~1935 martin 1-T tenor

1930s Martin 1-T tenor ukulele Hard to put a fine point on ukes from this era, but by the tuner hardware this uke falls in the 1927-1942 range...so we'll call it 30s. The Martin 1-T is the second largest size in the uke family, having a lower bout width of 9" and a 17" scale. This example has been around the block once or twice and while it hasn't suffered significantly it does have two...

1952 martin D-18

1952 Martin D-18 SN. 127480 This D-18 is one of the biggest and best sounding of any that has ever come into the shop. The guitar's last owner was the writer/editor Art Dudley, who wrote for Listener, Stereophile (where he was an editor) and also for some of our favorite guitar magazines. In fact, if you read the great article from 2007 in Fretboard Journal #5 that was about Tony Rice's...

~1880 Martin 0-28

1880s Martin 0-28 w/coffin case excellent original condition 19th century guitars aren't exactly rare...when Martin began serializing their guitars in 1898 they estimated that they had built about 8000 guitars. What is rare is to find one that is in as cosmetically clean original condition as this example. This 0-28 guitar dates from the 1880s and is entirely original including the coffin...

2015 Kovacik Guitars Pre-war D-18 style

2015 Kovacik Guitars #70 pre-war D-18 style guitar This guitar was built 5 years ago for a local customer who has since developed some shoulder pain issues that make the reach around the dreadnought body difficult. The guitar has some design aspects that echo Martin's pre-war guitars (forward-shifted/scalloped X bracing, red spruce top, ebony fret board and bridge, 1 3/4 nut width) and some...

1964 C.F. Martin & Co. 000-28C steel string conversion

Serial number 194406. I converted this guitar from the original nylon string specs to steel string back in 2002. The guitar received a new European spruce top with scalloped 5/16" gauge traditional X bracing and style 28 rosette and herringbone top trim. The neck was replaced with a factory made (assembled, carved, fretted, inlaid with abalone dot position markers and finished) neck with a...
