MARTIN GUITAR 00-25-K

12345678910
THIS MARTIN 00-25-K IS SERIAL NR :428 746 WHICH I BELIEVE MAKES IT A 1980

I HAVE OWNED THIS GUITAR SINCE 1990 AND CARED FOR IT SO MUCH THAT I

INVESTED 1600 EUROS JUST TO HAVE THE NECK RESET AND A

B- BAND PICK UP ADDED.

THE WORK WAS DONE BY MARTIN SEELIGER, WHO CUSTOM BUILT ONE OF MY

OTHER GUITARS , A LAKEWOOD. I CONSIDER HIM ONE OF THE BEST BUILDERS

IN THE WORLD.

THE RESULT IS, THAT SHE PLAYS BEAUTIFULLY, WITH LOW ACTION AND

AN ALMOST UNBELIEVABLE SOUND COMING FROM THIS " BABY MARTIN ".


THE PERSON I GOT THE GUITAR FROM TOLD ME JERRY GOODMAN,

THE VIOLINIST OF THE BAND THE FLOCK, WHO LATER PLAYD WITH

MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA , BOUGHT THIS GUITAR FROM MANNY'S MUSIC

STORE IN NYC. I HAVE NO REASON TO DOUBT THAT STORY AND NO PROOF.


I HAVE ALWAYS CARED FOR THIS GUITAR AND LOVED HER, HOWEVER THERE

ARE A FEW SCOFFS THAT WILL NOT SHOW UP ON PHOTOS, VERY MINOR.

JUST SOUTH OF THE BRIDGE THE WOOD SEEMS TO BE SPLITTING EVER SO

MINUTELY, BUT WHEN YOU RUN YOR FINGER OVER IT YOU CAN FEEL IT.

IN ONE PHOTO YOU CAN SEE A LINE EXTENDING FROM THE BRIDGE.


THIS HAS NOT WORRIED ME IN ALL THE YEARS I HAVE HAD HER.

SHE COMES IN HER ORIGINAL MARTIN CASE , WHICH IS IN GREAT SHAPE,

OTHER THEN A LITTLE SURFACE RUST ON THE HINGES.




IF YOU ARE READING STILL, YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE LOOKING AT

A NOT SO ORDINARY MARTIN GUITAR , VALUE IS AROUND $3000

I AM LOOKING FOR MOTORCYCLE CRUISER SUCH YAMAHA FJ 1300 OR BMW

I AM NOT INTERESTED IN A HARLEY OR ANY V- ENGINE UNLESS IT IS A DUCATI OR GUZZI

IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING ELSE IN THE TRANSPORTATION DEPT LET ME KNOW.
