1955 Martin 00-17

Acquired from the son of the original owner, this 1955 Martin 00-17 was originally purchased in San Francisco and was played up to 1978. As we understand it, from that point forward it remained stowed in its case under a bed. Original tuners, original bridge, and original ebony nut are all in excellent condition; the bridge pins would appear to be quality Martin replacements, while an incomplete set of what are likely the origional bridge pins are included in the case.

Structurally the guitar is overall in excellent shape; however, as with a great many long-lived acoustic guitars lacking adjustable truss rods, this one is due for a neck reset. Cosmetic blemishes are minor considering the age. The pictures show a some play wear on the top, and there are minor dings around the body. The back has some minor buckle rash. Contrasted with other instruments of a similar vintage it’s in remarkably good condition.

Comes with pictured case which is believed to be original to the guitar. Priced is $3,200. 


Martin’s HD-28 is constructed with East Indian rosewood for back and sides, spruce for the top, and scalloped, forward-shifted bracing. An iconic guitar with an iconic sound, this one is Serial Number 2717663 and comes with a molded hardshell case. Scale length is 25.4 inches and 1 3/4 inches width at the nut.

Price: $3,399 (with hard shell case)

Martin D-15M

Martin D-15M is an all-mahogany guitar constructed of solid wood and delivers all the hallmarks of the Martin sound and build quality. Including hard shell case, this guitar sells for $1,699.

Martin OOO-12e

Martin’s 000-12E Koa is constructed with koa fine veneer, which is an environmentally conscious, alternative-wood option, made by bonding koa hardwood to an African mahogany core. The result is the show-stopping look of a koa guitar at a great price. Aside from the balance and comfort of the 000, you will get mother-of-pearl-patterned rosette and fingerboard inlay, a full-gloss body, a soft-shell gig bag, and Fishman® MX-T electronics. Priced at $1,349.

4330 McCullough
San Antonio, TX 78212

We are easy to reach from both the San Antonio International Airport and from Downtown.

From Downtown
We are at 4330 McCullough, and McCullough goes all the way downtown. In the old days, it was one of the few routes out of down town that didn’t cross railroad tracks. (A big deal when you have a wagon – I’ve heard. Never experienced it.) The maps and driving directions will help alot. Easy to know when you’re getting close because we’re just past the traffic circle/fountain.
