Martin has faithfully re-created a wonderful Depression-era "00" model with this 00-17 Authentic 1931 acoustic guitar. With a sound that'll take you back to the early '30s, this 00-17 features Martin's exclusive Vintage Tone System (VTS) process, and embodies pure authentic Depression-era inspiration with unsurpassed accuracy. With nearly two centuries of Martin expertise, you can be sure that this guitar will provide you with the very best that Martin has to offer. If you're a guitarist who appreciates fine vintage instruments and wants an instrument with a warm, balanced, and well-played sound, the 00-17 Authentic 1931 from Martin is the way to go.

Exclusive Vintage Tone System (VTS)
This 00-17 Authentic 1931 is capable of producing authentic early '30s-style vintage tones delivered by the original instrument thanks to Martin's Vintage Tone System (VTS). The genuine mahogany top and the Authentic 1931 scalloped X bracing have both undergone this historic torrefaction treatment, which allows this 00-17 to reproduce those coveted warm, broken-in tones that you'd typically only achieve with an actual vintage guitar. Sonically, this 00-17 gives you plenty of warmth, balance, and midrange with a classic, vintage sound that'll convince you that you're actually playing a Depression-era Martin.

Authentic Depression-Era Inspiration
With incredibly accurate, historic appointments, this 00-17 Authentic 1931 will provide you with that unmistakable vintage Martin feel and appeal. These appointments inspired by Depression-era instruments include a classic 12-fret design, a hide glue construction, an authentically-carved 1931 neck, heel, and headstock, a Brazilian rosewood fingerboard and authentic-style Straightline bridge, Golden Age Relic nickel tuners, and so much more. A Vintage Gloss finish ties together the old-style aesthetic of this 00-17 Authentic 1931.

Nearly Two Centuries of Martin Expertise
For almost two hundred years, Martin has been creating instruments of premium quality, superior sound, and unparalleled playability, and this 00-17 Authentic 1931 is certainly no exception. Only the finest materials have been employed with this old-school-inspired 00-17, and it offers all the high-quality craftsmanship that helped make this legendary guitar maker the musical icon that it is today.
