      1953 Martin A Style Mandolin with Geib Case

      Martin introduced their mandolins in 1895 because they noticed the popularity of the instruments throughout America & they were doing a ton of repairs on mandolins made by other companies. At a time in the late 1890’s Martin mandolin production was actually out-numbering the guitar production! This little dreamy Martin is from 1953 and it features a solid spruce top with mahogany back & sides

      1959 Martin O-15

      The Martin 0-15 was an all-mahogany instrument with modest styling. It was made mainly between 1940 and 1961, although a few may have been made in the 1930s. Its humble appearance means it has been largely overlooked by collectors. The Martin 0-15 has Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, bridge and headstock veneer. The all mahogany body means that the tone is also restrained not too much bass or treble. This particular Martin dates to 1959 and it sounds and plays great.
