Elvis Presley Owned and Used Guitar

This 1961 Martin 0-16NY was well used by Elvis as is evident by the play wear. There is scarring and a bit of belly at the bridge. Several nicks and dings are present in the finish. There is also heavy wear on the top with some finish cracks and checking. There are three tight top cracks with no movement. The action is high but there appears to be room for adjustment at the saddle. The frets are original with moderate wear and the neck angle is playable. The tuners are original and the strings have not been changed since his last use. Original soft case in included. LOA from Elvis’ Cousin Patsy Presley Geranen. Estimate: $30,000 – up.
