 Vintage (S/N 108017 -- 1948) Martin Tenor Guitar, Model 5-17T.  Mahogany top, back, and sides.  Nice woody tone.  So far as i know, the guitar is all original, except for bridge pins (which are new basswood).  That includes original finish.  Although there are several finish cracks and minor dings, i have not found any body cracks.  The 'major' defect is that a small piece of wood is missing around the sound hole, as you can see most clearly in the third picture.  I have silk & steel strings on it, and usually had it tuned to the four middle strings of a regular guitar (A D G B), but it could of course use tenor tuning, or a variety of other tunings, due to the typical short tenor scale.  This special guitar would be a great addition to a vintage collection.  The original case, though severely worn and suffering from duct tape 'repairs', is serviceable and included.  Approximate specifications are
Scale:  23'
Nut Width:  1 3/16'
Lower Bout Width:  11 1/4'
Upper Bout Width:  8 1/4'
Body Length:  15 3/4'
Total Length:  34'
12th fret action (base side):  3/16'

Shipment to U.S only.  Alaska & Hawaii shipping fees likely will be more than that quoted; contact me prior to bidding.
