This is how you love to find one of these! Virtually unplayed! It shows only the slightest wear, as it was sitting under a bed for 50+ years (with detuned nylon strings!), it was bought by a lady who did not learn to play. It had a fair bridge reglue long ago, with bolts, which missed anything critical. Nothing even visible on the top!! One slight, not moving, open or separated, crack in the back near the treble waist. There is also some checking on the back. So we strung her up with 12 gauge bronze strings, and the consensus was that since the bridge needs re-glueing anyway, either re-inforce the top slightly, or reset the neck... either one (especially the re-set would probably be enough), but figure on both for safety's sake. It sounded fantastic, and we were surprised at how loud and full it sounded when up to pitch with 12's. So here we have a 2 owner guitar, that needs some work, which will be invisible, and then it's a super clean, stellar, top of the line 00-45! With the original Hardshell case! It's consigned, and we have tried to set the price low, so that with a maximum of $1500 worth of work, and a little time, you'd probably have the world's best 00-45 from the 1920's! Check photos and sound clip (average players, not Vince Gill!!!). E-mail for more photos. I have had the question as to wether the guitar has any overspray, and the only area that is in any way questionable is the headstock. There is no lacquer in the neck joint, or fingerboard on body. 3 people have told me that Martin would do it as a matter of course if guitars were sent back. Please study the photos closely or ask for more.Price reduced, again!!! motivated seller!Final price drop!!!
