1929 Martin Handcraft Alto - parts?!?

I'm looking for anyone out there who has a few parts to spare for a 1929 Martin Handcraft Alto (gold-plate). I need the entire neck receiver assembly.

Send me a message if you have anything you can part with or if you have a lead to someone who does!

Thanks!

Jim

    Martin made many many many stencil horns.

    I think the neck receiver for any of these will fit your handcraft. You can find such horns on ebay for less than 150 bucks almost any day.

    I myself would get a silver horn, make sure its right, have the work done, then spot plate the gold.

     

     I do have the part in silverplate. I do not have a neck for this part horn.

    Good Luck

      Thanks for the tip! I found a 1930 Handcraft in silver recently but didn't win the auction.
