Martin 1930 00-17 Acoustic Guitar, All Mahogany - Pre-Owned


Sold Make an enquiry


1930s Martins are some of the most revered guitars in the world and for good reason. This 00-17 is from the humble yet impressive 17 series, sporting an all-mahogany body. This is a relatively rare 12-fret example that's full of dust bowl charm, and still provides a rich, dynamic tone suitable for fingerstyle guitarists and folk singers.  

This guitar is punchy, yet still retains the woody mellowness intrinsic to all-mahogany guitars.  It shines when played fingerstyle, but can also withstand light flatpicking. This is an amazing opportunity to own a rare pre-war Martin at a great price. It plays very comfortably up the neck and has excellent balance across the strings.

Note: This guitar has had finish work done both to the top and back of the instrument, and TJ Thompson reset the neck.  Please call or email us in Nashville before purchasing this guitar for an in-hand description.
