No pictures?  Shame upon you... ;-)

IMHO, if it has a crack, it isn't "mint"...or even "excellent"...

Added another 12 string into the mix....yes, my Wife was very supportive in this !!

It's the : Martin 000012-28H AG Arlo Guthrie     A smaller body that's as fun to play as it is too look at.

  sadly, the man who sold it to me called it "MINT',,,the finish crack in the center didn't happen because of shipping, also, who would ship a 12 string with only 8 on it??!! I'm bringing it to an authorized Martin Service person to have it brought to it's finest condition.

 Steer clear of a man named Dannie Powers from Virginia...deceitful description is now going to cost me time and $$

Hey Michael:


They are too cool,


I would not mind having something like those hanging in my man/ cave/ room, if I could find the room.

Very good looking for miniatures.

Ed's quite talented in many ways...have you listened to any of his music, and songs??!!  I'm actually honored to have his artwork in our Home. It's with me in the office now...eventually, it'll go in the music room.

Just tell me that they don't play EXACTLY as their full sized prototypes... or I'd regret not to be 10 inches tall, to try them! 

Ed... if you're reading... my sincere heartfelt congratulations. That's artistry.

Michael, thanks for this report.
