VINTAGE 1920 MARTIN ACOUSTIC GUITAR. GREAT SHAPE!! Serial # 14816 Marked inside looking back under neck. Also marked inside guitar on wood: C. F. Martin & Co. Nazareth, Pa. and again stamped on the back of the headstock. The tuners look to be completely original..I believe they are ivory. It is missing one of the ivory ends, but the tuners all still work. This guitar needs no work or repairs to play. It has a gorgeous sound, unbelievably strong for its size. It has beautiful inlay..real mother of pearl on the neck. The wood is in excellent shape. I believe at some point the pickguard was added, but it had to have been done before 1965 based on what the family knows. It has a gorgeous mahogany back which gives it a rich tone. This is truly a vintage guitar and represents Martin's finest. Frets are perfect, neck is straight. Simply incredible. This instrument belonged to my friend's great uncle and I hope that we can find a good home for it. A musician's dream. Good Luck! I confirmed the age of the guitar with C.F. Martin & Company...1920..absolutely.
