1953 Martin 00-17
A very clean 1953 Martin 00-17 just came through the door. Lovely warm tone, and the perfect size for playing on the couch.
Assorted dings and scratches, but this guitar is overall in fantastic condition. The neck is very straight, but does have some relief in it. The action is at 6/64" and 8/64", and the saddle is quite low, so the guitar will need a neck reset relatively soon, but it plays very comfortably in the first position. At some time in the past, someone installed an ebony overlay on top of the original bridgeplate (see photo). Nut and saddle are not original.
Soft shell case included.
