Love this guitar. If I had the money I would buy it and I’m not even a big Gibson fan. 1937 J-35 that was unable to be strung up when it came in. The top was a mess with some previous bad repair work. I did the bad repairs over, plus I gave it the attention and additional repairs that were needed for it to continue on as somebody’s guitar. This guitar is for sale and it needs a good home. Call us and we will pass along the dealer’s name to you.
Here is a video of a beautiful beat up 1947 Martin D-18. Somebody had filled all the pick wear in the top with putty. We removed it to expose it’s injuries in all their glory. Fret work, finish work and other misc. repairs. Listen to the woody dry tone. Check out the photo gallery at Blomguitars.com for more information.
Nashville flood survivor that we re-built and refinished. 1937 Martin 00-18 belonging to the Roy Acuff collection. I think it sounds better after the flood than before. Good to see it ready for a long future ahead. The work was extensive and time consuming, but the guitar plays and sounds great and is structuraly sound.
