I have a Mountain M-34 guitar for sale which looks like a Martin 00-28 for sale in EBay (WONDERFUL VINTAGE 1928 MARTIN 00-28 STEEL STRING BRAZILIAN PHENOMENAL TONE EX http://r.ebay.com/HTmNpV). This M34 I own, more than any other Mountain and especially the CF Mountains Guitars, fuels the rumor that Martin's parts and construction methods were used to the extent that it looks almost exactly like the 00-28. I posted a comment in the ongoing blog about vintage Mountain Guitars drawing attention to the astonishing identical details shared by the two guitars. If you look at the photos of the Martin, you'll see that the bridgework is exactly the same, the 2-piece back; even the inlays in the fret board are the same. There is a little knobby that sticks out where the neck meets the head stay, probably for support, but it is exactly the same too. The only thing that is different is the head stay!
I can send photos.
No, I have not sold mine yet. You can contact me at 972-257-1100 if you are interested.
Mr. Stringer, did you sell your Mountain W-150? My apologies, I've been out of reach for quite some time.
My Mountain guitar has the paper label inside the guitar. It is a model K190J made in Japan. The nut, bridge, strap peg, and string pegs are all solid brass. I don't know if they were all made this way???? I purchased it new in the early 1970's. This is just something you may want to look for when you purchase.
