Oldest Acoustic Guitar Alive?

Watch John Bohlinger delicately play this 1834 "Stauffer-style" Martin that is thought to be the legendary brand's oldest instrument in existence.


The oldest instrument made by C.F. Martin Sr. This stauffer style guitar is constructed with flamed maple back and sides and an elaborate clock key adjustable neck fashioned from inlaid strips of ebony and ivory. To see all the historic Martin Guitars visit the museum located in Nazareth, PA. (Courtesy of Martin Guitar's Facebook page.)
