1947 Martin 00-18
1947 Martin 00-18 in very good condition. All original with the exception of the tuners which look to have been changed in the 1950s to Grover G-98s. Has the cool Bergstrom Kellerman Music form Honolulu Territory of Hawaii. Bergstrom was one of the biggest Martin dealers in the country and took full advantage of the Hawaiian music craze of the 30s. This guitar came to us from Hawaii and we suspect it spent its entire life there up to this point. We reset the neck and cleaned up the frets. There is one older repaired top crack. The finish is all original and has developed a wonderful orange patina. The neck is a large round shape with little taper to it. It has a strong fundamental with nice even overtones. It is well balanced and even all over the neck. Includes hard case.
