This is a vintage 1948 Martin 00-17 in simply fantastic condition.  The S/N is 105618.  It was originally purchased used in 1952 from Ted Brown Music in Tacoma, Washington by my wife's deceased husband.  In 1974, I acquired it by right of marriage and for the life of me, I cannot learn to play a guitar.  When I acquired it, there was a small dent through the wood at the curved base.  In 1974, I sent this guitar to the Martin Factory repair rep. in Bakersfield, California.  He repaired the 'hole', by making a plug that is approximately 1 inch by 3 inches in the curved portion of the base (see picture 6).  There is a picture of this area, but the repair is so good, it is nearly un-noticable in the picture,and hard to find with the naked eye.  At that time, the Rep. offered me $750.00, instead of returning it.  I still thought I could learn to play.  When he completed the repair he also refinished the entire guitar, hence there are no dings or scratches.  The neck is straight and the fret board has no warpage.  A friend who was lead guitar for the Ventures in the 1960's has played this instrument and marveled at the tonal quality.  Someone needs to play it.  It will be shipped with a cheap case that it has been in, in my closet.  Bid with confidence.
