This 1926 Martin 00-28 is amazing. In Very Good condition, especially considering it is nearly 100 years old, it has no top or back cracks. It has had one professionally repaired and cleated side crack, as well as a neck reset, a fresh refret (the playability is excellent here), and new pyramid bridge, all done by the highly respected luthier T.J. Thompson. It has also had a minor French polish touch up on the bare wood pick area of the top. It has a stunning sound and incredible resonance. Original tuners. A vintage beauty, this 1926 Martin 00-28 comes with a newer hard case.

Part of their Performing Artist series, this Martin DCPA4 Siris features a Performing Artist neck profile, giving it fast and comfortable playability. Made with a less common tonewood, Siris, it has a colorful sound and resonant mids. The back has solid Siris wings with an East Indian Rosewood wedge, a beautiful combination that gives this guitar a great look. It has a solid Sitka Spruce top, and Fishman F1 Analog electronics onboard, making this guitar ready to plug in and play. It even has a built-in tuner. This Martin DCPA4 Siris comes with a hardshell case.
This Martin OM-21 is a beauty. A modern, more slender High Performance neck makes it incredibly smooth to play, and its 00-14 body shape is very resonant. The result is a great guitar from top to bottom. It has a Sitka Spruce top and East Indian Rosewood back and sides, a surprisingly powerful low-end, and a natural, woody tone. Perfect for the fingerstyle player but great for strumming too. This Martin OM-21 comes with an upgraded hardshell case.
This 12-String Acoustic/Electric Martin D-12 X1AE is a great value for the player looking to take up the 12-string, or expand their on-stage options. Loaded with Fishman Sonitone electronics, it has a solid Sitka Spruce top, with high pressure laminate Mahogany back and sides. Full-bodied sound with that twelve string jangle, this guitar has a robust tone and plays well. And of course, this Martin D-12 X1AE comes with a free setup from our expert repair shop. Case available.
Go "green"! This Martin SWDGT Smartwood features a solid Sitka Spruce top with Cherry wood back and sides and a Mahogany, low-profile neck. It has a Katalox fingerboard and bridge (a Mexican hardwood). The Cherry and Katalox woods in this model originated in forests managed in a sustainable and ecologically responsible manner. The top and braces are from reclaimed pulp logs. What will they think of next. Its nice binding and great looking headstock finish off this cool Martin SWDGT Smartwood. Comes with Martin hard case.
This vintage 1937 Martin 00-18H is a rare and wonderful guitar, in Very Good condition. The H is for Hawaiian style set up, with a straight saddle and flat bar frets, but the guitar has been beautifully converted. The neck has been correctly reset and the fingerboard has a correct radius and nice, clean bar frets. The bridge is a correct replacement, with proper compensation for plectrum playing. The finish is all original, with minor nicks and scratches. This 00-18 has an exceptional clear, clean tone and is quick and responsive whether playing with fingers or a pick. Original soft shell case is included. Serial #67385. Questions on this 1937 Martin 00-18H? Just give us a call at 1-800-747-9980 or email us at - Jim B.

This vintage 1945 Martin D-28 Herringbone is a true beauty - guitars this nice don't show up every day. The Brazilian here is reminiscent of the wonderful quarter-sawn wood from the early 30s and the Sitka Spruce top has a nice medium wide grain pattern. The body is crack-free and the finish here is all original. It shows minor nicks, scratches and weather checking common to a great guitar that has been played, but never abused. The bridge is original full thickness, as is the fretboard. The saddle height is about 3/32".
The neck has been reset and the workmanship is as good as it gets. The frets may have been replaced, but the quality of work, like the neck set, is top shelf. There is a very minor length-wise hairline crack that runs though the tuner screws, from the low E to the A string tuner, but is not a structural concern (see photo). This 1945 Martin D-28 Herringbone is in Very Good condition and a non-original hard case is included. Questions? Just give us a call at 800-747-9980 or email us at . Serial #92189. - Jim B.

This vintage 1955 Martin D-28 is a really great example of a mid-50s Brazilian Rosewood with the quarter-sawn wood we all dream about. This is in Very Good condition - the guitar is crack-free, with the original finish. The Sitka Spruce top is a very dark and tight grained, with one very minor (and typical) pickguard shrinkage crack under the high E string. There are minor nicks, scratches and weather checks, to be expected with something of this age. The original bridge has been shaved slightly, and the two visible pearl dots are tiny non-original bolts (see bridge photo). The installation was very neat and clean, and did not hit the X braces.
The neck angle is very good here and the frets are freshly dressed. There is a name ink-stamped on the back of the peg head, most likely a previous owner. Most importantly, this D-28 has an exceptionally good sound and matching playability. This 1955 Martin D-28 guitar was obviously owned by someone who played it and always took care of it. Original hard case included. Serial #142189. - Jim B.

This Martin 00-DB Jeff Tweedy was worked up with the Grammy-winner himself, and is quite the player. Tweedy collaborated with Master Luthier John Woodland to design Martin's first Artist model that is FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) certified. Even the case was made using certified sustainable wood. The result is a deep-bodied (hence the 'DB'), 00-size guitar that has a warm, intimate tone. Mahogany top, back, and sides here, with European Spruce bracing and a Cherry neck block. Not only does this guitar sound great, but it looks fantastic as well with a dark sunburst finish, tortoise binding, and Foden style fingerboard inlays. Interior label signed by Tweedy, serial #266. Comes with a Martin 620 molded hardshell case.
Retail on this Martin 00-DB Jeff Tweedy is $2,999. Minimum advertised price is $2,399. For more details on this guitar, just give us a call at 1-800-747-9980 or email us at .
