Martin Guitars

1937 Martin 00-17, Serial number 65224

Serial number 65224 was stamped on January 7, 1937 and cleared final inspection on May 10 that year.

The neck is 1-3/4" wide at the nut  with a 24.9" scale length. The straight bridge is made of Brazilian rosewood.

The tuners are Grover G-98 clipped plate machines with rounded metal buttons. This is a little surprising since this type of tuner mostly appears to have been used from 1932 to 1934.

Back and sides: Mahogany
