Here we have a Martin 2-17 from 1927. This model is notable because it is one of the first X braced guitars, designed for steel strings. This guitar has great potential, but it is not for the faint of heart. The guitar needs at minimum a neck set and the replacement bridge reglued. However, if you really want to make it right- a more historically accurate bridge, neck set and new maple bridge plate would be in order. If you check the pic with the mirror inside the guitar, you will see an oversized rosewood bridge plate that some well meaning but ill advised repairman stuck in there. Getting it out and replacing with a maple bridge plate will not be easy, but it can certainly be done. Here is a chance to get a fantastic, historically significant instrument for a song- if you are up to the challenge. We will include a non original soft case.
