect one. There are modern Waverly tuners in place of the original banjo tuners (which never work to begin with...they only have a 4/1 ratio). The pickguard is also a modern replacement, and is the size Martin would have used on OMs from mid 1931 on, rather than the smaller 1930 style. Over the last 33 years, I've owned about 10 of these guitars. I always sold off the previous one when I found one that sounded better. This is the one I ended up with....I'm sure I'll never buy another, as they've gotten too pricey for me. In any case, this one sounds as good as the best I ever had. It comes in the modern very high class case shown in the pictures; this has actual fabric on the outside, by the way, rather than the usual plasticized whatever. The action is medium low, with room to lower or raise it at the bridge. I will offe

   Original finish, banjo tuners, original bar frets, nut, bridge and saddle. Neck reset. Small tear drop pick guard. Some pick wear around the sound hole, but otherwise very clean. Bridge pins and end pin are Willi replicas. There are four top cracks all expertly repaired. One small gouge on the bass side.
   The guitar was built on Sept. 13, 1930 and was one of a batch of ten made. Only 89 were made that year

   Replacement Belly bridge
   "Our professional repair shop has performed a much-needed neck reset. The three-on-a-side replaced tuners will be, themselves, replaced with banjo style tuners appropriate to this model and year. The guitar is accompanied by a framed photograph, taken in 1946, of its last owner, Les Monroe in his 30s, dressed in the Tom Joad style, surrounded by his wife, Yvonne who is playing a washtub with wooden sticks, and his brother, Tom, in sunglasses, behind him, and Tom's Wife Jean, positioned in front of a white shingled building. If you look carefully you will see, in this photo, a fiddle headstock and a finger or two peeking over the left edge from under the frame. The photo clearly shows this OM-28 herringbone when it had banjo tuners."
   "This guitar came to us from Les. daughter who provides an accompanying note that reads: This guitar was one of three purchased from the Martin Guitar factory for use in live performances on Canadian radio stations. Some 10 years later my father, who was an avid and enthusiastic guitar playing teenager, purchased it at a pawn shop in Montreal. As money was tight in those days he had to return it regularly in order to make ends meet but as soon as he was able he would buy it back. The guitar was his treasure, and he always reminded us of its worth. My dad, a natural comedian loved by all, sang and played that guitar for friends and family."

Comments:
   "Original grover banjo tuners/small peghead. Mahogany back, sides, and neck. Adirondack spruce top. Rosewood binding on back, rosewood and layered light/dark/light/dark binding on top. Work done in 1992 by T.J. Thompson: neck reset, refret with bar frets, made new bridge and bridge plate. Two top crack repairs: one along base side of finger extension which continues to just inside most outer sound ring, another hairline repair which goes from bridge to bottom of guitar. Very hard to see and is about two inches long. Looks like dark mechanical pencil writing. 6 or 7 cracks on sides, no patches. Dings and scratches on top and bottom of guitar. No cracks on back. Touch up/french polish area extending out in all directions about two inches from bridge-almost impossible to show in pictures. ALl repairs very stable. I would describe all work as excellent. Extremely light instrument with wonderful sound and plays like a dream. No buzzing and action height on low e is about 3mm, 2mm on high E. Snug fitting new om style case. Beautiful golden aging color. Still has saddle height. Repeat:--bridge, frets, bridge plate and nut not original. frets recently dressed"

   Vintage Martin Question
   --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
   I ran across someone selling a '31 Martin OM-28 w/ohsc (SN#45925) price undisclosed. It has replaced tuners, pickwear near the fingerboard that has been lacquered over to conserve the top wood, and extremely straight grain Brazilian Rosewood. The case is rough but intact.
   What kind of demand is there for this model and year? How does one go about estimating the price/value? It is evident that many of you on this forum have a vast amount of knowledge surrounding vintage guitars, and so I look to you for advice. Thoughts?

   Schoenberg sales text "very early in the year still with the small OM pickguard and banjo tuners, though the tuners have been replaced (with Waverlies), Adirondack spruce and straight-grain Brazilian rosewood, older top refin, beautifully done, replaced pickguard, might be original bridge. The tone of this guitar compares favorably with all the original OMs I've known, which is saying a lot! It is beautifully clear and musical, with trebles that are bright, yet exceedingly sweet, and a full yet unmuddy bass. It is a pleasure to play, and will add much beauty to your music. the neck is thin, disappears in your hand despite the typical wide spacing of the period"

   Asking Price: $2,500
   Some finish wear
   Impact crack on top? Hard to tell from pictures. Not huge, but two cracks run parallel to the grain a small distance apart and a third runs counter to the grain and across the other two, though it seems to end at one. Somewhat like a T with an extra horizontal bar. The non parallel crack is somewhat eliptical
   Loose tuning peg

   "The 'S' here refers to SPECIAL and the thinking is that one of Martin's dealers resuested a run of the economy 0-size with a spruce top and a larger pickguard. The tuners are upgraded to Nickel Waverlies as well."
   There were 2 batches of these built in 1931. Fred Oster owns one of the few 0-17S's that have survived and he tells me his came from the first batch that was run in June of '31 and encompassed serial #'s 47290-47314. Mine is from a second batch that was run in early July."
   "The pickguard, though quite unique is actually very cool looking in person. These days, that big a piece of 30's acetate is probably worth as much as the whloe guitar!"
   "If you have owned or played a 20's or 30's 0-18, you know how light they are. This one is lighter still since the board and bridge are Brazilian which is lighter weight than the Ebony used on the 18's."
   This one has the Ebony nut, bar frets, Ivory dot inlays, Brazilian top bindings & no back bindings. Sound is quite impressive and it responds to the lightest touch."
   "When Steve Kovacik to a look at this little guy, he really liked the grain on the neck which is probably flamed Mahaogany, though he wondered if it just might a hunk'o'Koa!"

   "Complete with flush bar-frets, tall bridge and saddle, this instrument sounds simply incredible! Martin Hawaiians have a very distinctive tone, thanks to their standard Spanish-style guitar construction. If you're used to playing an electric steel, Dobro, or Weissenborn you'll be amazed at what this instrument draws out of your hands. Lots of complex overtones, warm and dry mids, round trebles and a surprisingly sweet low end. This instrument is in very good condition. The original bridge had split and lifted off the guitar. The replacement ebony bridge is very slightly oversized. There is also evidence left by a tail-piece on the bottom of the guitar from many years ago. There is one typical pick guard crack that travels towards the bridge. The back, sides and neck are crack free. The finish is heavily checked on lower portions of the sides and has flaked off in some areas. The finish on the top and back are checked, but nice shape"

   "The serial # is 49604 placing this Martin Guitar in 1932. If you notice in the picture (Taken 1937) on the guitar is a diamond shaped piece of costume jewelry. I have this and to keep this guitars history with the guitar I will include the original picture and this piece of costume jewelry. I will also include multiple recordings of my aunt performing, 4 vinyls and 1 cassette. Also is a Record "This is John Gary" Signed to my aunt Rose from John Gary"
   "The recordings I have posted online I had my Brother-in-law make for me showing the guitars sound. The guitar has always been in a smoke free home, and in its case (I do believe it is the original case based on pictures I have seen but I can not confirm this), the case is fragile and has not held up to time like the guitar has, but that is what a case is for I suppose"
   "To my knowledge it is all original, never modified or worked on. I have kept it as-is since it has been in my possession"

   "This is a 1932 Martin C-1 acoustic archtop guitar. Very clean 8.5/10 condition, all original, and comes in the original chipboard case. Very little player wear, just some light dings and scratches throughout. It was strung up lefty and the pickguard was put on the top side. The original pickguard screw holes have been filled in. I've strung it up righty again with the same nut which works fine. The bridge adjustments have been taken off to lower the action but they're included. Features mahogany back and sides, spruce top, and Brazilian rosewod fingerboard"
   "One cool thing on the case is a note by a prison warden in 1948. He approved the item to be brought in by the original owner, a guard, to let an inmate play. I just bought this guitar from his estate so you will be the official second owner"

   "Guitar with original sunburst finished top. This is the highly sought after model with scalloped top bracing and the longer om scale length. When i acquired the instrument about 7 years ago, the sides were both damaged from the waist to the tailblock, beyond reasonable repair, and the finish had been removed from the back. After interviewing several top luthiers, and discussing their ideas for bringing the guitar back to its original glory, i chose bill asher , of marina del rey, california, famous for his acoustic work for guitarists such as jackson browne, ben harper and lindsey buckingham, as well as his fine line of electric and acoustic weissenborn-style lap guitars. Bill replaced the sides with aged mahogany, and reset the neck. I then took the guitar to kirk sand, of sand guitars in laguna beach, california, who finshed the back and sides with nitrocellulose lacquer, using the same materials for grain filler and sanding sealer that have been a tradition at martin for years. I bought a vintage-style om case from saga in san francisco, california to complete the package ( i still have the original canvas trap door case that the guitar came in, and it will be supplied to the winning bidder if requested). The top and back bracing are untouched and original, as well as the bridge, the celluloid nitrate pickguard and the open gear grover tuners (standard guitar-style tuners replaced the banjo tuners on this model in 1931). The ebony fingerboard still has the original "bar" frets, (14 frets clear of the body) and there is minimal wear. The mahogany "v" -shaped neck still has the original finish, and is straight. This period has the earliest examples of the gold martin decal, as the logo was originally just on the back of the headstock, and inside the body. This particular instrument still features the impressed logo on the back, as well as the gold decal. Also new during this period of change for martin is the pickguard and the "shaded" (commonly called sunburst)

   "Now foliks ... I am listing a most wonderful martin guitar....It is used and was abused and now is in need of careful and loving restoration....As you see from the photos....There are breaks but no missing parts...Where the neck meets the body it is broken and very loose...But the neck itself is in very good condition......There is a patch on the side and it is painted over...I do not know what has been done under the patch of paint."
   Looks like it was subjected to excessive heat while under tension which caused the braces under the neck to come loose. Which in turn lead to the neck collapsing into the body. Rosette is severed on treble side and badly bent and twisted on base side.
   Finish is very rough. Looks like it might be original and a burst

   "Straight from the grandson of the original owner but he took it 'in for repair' and had the brand that grandpa had put on the top with a homemade branding iron sanded off and oversprayed by a 'luthier' before we got to it. Other than that it's original finish on the crack free top. The back had a few hairline cracks repaired by this same 'luthier' who oversprayed it as well as some of the bass side where a couple of hairlines were repaired. But the sides do look good as does the whole darn guitar, providing you like the look of 75 years of an original owner playing the heck out of a guitar and scratching it up a bit in the process."

   "An early 14 fret 0 size guitar from the family of the original owner. This pre-war guitar came from the family of Holly Warner of Selkirk, NY, whose father owned guitar guita originally. The guitar features mahogany back, sides, top and neck with a brazilian rosewood fretboard and bridge. It also retains (what appear to be) the original bar frets, which have plenty of life left. The guitar is 100% original, no replaced components of any kind."
   "RECENT REPAIRS: The following work was done recently at Kovacik Guitars and Fretted Instrument Repair: neck reset, fret level/recrown/polish, top crack repair and set up."

   In the "Previous offerings" section
   "Made from the 2nd major production year of 14 fret O-18, this guitar retains a lot of the lightness of build and responsiveness of the sightly earlier 12 Fret O-18s. Mahogany, Adirondack Spruce, Solid headstock with Brazilian Rosewood (decals weren't used yet) and chip repair on back edge, Original Grover tuners are in the case pocket with Waverly tuners installed for ease of use, 1 3/4" nut width, Replacement bone nut, Ebony fingerboard wtih original snail shell dots, Converted to tang frets rather than troublesome bar stock frets, Black binding, Brazilian Rosewood butt wedge, Original ebony bridge with 2 3/8" string spread, Ebony hellcap, replacement bridge pins and endpin. Though originally without a pickguard, this guitar picked up a small ugly Kay shape pickguard (proabbly during the folk scare of the 1960s). Repair ace Alan Perlman had made a sightly larger replacement from vintage style plastic sheet stock that I got from Henry Stocek a few years ago. Other resotrations by Alan Perlman include: Neck reset and refret, closing top, side and back cracks, and a top splint at center line between bridge and tail. I've left a couple of thin fiberglass reinforcements from 1960s era side crack repairs in place. This guitar has a wonderful rich, smooth, and loud response. The treble strings really sing in the 9-14 fret area. This is a wonderfully versatile guitar available at a very affordable price due to the repairs. With recent reproduction vintage style case"

   Item #: 170150382635
   Purchased for $1299 by Buy It Now (BIN)
   "I've got too many guitars, and not enough money, so I'm selling a couple of my guitars. This auction is for a VERY ORIGINAL Martin 0-17 acoustic guitar, in great playing condition. All mahogany, serial number 53840. One "punch mark" on the lower bout has been professionally repaired, and the bridge has been reglued. Otherwise, the pick guard has not lifted, and there are no cracks anywhere. The neck is straight as a string, and the intonation is perfect. This is not a "closet queen", having been played for 74 years, so naturally the fretboard has plenty of wear, but the frets are level and buzz-free. This old guitar has extensive "buckle rash" and finish wear, but is light as a feather, and has the kind of pre-war sound that can't be duplicated. An old hardshelI case is included (could be original, but there's no way to tell) There's also a 1947 Gene Autry songbook, and a set of old Martin strings in the original box. All-in-all, this is a great way to touch the past with a great playing and collectable guitar. This will be professionally packed and shipped anywhere in the lower 48 states for a flat rate of $50. If not exactly as described, just return it in the original packaging within 3 days, and I'll return your money. I'll also be listing a beautiful (and rare) 00-42 in a week or two"

   "This is the guitar that all of the modern makers are trying to copy. Last pre-war production year for this model. 000 size body with mahogany back and sides, Adirondack spruce top, 1-3/4 inch nut with a V profile neck, ebony fingerboard and bridge, long scale at 25.4 inches. It has been played and show some playing wear as well as a couple of short repaired side cracks with spots of light overspray. No top or back cracks. Neck has been reset, frets are fine, tuners are original and the action is low and comfortable. Very lightweight guitar with a beautiful open clear sound. Its an extremely complex tone with lots of volume, clear trebles, and a strong focused bass. It has a quick and delicate sound that responds equally well to fingerstyle or a flatpick. Comes with a newer hardshell case"
   Asking Price: $15,300
   LOTS of scratches. Ebony nut.

   "You are looking at an 99.9% original 1934 Martin O 17 solid mahogany guitar (the .1 being a phillips head screw in one of the tuners, yes the tuners are original). The serial number is 56195. It is the 14 fret model and has bar frets. Those of you who know these guitars should notice that it is in good shape considering it's over 70 years old. The action is pretty good also considering the age with no buzzing, but could possibly use a set up from a vintage Martin pro if you're use to really low action. It has a few nicks and dings on the surface and a surface crack that starts at the bridge and runs to the bottom. It is only a surface crack, I could not feel it at all inside the body. The bridge also seems to be beginning to slightly pull from the body(I tried to photograph this but it didn't turn out to well). Like I said it's just beginning to, and I couldn't fit a .88 pick under it. It's a common problem for instruments this age, and this one is very fixable. I have played it and it doesn't effect the tuning or playability. It comes with what appears to be the original case(I have more photos of it if you would like to see more of it), which has seen its better days and the stitching is coming off the edges, but it still serves it purpose. I came across this guitar through a family member who had it stored in their closet for the better part of 10 years. Serious bidders only please. I will ship out as soon as payment is received. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have."
   Picture of neck block confirms serial number
   no stamp on back of peghead
   Tuner buttons likely NOT original. White and shaped somewhat like bells

   "Hello! For sale is an 018K Martin (Serial Number 56254) that was purchased in the early 1930's by the great, great niece of whiskey giant, Jim Beam. This guitar is from the collection of Richard Young, guitarist for the Grammy Award Winning, Kentucky Headhunters!"
   "Mr. Young has a letter from recent Beam family varifying the original owner and this letter is included with purchase of this one of a kind collector's dream! Also, a letter from Richard Young proving the current ownership will be included with purchase."
   "This guitar comes with it's original case, instruction book, strap, and Stevens slide. The case top has Hawaiian Teachers-Hollywood, California stenciled, but barley visible. The top around the bridge has had a repair by Joe Glaser of Nashville, Tennessee. Other than this, it is all original with a history from hell! This is such a rare find and the condition is incredible considering it's age and history."

   "Offered here is a 1936 pre-war martin 0-17, serial number 56754. it's a great guitar that needs a little work. the front edge of the bridge is broken as is seen in the photos. the nut needs replacing. there are five very tight cracks on the lower bout as pictured. the back has separated from the side on the upper bout, very easy fix. small chip in sound hole. and lastly the tuners are shot. other than that it shows wear consistent with it's age but is all in all very solid and will be a cool little guitar after a little attention. all the braces appear tight, the 14/20 neck has never been reset and is in great condition. the frets show little wear. no case"
   2 tuner buttons missing, one tuner is different from rest, buttons that are not missing are disintigrating

   "This guitar is NOT in playing condition and I know very little about guitars. I will try to describe it to the best of my ability and will start it at a very low price so everyone can get to bid on it. I believe that this would be a wonderful instrument if it was restored. This guitar is marked C F Martin Nazareth PA, stamped on the inside. There is no model number that I can find. It measures 39" high x 14 1/4" at the widest part and 10 3/4" at the widest of the top part. It is 18 7/8" length of the body. It is 3 7/8" thick. It looks like all mahogany except the strip below the string from the hole to the keys looks like rosewood. There are metal strings, the thinnest one is broken. The tuning keys - the metal parts are all here and in good condition, but the plastic knobs are all cracked and damaged. At one time there was a decal at the top that said Martin Co but it is nearly all gone. The top of this guitar is in all good condition - flat, no cracks. For the back of the guitar - as you will see in the pictures there are 2 glue joints that go down the back that are loose part way down. The bottom cover has come unglued on the corners as you will see in the pictures. As you can see, the finish is I believe the original finish but has scratches and spots where the finish is missing but no damage to the wood. This is not an electric guitar and I do not believe it ever was. I just do not know the proper names or terms to use to describe this. If you have any questions, I will try to answer them. This was found in an attic of an old house and I am selling it just as found. I am sure someone will know how to restore it properly"

   "This guitar shows normal light signs of playing time overall but much lighter wear than expected for this year. It has scratches on the face especially on the upper bass, the area on the treble soundhole is worn to wood, it shows chips on headstock and elsewhere, and other dings and mars. It had a pickguard crack, which our shop repaired. The action is slightly on the high side, but only after the 5th fret and there is some fret wear."

   "This original classic comes as is with the original case and a new hard case. The top and neck still hold their original finish while the sides and back were refinished following repair work. The bass side of the guitar was replaced in 1980. The pick guard has been recently reset by luthier, Leo Posh. Leo also closed up a small crack that was forming due to pick guard shrinkage. There are a couple of patches and small cracks on the back.
   This guitar is not in mint condition (as noted by the price). However, it plays very well and produces that rich original Martin tone that so many have tried to emulate. With the right work, its value will only increase"

   "This Martin C-1 has a Carved Spruce Top, raised black pickguard, bound top, mahogany back/side/neck, 14/20-fre rosewood fingerboard with white dot inlay, rosewood bridge/trapeze tailpiece, 3-per-side nickel Grover tuners (original equipment), in Sunburst finish, & Mfg. in 1934"
   "This would be a great addition to your guitar collection. Any guitarist would love this guitar's wonderful rounded tone. This guitar either needs the bridge replaced or repaired. You can see in one of the photos that the bridge is slightly broken at the 6th string. It actually would still work great, but the bridge will nut adjust up anymore on that side. The 6th string has fret buzz as a result. There is also a small piece of binding missing as pictured"
   "Also included in this auction is what I am told are the original tools that were included with it. As well as a set of Epiphone masterbuilt strings. The strings have been used, but they are vintage"
   "There are some playing scratches all over the guitar. This is to be expected with it's age"

   "Has original case,,but made cheap and thin. Has no cracks or holes in it. Alot of wear and light scracthes. Someone tried to put new tuning keys on the martin. Did not do a very good job,but they work,Yes it stays in tune and sounds good, but down at the end of the neck around 12th fret the strings start to get a little to high but you can still play as I play the guitar all the time. At the top as in the picture you will see a spot where a small piece of the surface wood by tuning keys is missing, It was replaced with some kind of wood putty. They did a good job, just need to find the matching stain color and you would never see it. If i was going to keep it I would take it to a guitar shop and reset neck and get the original tunning keys"

   "Here is a real treasure. 1934 Martin R-18 Guitar. Serial #58385. This guitar is an arched spruce top with f sound holes. Mahogany 2 piece back with mahogany sides. It sold for $55.00 in 1934. This model was first produced in 1933 and discontinued in 1941. Total production of this model was 1937 guitars. This guitar was bought new and played with an orchestra for many years during the 1940's. It was damaged and professionally repaired in the early 1960's, resulting in the starburst finish. Overall, this is a well loved and very playable instrument. The sound is incredible, very bright and long sustain. Action is very good and this guitar is a pleasure to play, much easier than most acoustics. The sound is only something that can come from a 75 year old Martin. The buyer will not be dissappointed with this wonderful guitar. Comes in it's original case and Certificate of Appraisal done by Don White of Bexley, Ohio in July of 1985. I can't get pictures to do justice of this instrument"
   F holes
   Based on description probably a refinish. The original R-18's were sunburst, but the burst wasn't as extreme. This one is very bright in the middle with almost no transition to dark. The bridge is the center of the bright circle
   Strings are incorrectly attached straight through rather than wrapped. Or, that part of the tail piece has been replaced. Hard to be sure as resolution in pictures is somewhat low
   Case is chipboard, it seems somewhat unlikely it would have survived all these years if original

   Hard to tell, but looks like black bordered decal on front
   No stamp on back of peghead
   "This is a 1934 Martin Archtop, serial# 59152. All mahogany. Original Grover butter bean tuners. I also believe the bridge and the case (complete with key) are original. This guitar has a nice chunky neck. There is some fret and fretboard wear. The pickgaurd and tailpiece do not look to be original. The finish on the guitar has many shiny spots, that I cannot explain. This guitar plays very well, with low string action and good bridge height"

   "About the guitar: It is all original and has considerable wear, but still plays well. I've taken several photos, but if you would like to see a close-up of a particular section, please email me. The guitar is in pretty good shape considering its 82 years old. It's been professionally evaluated as being in fair condition. It is my understanding there are only a very few of this pre-war 000-28 models around. The case is original, but the exterior of the case is pretty well beat up. This Martin guitar was purchased by my father in 1935 when he was 18 years old. When he passed away last year he left it and his other instruments to me."
   "Why it's being sold: I no longer play guitar, and I have two sisters who could really use the money (one is very ill with no medical insurance), otherwise it would stay in the family. Every bit of the proceeds of this sale will go to my sisters."

   "According to the C.F. Martin logbook it was built in on March 19, 1935 as one of a shop run of 14 D-28 guitars made during that immediate period. According to C.F. Martin historical records, there was no record in the logbook of it having been ordered with an oversized pickguard, but, it was explained to us, there are few records of such types of changes in the book. it would note it if the color of the top were sunburst, but not noted for a different pickguard. The condition is overall quite good . it shows normal dings, scrapes and scratches. It has the old style C.F. Martin gold decal peghead logo (without the black bordered letters) and it also has, on the back of the headstock, the C.F. Martin & Co., Nazareth, Pa. pressure stamp. It is known that Martin used that back-of-headstock stamp until mid-1935, and it is known that Martin phased in the peghead logo in mid-1932. On this one they did both. It is not altogether uncommon to find such transition period labeling on instruments made during this time."

   Replacement bridge

Comments:
   "It's great to have this second 1935 D-18 in the inventory this year. Compared to the last one, this guitar has had only minor repair work and is a much more even-voiced instrument. Honduras Mahogany, Adirondack Spruce top, Original riveted Grover tuners are in the case pocket and smooth new Waverly tuners make every day tuning a breeze, Vertical grain red Brazilian Rosewood headstock overlay with "C.F. Martin" decal, Replacement bone nut, 1 3/4" nut width, Ebony fingerboard with snail shell dots, Black body binding, Original bridge with new ivory saddle, Period-correct bridge pins, Original pickguard, Black stap button installed in neck heel.
   Repairs include: Reglue loose pickguard and outside position pickguard crack, Reglue bridge, Reset neck and refret, Repair partial heel crack and touch up finish in the immediate area, Dress the fingerboard by filling in the worn areas of fingernail wear in the lower fret positions, Rebuild underside of fingerboard extension that had been sanded to a tapered condition during a previous pre-neck reset refretting, Light french polish in worn areas of the top in the fingerboard and pickguard areas as a preventive measure against accumulation of grease and dirt. The french polish varnish is removeable with alcohol."
   "There is some upper arm wear on the top at the lower bout, some minor Levi rivet indentation on the back, and the usual collection of small dings and scrapes. No capo wear on neck. Fine finish crazing from its decades of playing Ukrainian folk music in cold of Canada. This guitar has a large, powerful voice that is without some of the harshness of the last 1935 D-18. The voice is harmonically very rich and musical, the response very even from string to string. This guitar is a real joy to play for flatpicking melodies or as a rhythm instrument in a group. A real find. With original hardshell case that has suffered from the rigors of use."
   Asking Price:: $59,500

   In the "Previous offerings" section
   "This late 1935 beast of a D-18 is one of the first 150 14 fret D-18s made. It's the one that started me on my prewar D-18 quest since I bought it at Union Grove Music in June of 1979. Next to it was a mint conditon 1944 D-18 (worth about $60,000.00 now) that sounded like a strung-up cardboard box compared to this guitar. Adirondack Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides, No C.F. Martin stamp in the back of headstock as that featured disappeared in mid-1935, Brazilian Rosewood headstock overlay, 1 3/4" nut width, Big V-shape neck profile, Ebony fingerboard with dots, Black body binding, Black and white rosette, Ebony bridge with original bridge pins (those were very difficult to locate), Original red turtle-oid pickguard, Ebony heelcap, Oversize ebony endpin. The original restoration was performed by either Paul Hostetter or Hideo Kamimoto in 1975 (I've been told both ways). Other restorative work has been performed by Al Milburn and Hideo Kamimoto. These repairs and resorations have included: TOP - Splint inlay of 3 treble side cracks, gluing 5 other treble side cracks. All of these are from one impact at the widest part of the treble side lower bout. Repair of top cracks on either side of fingerboard and installation of the flat brace by Hideo Kamimoto in 2006. New ebony bridge with drop-in saddle made in 1998 by Al Milburn. Small bridge plate cap installed by Al Milburn to give proper seating for string balls on the worn original bridge plate. SIDES - Repaired tear in treble side waist, Two repaired cracks near top edge of widest part of treble side lower bout, Small triangular addition on treble side of endpin, Small crack near back edge of widest part of bass-side lower bout. BACK - The back is completely crack free. The only back marks are near the neck block area from careless clamping by a former Fifth String San Francisco repairman (arrrgh). NECK - New Waverly round button tuners. I've looked unsuccessfuly since 1979 for this kind of original Grover tuner to r

   Item #300204394295
   "Here is your chance Martin fans to pick up a solid 0-17. This guitar is built like a tank. This particular guitar has plenty of life left in it as it has held together beautifully. The body doesn't have any big dents or dings, but it does have (2) areas of small scratches. The are small scratches on the belt buckle area and there is a smaller area of scratches on the bottom edge of the body. There is also an area just south of the pickguard that has seen some hard strumming. These things just add some character to this guitar"
   "This 0-size has a nice natural finish with all solid mahogany construction and scalloped bracing. It has a 14-fret neck, 20-fret Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with ivoroid dot inlays, the frets and fretboard look like they are in excellent shape. The bridge is in good shape and it appears to be Brazilian rosewood. There are nickel Grover tuners with oval metal buttons. There are no structural issues with this guitar. The neck is nice and straight and does not appear to have ever been messed with"

   "This fine prewar Martin hawaiian has avoided conversion to spanish style maintaining its flush frets, high nut and straight saddle. Easy conversion by a qualified luthier! The photos tell the story as this is an exceptionally clean example. As for tone (which, of course, is personal preference) this Martin is sweet and loud with an almost Weissenborn bottom end . There are no cracks, repairs, etc. The only cosmetic issue to point out are the nicks on the bottom to the left of the missing end pin as seen in the photo. The rest of the guitar has very light age consistent wear in the form of nicks, dings and scratches. The guitar definitely spent more time under a bed than being played! It comes in a non-original chipboard case."
