1950 Martin 0-17T

Serial # 114751. A perfect guitar, in perfect condition. This sixty-plus year old tenor has no cracks, no reglued or repaired braces, and a perfect set-up. Its finish is in beautiful shape, its bridge is full thickness, and its tuners work very smoothly. Original ebony nut and ivory saddle have never been removed, and original frets are largely unworn. The tuner buttons, bridgepins and end pin were all replaced by us with vintage-correct reproductions by Antique Acoustics.

We have the instrument strung in an octave-mandolin tuning (GDAE), and it sounds beautiful this way. 23" Scale length, 1-7/32" nut.

With period chipboard case.
