: Hello- I was wondering if anyone knows the value of my 1937 Martin model R-17. I don't know much about it, so any info would be greatly appreciated. It was a gift from an old friend. Supposedly, the bass player of the group Boston owned this instrument, and it has a long background that I have mostly forgotten. Thanks in advance!!

I just watched Antiques Road Show today (Sept.7,2006) Someone brought in a 1937 D-18 guitar. The appraisal they gave on it was &12,000.00 -&14,000.00. They told him it was not appraised at it's full value because it had some repairs done on it. The full value would have been $18,000.00 - $20,000.00. Needless to say the man almost choked!!!!!
