1928 Martin 5-17T Tenor
Tremendous easy project and a total bargain for a beautiful pre-war Martin. A terrific tenor guitar, all solid Honduran mahogany and top everything throughout, Martin all the way. Original bar frets; Grover “no-band” geared banjo tuners with Ivoroid buttons; ebony nut; Brazilian rosewood fingerboard and bridge with original real (uncut!) ivory saddle; three original black bridge pins. Shows earlier attempt at repair of one side crack, seems solid; evidence of minor incomplete finish touchup prior to bridge reglue by parties unknown, stopped just in time; a few loose braces, piece of cake. No case. $995 as is.
