C. F. Martin & Co / 00-17 / 1956 / Guitar For Sale

What a great guitar ... an original Martin 00-17 from 1956. Completely made of beautiful mahogany.

These kind of vintage Martin guitars are popular among steel string guitars. At that time Martin guitars were still built in limited numbers. Selected high-quality materials were used for each instrument.

This guitar sounds so wonderfully bluesy and would be a wonderful instrument for a jazz/blues guitarist. The sound is very sweet and warm, with the shine of a small bodied guitar without losing the warmth. Very direct response, focused projection, but without being overly trebly.

Furthermore, it has a nice vintage character to the sound, this is enhanced by the fact that the guitar has a nice matte refinish which gives the sound incredibly good unfolding potential. 

The condition of this guitar is really good ... a luthier has closely examined this guitar

The guitar has a patch on the lower bout from a previously installed pickup system that has been removed.

A neck reset has been done and the action is perfect. The neck is straight and the frets are in good condition.

It comes with a newer hardshell case!
