    Description

    Martin F-9 Archtop Acoustic Guitar (1937) Condition: Very Good-plus.
    This is an extremely rare pre-war F-9, in its original archtop mode. It features Brazilian rosewood sides and back, and produced in very limited quantities -- perhaps less than 80 were made, with a number later converted to flattops. This guitar has the same headstock and neck inlay as the prewar D-45. The fretboard appears to have had some careful restoration, a pickguard has been removed, and the entire body has been refinished with heavy lacquer, partially filling an old wear groove along the high E-string. Comes with the original case. From the Russ Cochran Guitar Archive.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
