1924 Vintage Martin Tiple w/ Case
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-06-28)
Price : US $464.00
This auction is for a vintage 1924 Martin T-18 Tiple that is in very nice original condition. A letter on C.F. Martin letterhead is included in this auction and it verifies the type of tiple this is as well as the date of manufacture, 1924. The letter is signed by C.F. Martin. The tiple comes in its original case, which is structurally sound and does latch, but has a few abrasions. (See pictures.) I have owned this instrument since the early 1980's. The tiple does not have any cracks on the body or neck. The line that appears on the lower part of the front of the tiple is pencil. A small portion of the face of the tiple has dried somewhat and appears light in one of the photographs. The bridge of the tiple cracked and broke off in the mid 1980's. I had it repaired (glued) and the music store that fixed it recommended that, since I do not play, I should leave it unstrung. It has remained that way since then. You can see the crack line in one of the photographs. As referenced in the letter, one of the tuners was also replaced in the 1960's. I still have the original tuner that was replaced as well as another new tuner. Apparently tuners were sold in pairs at that time. I will include in this auction a complete set of tiple strings and a partial set. I will also include some picks and tuner hardware.
Please feel free to inquire with any questions prior to biddding. Buyer pays shipping, handling, and insurance. %
