Derek Trucks’ Martin 0-17H

This Martin 0-17H is among Derek’s favorite and most used guitars. Among others, he can be seen playing it on the acoustic version of “Calling Out To You” posted on Tedeschi Trucks Band’s YouTube channel (photo below).

The guitar is a vintage Hawaiian model (therefore the “H” in the name) that was converted to the Spanish-style guitar either on Derek’s behalf or by someone prior to him. This included resetting the neck, probably shaving the profile a bit, and likely installing a new bridge.
