1929 Martin Acoustic Guitar at Goodwill in Wisconsin - Going Going...

I am far from an expert on Martin Guitars but this appears to be Either a OO-18 or a OO-21 (possibly a New Yorker) from somewhere around 1928-29 which certianly makes it "Golden Age" made during a period most players and collectors consider to be the high point of vintage Martin guitar making.

I have no connection to this guitar sale but I am highlighting it in hopes that Goodwill Industries get the maximum sale price for this highly desireable instrument - sicne theya are a non-profit that does good work and deserves as much financial support as possible.

Good luck.  It is still for sale on their website.  This is a rare opportunity for someone.

I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
