About This Listing

This is an unknown brand guitar.  It has a Marlin sticker on the back of the headstock, but a search for that brand does not turn up much.  It could be a harmony or kay, but it is hard to say.  It appears to be from the 60's, and it is in need of repair. It has a made in the USA stamp and appears to be similar in quality level to Harmony's.  Nitro finish, etc.

I have been working on my guitar repair skills and tooling up to repair acoustics.  Unfortunately, I haven't really done much other than buying some tools (but not enough!) and way too many project guitars!

This guitar needs:
Neck set
Frets
Potential for x bracing (and new bridge)

This guitar is similar to an L-00 in size, and could make a great x brace conversion.  It has quite a flat fretboard radius, so I would recommend radiusing the fingerboard, refretting and potentially x bracing.  The pick guard is celluloid and looks cool, and the neck has a nice fat C shape to it.  Not too big!

No case, and guitar is sold as-is.  This is a great project, but will require significant work to be a professional instrument.
