Martin 00-42 1926 Restored

Martin 00-42 made in 1926, and from the pictures you'd confuse it with a brand new instrument. This breathtaking beauty came in to our shop back at the time when our shop was still located in Bergentheim and that's almost 1.5 year ago. After a short revision of the cosmetic condition we deceided to restore this very rare guitar that was from a technical point of view in excellent condition except for 2 invisible crack repairs to back/sides. Cosmetically however the gutiar was quite a mess with an amateuristic refin and the abalone purfling messed up. We reset the neck, took care of the frets and replaced two braces on the back. But the most noteworthy and needed repair was the inlay on top and back, part of the purling and inlay was gone or replaced in a amateuristic way, and we had to replace it, restoring this back to original standards was quite a job. Also the neck was reset, two braces on the back were replaced, the broken bridge was replaced with a perfect replica bridge, and the whole guitar is refinished in a most professional manor, repecting the vintage value of this amazing sounding guitar. I'm quite sure It will last another 100 year without major repairs if treated with the respect it deserves. Please contact us for a price or a hands on description of this instrument. It travels in a newer Martin hardshell case.
