    Congrats Mojobangkok! I bet the anticipation you are feeling right now is off the charts. My experience is the 20s-40s Martins are the rare case of hype actually being justified. I know there are others on the board who have converted old Martins to lefties and it would be cool to see all of them. Perhaps we should start a thread archiving converted vintage Martins.

    Mine include:
    1934 000-18 Long Scale
    1929 0-17
    1918 0-21

    Do you mind telling us who is doing the repair work?
    The guitar was repaired by Ken Fallon. He re-slotted the bridge (says can't see the previous), installed a new nut, sourced a nice very close looking pick guard and took out the strap pin the right handed guy who ruined the top stuck on the neck. Ken said the neck is still strong and straight and for now no reset required. Frets are original he thinks and worn but ok for now. Ken further said the guitar plays and sounds great. It's clearly been played allot over it's 71 years, complete with mojo and is very cool. It's now with a friend who's holding it on Long Island until I can get to America to retrieve it.. Here's a picture Ken took. To say I'm lucky to have this would be an understatement.

    Wow! Excellent! I live on Long Island. Any chance I could see it before it makes it's way home to you?

    WOW! Congrats.

    I love the symmetry of a double guard.
