A nearly 100 year old acoustic guitar with an interesting origin story, this Wurlitzer Model 2088 is one of 13 built by Martin for the Rudolph Wurlitzer Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. It’s similar to a Martin 0-21 of the same time period with some minor aesthetic differences. It needs some work, so we've listed it AS-IS (see More Details below). Period hardshell case included. This instrument is in very good condition.
