This Martin SS0041GB-17 features a Guatemalan Rosewood back and sides with lots of wide red striping across the body. Martin chose a subtle but beautiful piece of European Spruce to help accent the Abalone inlays. The "V" shape neck profile sits comfortably in the hand and offers good access while wrapping your thumb over the fingerboard. The 12 fret construction and Scalloped X bracing is a great pair allowing the guitar to truly project and resonant with little to no effort while strumming and fingerpicking.
The story behind the SS0041GB-17 is that the design was inspired by one of George Bauers instruments. George Bauer was a Luthier from Philidelphia, PA from about 1890-1910. This guitar is a NAMM show special and is #32 of 49.
This Martin SS0041GB-17 is in very good condition. The guitar has been lightly played and shows little to no wear. The original case has large amounts of tolex missing across the body.
