I'm looking to sell a baby Martin guitar. The numbers inside are "5-18", and "63477". Anyone know what this guitar is worth?

Re: Baby Martin guitar

Worth quite a bit if you still have it, it is pre-war, with a 1 3/4 nut, and a slot head, at least it should be if the serial number you gave is correct.Depending on condition there are two for sale at dealers right now for over $76K each. I am sure you do not have this anymore, hope you did well on it, looks like someone may have been looking to make some money on your lack of knowledge.

I'm not sure I agree with the prior advice you received. I think the person may have confused your guitar with a Martin backpacker. The 63477 number is a serial number. Your guitar, if it is a Martin parlor guitar is very old and probably very valuable. Perhapvalued at several thousand dollars. If it's one of the newer backpacker guitars with a very narrow triangular shape, it's worth less than $200. Take it to a reputable appraiser for sound advice. If you email me a picture, I can get you an approximate value.

I saw a Baby Martin Guitar at the Kerrville Music Festival. They just don't have the same tonal quality of the bigger ones, but still sound pretty good. Martin is usually a higher priced guitar, but they discontinued the Baby due to tonal quality not being able to keep up to their reputation of sound quality. The one I saw was worth between #200 and $400 depending on condition. I do travel alot and have a baby Taylor (same problem with sound quliaty). I have someone who is looking to purchase a Baby Martin. Please let me know what you want for it and perhaps I can move it for you. Thanks: Lynn Fife info@evergreentech.net
