Martin's new 00-17 Authentic 1931 is a scarily accurate reproduction of a vintage guitar. It's made with hide glue construction, a dovetail neck joint and a genuine mahogany top, back and sides. It also has Brazillian rosewood fingerboard and bridge with an Authentic 1931 neck shape and heel. Remaining true to its origins as a Depression Era instrument, the 00-17 Authentic 1931 features authentic scalloped X-bracing, a Vintage Gloss finish, and historically accurate appointments, such as Golden Age Relic Nickel Side Mount tuners. This is one of the best sounding all-mahogany guitars we have had here at the store. It has a bright, clear tonal response across the bass, mid-range and treble registers. While it really shines when fingerpicked, it responds very well to a flatpick. Unless you have access to a time machine, the 00-17 Authentic is the closest you'll ever get to buying a brand new 1931-era guitar.
