Martin 2-17 #25 Guitar Mahogany, 1930 ✓

Martin 2-17 #25 Guitar Mahogany, 1930  ✓

Here we’re looking at a Martin 2-17 #25 built during early 1930 in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, showing a 1929 feature – a straight saddle. Not long after this guitar was built, Martin shifted to slanted saddles, giving the bass strings a little more length for intonation purposes. Apparently 449 were built during 1930 with this saddle, and 50 with the slanted saddle.
