Borrowing an old Martin guitar for a week.


Recommended Posts

I am borrowing a 1953 C.F, Martin OO-17 for a week. My band's lead singer owns it and wants to sell it. I explained I have no intention/resources to  buy it. He is allowing me to use it at my home until next week. I am blessed with a 2010 Gibson ES-335 Satin Black & a 2007 Gibson L-4A EC Sunburst, so my money is tied up there.

This old instrument is easy to play, and sounds really nice. It has a booming low end and crisp highs.No electronics. Seems to have been refretted recently. The tuners are not original. The nut seems the same age as the frets.  If I had $3500 to spare, I would buy it.

This is a treat!
