1959 Martin 00-18E Steel String Acoustic No Longer Available

This is a pretty rare, 1959 Martin 00-18E steel string acoustic.

The 00-18E was built from 1959 to 1964, in response to the quest for volume, and this is one of the first. It uses the 00 style body, with the 18 construction – spruce top, mahogany back and sides – but the top is thicker and uses heavier bracing.

Gibson Army Navy Special Model GY, around 1920 SOLD

Gibson Army Navy Special Model GY, around 1920 SOLD

The Gibson Army Navy Special, Model GY, was a nearly flat-top version of the L-Jr. archtop (the top has a slight arch but is not carved) and was built between 1918 and 1921. It was targeted to American servicemen during World War 1 and intended for sale at the local PX.

These instruments are fairly rare and have often been played, a lot – like this one. This is an interesting, quite playable, good sounding guitar with a definite history.
