1949 C.F. Martin 00-17
The mahogany topped Martin pre-1950 is aging into becoming a tremendously relevant instrument, particularly in relation to today's folk/indie scene. It has a dry, simple voice with great volume and bags of character. It can bark or whisper without the involved backtones and overtones that we find in sitka topped guitars. They are not a challenge to play and control and yet offer a tone that is unique and beguiling......one that makes you listen thru a simplicity and crispness that is really endearing. This example is all original and in lovely condition. Recent neck set and set up.
