Jonathan,

If you're asking me how much I paid for the 1870 0-28 New York Martin that I got from my homeless friend.....so far it has cost me a cheap dinner at Jack In The Box, a repair to two of his other "street" guitars, and I will take him to Guitar Center and buy him a new, shiny guitar for him. I doubt that I will spend more than $300 at GC (he doesn't want something TOO nice as he spends a lot of time on the street). I'll try and post some pics if people are interested in seeing.

Greg

Hey David, could you check that URL for the great tune video, it came up as a n error when I clicked on it.  Thanks, Edward

just strummed a Stelling guitar and heard about Huss & Dalton. I will search this site for info, but in the meantime, do these names mean anything to you? I vaguely recall Stelling banjos

how much did you pay for it?

I saw an 1870's 0-28  New York from San Diego (w/ original sales receipt) on Antiques Roadshow a few weeks back. It was in "perfect" condition and they valued it at $4000 (I think). Despite what it seems, I paid attention because I recently got an 1870 C.F. Martin, New York. 0-28. Mine is not in perfect condition but reasonably restorable. I got it from a homeless guy who carried it in his shopping cart :-o (it's a long story)!! I'm taking him to Guitar Center to get him a new guitar in trade....one that's suitable for the street.

Interesting.

A Martin guitar on the Antiques Roadshow.

Cheeez . . . why would you want to put that cover over any guitar? I'd rather view the beautiful wood than engraved leather.
Comment by Ed Rhoades on March 7, 2011 at 5:32am
I played that Elvis guitar. I expected it to sound bad because of the leather, but it sounded great. Imagine what it would sound like without the leather.

Hey,I am a sucker for tooled leather though,not on a guitar.<LOL>
