1-11/16″ width at nut / Refinished
This all Mahogany 1945 Martin 00-17 has been expertly refinished and it sounds great. This guitar has a lot going for it; it’s a great player and it sounds really nice. Looks to be the original open-back Grover tuners, but the buttons have possible been changed. The neck is in great shape.
The Rosewood peghead overlay has the “Martin & Co.” decal at the top. Bone nut. There is a Rosewood fingerboard with small dot inlays and small side dot position markers on the bass side of the fingerboard. The newer frets are in good shape with only the smallest signs of playing. The first three frets show filled pits where nails most likely scraped the wood out. Original pickguard. very simple sound hole rosette consisting of black/white/black alternating lines. The top is in good shape and has one repaired Five inch crack off on the treble side about 45 degrees down from the end of the bridge. There are a couple a bold scratch marks along the top as well. K&K pure mini pickup installed. The Mahogany neck has a rosewood heel cap. There is some flame figure on the back of the guitar. The bridge is probably a newer Rosewood bridge with black bridge pins and a cut-through bone saddle. The end pin is also where the jack comes out for the pickup.
This is a great playing guitar that comes with a hard case.
