C. F. Martin 000-45 Steel String Guitar, 1942

C. F. Martin 000-45 Steel String Guitar, 1942

In terms of provenance, this guitar has had three owners and was used in a popular band during the 1950s. It has had an amount of work over the decades, some of it significant. One side appears to have been replaced, and the top has had a section replaced. This work was done very cleanly and may have been performed by Martin at their factory, though they have no record of it. Recently, in our shop, it has been refretted, had the first-position mother of pearl snowflake marker replaced, and received a full set up. It plays very well, and has a full, rich, even tone. The tonal nature of Brazilian Rosewood (denser than Indian) is evident in an slight added clarity.

SOLD!!! C. F. Martin OM-45 Marquis Steel String Guitar, 2004

SOLD!!! C. F. Martin OM-45 Marquis Steel String Guitar, 2004

The C. F. Martin OM-45 Marquis is a top of the line instrument, built like the Golden Era line but with Indian instead of Brazilian Rosewood. It would be the crown jewel in anyone’s guitar collection! The top and its vintage-scalloped bracing are Adirondack Spruce. The nut and saddle are definitely special, made of fossilized Ivory. This is a 45 style guitar, so it uses an abalone shell liner for the perimeter and soundhole, Snowflake fingerboard inlay set and Martin headstock logo. The neck is mahogany with a bound ebony fingerboard. And, there’s a K & K pickup installed!
