Description

This is a treasure. A well preserved 1930 Martin 000-45, quite simply one of the most collectible Martin Guitars ever made. Martin only made 21 of these in 1930 and only 341 in total. This pre war sweetheart embodies that Holy Grail tone all guitarist long for and all builders hold in esteem. Every note is alive and complete. This one plays like a new guitar and appears to be all original but for a pro refinish and proper replacement bridge. We are honored to offer this rare and special 1930 Martin OOO-45.

We all feel very lucky to get to know this guitar if even for a short while. Just a moments play and you realize exactly why Martin Guitars from this era are held in such high regard. Big round bass, clear, present mids and bold and singing trebles make this as complete a guitar as a player could ever hope for. Collector's will also be delighted by this vintage pre-war Martin 000-45, it is after all a Holy Grail of guitars.
 
This is my favorite Martin guitar, lovingly brought back to life by a master craftsman. It plays great and sounds wonderful. It's not often that I get to play these old beauties, but when I do, I can see why they are so hard to find and are so valuable.
