Here's a honey of a vintage Martin - an Very Good+ vintage condition, ONE OWNER, 1946 Martin 00-17. This one just absolutely sings, and plays perfectly, thanks to a recent pro neck reset and full setup by Corwin Custom Guitars. It certainly shows the expected signs of cosmetic wear for an instrument of this age, but NO BREAKS or structural weirdness (there are various nicks, scratches, dings that can be seen in the photos). The frets are extremely clean and even. The worst of the wear (again, only cosmetic) is on the back of the neck, but it truly does not encumber playing at all, and instead, feels like a well-worn-in neck that's hard to put down.
To the best of our knowledge, it is in all original condition, aside from a set of 50s tuners.
This Martin was given as a graduation gift to the late former mayor of Topeka, KS by his father. Cool story and even cooler guitar.
Includes a non-original, but period-correct Martin chipboard case. For shipping, especially to international buyers, please inquire about packing it in a hardshell case and sending the chipboard case separately.
