Next Project - 1931 Martin tenor guitar

Martin tenor guitars were built as a transition instrument for banjo players to guitar, hence, four strings instead of six.

Since this resembles a baritone 'ukulele, I will attempt to replicate this classic guitar for a good friend who is a music aficionado.

Note the serial number of this classic Martin (46088) indicating when it was built.
