Up for sale is a stunning and well kept 1948 Martin 0-17 fully mahogany acoustic guitar. I love the ’40s and ’50s era mahogany Martins and this is absolutely one of the nicer examples we’ve seen recently. Entirely original less replaced tuner buttons and bridge pins. This instrument is in excellent condition for its age with no top, back, or side cracks but does show some finish checking, wear, and tear. Pro setup in-house with comfortable action measuring 3.5mm on the bass side and 2.5mm on the treble at the 12th fret. There is roughly 2mm on the saddle to come down if needed. Comes complete with an aftermarket hardshell case.

Comments: Stunning '48 0-17 in its original Natural finish!
