Hi. Is anyone here clued up on pre-war vintage acoustics? I know nothing at all about them and would really like some pointers as to info, resources,etc. The reason why I ask is that I played a 1936 martin 017 today and have fallen in love. I've never heard anything like it before. A "concert" size all mahogany guitar that projects so wonderfully and simply sings! I'm sure that I played one about 10 yrs back and felt the same then.If its true that you should buy with your ears then this is it for me but these things arent cheap and I wouldnt want to make a costly mistake.... any and all advice gratefully received.
