Good news on April fools
So four years ago I took my mothers 1941 Martin 00-18 that she left me down to a highly respected luthier in Nashville. The guitar needed a lot of work to repair all poor repairs that had been done to it over the years by friends and her band mates. Well Dan texted me today and told me I can pick it up on the 10th. So I'll be fully Vaccinated and spending the weekend in Nashville. Here a picture of it before I took down. I will share more when I get in my hands again.
Wow, that is nice! How's it play after all the repairs? Bet it plays and sounds great.
We took my mother-in-law's old acoustic in to have it repaired. It had a huge split in the back a lot of other misc. problems. It was worth repairing because it is truly a vintage guitar, but because it was an inexpensive guitar to begin with it still didn't sound very good even after all the repairs.
I'm thinking yours sounds a lot better, LOL.
@Susan Wagner I Grew up listening to my mom playing it. It was just what i always thought a Martin should sound like. When my mom passed and I got the guitar it still sounded okay but it was in rough shape and the action was really high. It will be a few weeks before he is done with it so i have to let you know how she sounds. But it will be great to hold my moms guitar again. I made my mom a promise that I would get it restored it meant a lot to her. My grandfather bought her the guitar for her 16th birthday. He made a lot of sacrifices to get it for her, they didn't have a lot of money.
That’s a treasure. Can’t wait to see the end product.
Very cool guitar and story.
Nice Guitar, your a lucky man to own this baby. 😀
Wow! Such a treasure! Four years! You’re patient!!
Worth the wait! It looks good.
Thanks for the clip but I am unable to open it..shows that it is private and I'm not real techi on what to do!
