1932 Martin 5-17T

Serial # 51519. A beguiling little tenor, with all kinds of built in inspiration. It's a small instrument that's tuned to C, and has a sweetness, sustain, and rich warmth to its voice. A difficult instrument to set down, the guitar is very easy to play, and about as comfortable a size as one could imagine.

Crack free and in excellent condition, with no repairs to any of the braces or original bridge plate. Refretted professionally, new bone nut, replaced bridgepins and end pin. Original bridge, saddle, tuners, and finish. Beautifully set up. 11-1/4" wide body, 23" scale length, 14 frets to the body, 1-3/16" nut width.

With original chipboard arch-top case
