1930s Maurer Project

1930s Maurer Project

Come all ye luthiers, pro and nascent, and those who sense a terrific deal; here’s your chance. I’m sure you’re familiar with the Larson Brothers creations of the 1930s, the only pre-war steel-string guitars ever to be of Martin quality, some of the best of them having had the Maurer label. This is a full 000-size instrument, quite rare, with X-braced spruce top, mahogany back and sides, 12-fret neck with 1-7/8” nut width and 25” scale. I’ve had it, in its present state, for over fifty years, just never seemed to find the time to get to restoring it. As you can see in the photos, the neck is off; the fingerboard, ebony, has been cut with the end piece present; the dovetail has been cut from the end of the neck; the segment of spruce under the fingerboard end, along with the neck block, is gone. Nut and tuners, no idea, though they’re minor. The ebony bridge and bone saddle are original and quite nice. The finish is original. This is a terrific restoration project and should make an outstanding guitar when completed. Original Maurers like this have been known to bring more than $8,000; this one, as is, for $1250 w/ssc
