Martin 00-17 guitar made in Nazareth, PA in 1958. Serial number 161462.

It appears that this guitar has been in the Northwest most of its life as there are two stickers in the case indicating that the guitar came out of a shop called Broberg Music House near Cowen Park in Seattle. The case is an original soft-shell case that fits the guitar well.

These are splendid little lightweight guitars that are slightly larger than their 0-17 relative and fit comfortably on the body and exhibit a distinct brightness and a well-balanced bass response. This completely Mahogany guitar is in original condition including the bridge, pick guard end pin and tuners. The guitar may have had a professional neck set at some point in time. There is a small side-seam cleated crack repair on the bottom lower bout that appears to have been done some time ago. The guitar plays exceptionally well with the action at the 12th fret being 3mm on the bass side and 2mm on the treble side.

The guitar weighs 3.66 lbs. and has a few light scratches over most of the body. The back of the neck and the fingerboard and frets exhibit very little playwear. The tuners are in great shape and function well.

The nut width is 1 11/16"
