Up for auction is a nice 1921 Martin 00-42 acoustic guitar. Guitar comes with a non original but vintage case for protection. Serial number is 16258.

The guitar is set up and ready to play with the action at the 12th fret on the bass side at .090'' and the treble side at .080''. Guitar is X braced although they are light braces. This guitar was braced for use with gut strings, you can also use silk steel strings or extra light steel strings.All the work was done by the same luthier in my area and he has taken great steps and time in bringing back this fine vintage Martin guitar. Included with the auction will be a CD diary of pictures from the first day until the end of the restoration project. Also included is a written appraisal by George Gruhn of Gruhn Guitars. Mr. Gruhn places the fair market value at $15,000, my reserve on the auction is set much lower than his appraisal.Guitar has 12 fret with a slot head mahogony neck, ebony fretboard with white binding and snowflake abolone inlays, white ivoroid binding on the top and back edges of the body, abalone trim around the edge of the top and soundhole, ebony pyramid bridge, Adirondack spruce top with scalloped bracing nd Brazilian rosewood back,sides and peghead veneer.While the guitar is not in like new...
