DescriptionJohnny Cash's 1934 Martin 0-17 Mahogany Acoustic Guitar, Serial # 56236, Owned and Played by Graham Nash.
A Martin acoustic guitar owned by Graham Nash, etched on the back side by Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash with a penny nail. Johnny's autograph is noticeable on the back in the center, while "Love You" etched by June is on the back, bass-side upper bout. In Good condition with considerable wear from play and some repaired cracks on the top and back. This guitar appears to have had a neck reset and possible heel repair. There is evidence of cracks to each side of the heel but they appear to have been repaired. The tuners are older Grovers but are later than the guitar (circa 1960's). The bridge and saddle have been shaved down. The nut is replaced and the frets will likely need to be dressed. A neck reset would make for optimal playing on this guitar.
