"A 1932 Martin 0-17 mahogany guitar that bellows like it’s 3 times its size. This particular guitar was the star of the recent acoustic tour and Vienna Opera House show and film shoot. It sounds like 10 cannons unleashed against Old Ironsides during the battle of Tripoli Harbor… Fans of 1930?s Martins always rave about the dynamic range and volume of that particular pre-war era… Not being an acoustic specialist myself, never bought into the myth until I bought into this guitar. I found “Old Ironsides” as an unclaimed repair at my friend David Neely’s Shop in Hollywood Ca. He was nice enough to facilitate the deal with the very hard to find owners.. It’s a fantastic guitar that inspired and helped me write the song “Dislocated Boy”," says Joe Bonomassa, on his [website](http://jbonamassa.com/joes-guitar-of-the-week/guitar-of-the-week-26-1932-martin/).more
