Weekly POTD Roundup: Exchange

In case you missed it, here are the pre-owned Exchange guitars that were featured in this week's Pick of the Day lineup!

Martin 1931 C-2 Conversion, Brazilian Rosewood & Red Spruce - Pre-Owned

There is a little bit of hidden magic within every Martin C-2 conversion, and this 1931 example exhibits the sought after tonality that only comes from a C-2 conversion done right.  The C-2 was originally a roundhole archtop  hybrid design produced by Martin in the early 1930s containing a carved arched top, paired with the back and sides of a flattop. The model never quite rose to prominence due to the tonal nature of its construction. Without the punch and power of a guitar with a carved back, and lacking the sustain and warmth of a flattop instrument, the C-2 was quickly forgotten about when Martin discontinued their archtop models during World War II.


PRS Private Stock Angelus Cutaway Martin Simpson Signature, Cocobolo & Adirondack Spruce - Pre-Owned

The PRS Private Stock team seamlessly incorporated Martin Simpson’s input for this Angelus Cutaway signature model. With a beautiful book-matched set of private stock cocobolo back and sides, and an Adirondack spruce top, this guitar produce an incredibly articulate and open tone, with a high end shimmer. The English folk guitar master’s custom neck profile, string spacing, and neck width, paired with a comfortable cutaway construction, give this guitar premium playability.


Thomas Fredholm OM, Indian Rosewood & European Spruce - Pre-owned

Swedish luthier Thomas Fredholm has been crafting everything from dulcimers to steel-string guitars for over 25 years, and this Thomas Fredholm OM is a perfect example of what one can expect from one of his masterfully built guitars. Its old growth European Spruce top, as well as its old growth Indian Rosewood back and sides, conjoined by Hide Glue throughout, creates an instrument with all of the tonal characteristics one desires in an OM style guitar.
