Up for sale, a 2013 Hamilton acoustic parlor guitar in excellent condition and in perfect working order. Luthier-built in the USA, this Hamilton is a modern take on the 1920s second rendition of Martin's 2-17 model, with an X-braced cedar top, mahogany back and sides, and a 3 1/4 deep lower body bout.
A great fingerpicker with a deeper sound than the body depth would imply, plucked notes or strummed chords ring out with a rich and balanced response. The glassy snap of the ebony fretboard and bridge combine with the lavish growl of mahogany to project a smooth rumble and defined clarity. This Hamilton 2-17 is featherweight at 3lbs 3oz and is professionally setup here at Mike and Mikes Guitar Bar for optimal intonation and playability. The mahogany neck has a prominent V profile, rounded just enough to still feel comfortable in the palm and measuring.
908 deep at the 1st fret and 1.045 at the 9th, where the profile depth begins to increase exponentially at the heel. The 1 3/4 bone nut accompanies a 24.6 scale ebony fretboard with 19 vintage-style 6230 frets, 12 of which clear the body. The frets are remarkably clean, with just a touch of wear beneath the B string on frets 1-3, and virtually no wear further up the board.The headstock sports open-gear tuners with butterbean buttons, which turn smoothly and hold their pitch well. An ebony overlay, and an abalone Hamilton H inlay top off the simple but elegant headstock face. Cosmetically, this small mahogany bodied acoustic is in superb condition, with the rich cedar top highlighted by an abalone rosette and ebony pyramid bridge. There is some scuffing on the treble-side of the pick path, both beyond the fretboard extension on the upper bout and between the soundhole and bridge, and a few small dings on the body binding, but otherwise this is a remarkably clean guitar. A hardshell case is included.
