Subject: RE: 1933 Martin OO-42 found in a closet
Wes, on a completely honest note here........If they intend to sell it, DO NOT have it repaired. The vintage buyer is going to know what it's worth and have his own favorite luthier. Most would prefer it in the condition it's in rather than repaired badly, or even a decent job, just not perfect.

Don't get too excited on super big bucks either. Here a 1925 00-42 going for $6500.
