Sunburst, Serial # 66879.

The 1930’s are known in most history books as the Great Depression. It was a time of great economic hardship and poverty. This same period is also known as the “Golden Era” of Martin guitars. The innovations introduced to Martins at this time make them among the most desirable flattop guitars ever made.

 

 The two 1937 Martins share the beautiful sunburst finish seen only during Martin’s Golden Era. In 1937 the 00-18 listed for $45, while the 000-18 was $55.

 

Dave’s Comments: Both of these guitars came to my attention within 30 days of each other a few years ago. The funny thing was that they both came from different people in the same small Wisconsin town. Obviously a store in this area sold both of these Martins new back in 1937!
