vintage acoustic guitar 91373205561494730 Vintage 1931  Pre war Martin 00 21 / 110 Made In 1931

UP FOR SALE IS A PIECE OF HISTORY, 1931 PRE- WAR MARTIN 00-21 SERIAL NUMBER 473XX. IN 1931 THEY ONLY MADE 110 OF THESE GUITARS.WHEN I BOUGHT THIS GUITAR IT WAS MISSING THE BINDING,TUNERS AND SOMEONE HAD A BAD FINISH JOB ON IT. THIS GUITAR TRAVELED WITH ME TO  C.F.MARTIN CO. BACK IN SEPT 09 FOR A 8 MONTH RESTORATION PROCESS. THEY REPLACED THE BINDING,BRIDGE,TUNERS,SOME OF THE BAR FRETS,ALL WITH VINTAGE CORRECT PARTS. GUITAR ALSO HAD A NECK RESET USING PERIOD CORRECT GLUE.THE STRANGE THING ABOUT THIS GUITAR IS IT HAS THE MARTIN LOGO ON THE BACK AND THE FRONT OF HEADSTOCK. WHEN I QUESTIONED C.F.MARTIN ABOUT THIS THEY SAID GUITAR SERIAL NUMBER 47572,JIMMY KEGNAY? GUITAR HAS BOTH LOGOS ON IT,AS THEY HAVE HIS GUITAR. ALSO THIER RECORDS SHOW THAT SERIAL NUMBER 48938 HAS NO LOGO ON FRONT,BUT GUITAR # 47519 HAS BOTH LIKE MINE. THE FOLKS AT MARTIN TOLD ME BETWEEN 45XXX AND 48XXX IT WAS HIT OR MISS WITH GUITARS HAVING BOTH LOGOS,I THOUGHT THAT WAS COOL INFO. ANYHOW THIS GUITAR WAS FINISHED BY THEM USING CORRECT NITRO. BRAZILIAN ROSEWOOD BACK AND SIDES,ADIRONDACK RED SPRUCE TOP.THIS IS AS GOOD AS IT GETS.I HAVE THE ORIGINAL BRIDGE AND THE CASE THAT CAME WITH GUITAR.I DON'T BELIEVE THAT CASE IS ORIGINAL.THE CASE THE GUITAR IS IN NOW IS A 5 PLY 525 CABERNET  TKL MARTIN CASE.YOU CAN HAVE BOTH IF YOU WISH.THIS GUITAR SOUNDS AWESOME AND PLAYS SUPER.THIS GUITAR IS A FINE 1931 PRE-WAR MARTIN.


I WILL SHIP THIS GUITAR JUST ABOUT ANYWHERE OUTSIDE THE USA,IT WILL SHIP BY UPS OR FED EX AT BUYERS WISH.LESS THAN 20 POSITIVE FEEDBACKS EMAIL PRIOR TO BIDDING OR YOUR BID WILL BE CANCELLED.EMAIL WITH ANY QUESTION YOU MIGHT HAVE.FREE SHIPPING IN USA.


I ALSO HAVE ALL THE EMAILS FROM MARTIN TO ME AND ME TO THEM ABOUT WORK DONE ON GUITAR. I know refinishing takes from the value of guitar,but this is still a 79 year old Martin. A new 00-21 Kingsston trio cost more than what I want for this pre-war one.
