Vintage Original Grover Open Backs Martin Butterbeans
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2007-11-27)
Price : US $99.00
Lovely old set of 3 3 Grover Individual Tuners...nice patina and in fine working order ! My research suggests these to be c.1940/early 50s G-98s. Unless one is a pretty heavy duty Martin expert (I'm not),it seems a bit dicey to precisely date these babies and designate the models,altho in general,I'm told 'Style 21' and above...also on some D-18s but that may be myth (??) These came off a '53 Southern Jumbo so that doesn't help (& wrong keys for it) The SJ is NOT presently for sale & its rough but I'll probably bring it to the Nashville Guitar Show Dec. 1. Anyhow...back to the Grovers. I am an honest seller and not wishing to misrepresent anything. (Please note my e bay track record) So...if I have something innaccurate here,pls bring it to my attention & I'll post it. These are in excellent condition,have visible side seam, and come w/ what I believe are the original Phillips style mounting screws. The bushings are NOT original...(Stew-Mac) As always,Satisfaction Guaranteed. Flat rate shipping via USPS Priority is $5.95 for the USA and 11USD for overseas.

Oh,also-I know the photos look rather washed out...sorry. The flash made them look gold;to get rid of that unwanted effect,the background color went away but color of the metal (nickel ?) is still quite true & realistic.
