If you are referring to the B&W photo in the Guernsey's banner, no, that is some random photo of Garcia, with some "random" guitar - it is a full-bodied guitar (no cutaway) and the larger dot markers on the neck do not look like either Martin or Yairi - not sure what it is.
The guitar up for auction was certainly his, and is well documented per Grisman-Garcia performances and recording sessions - and the photo above - and was gifted to Grisman's recording engineer Dave "DB" Dennison. The grain pattern of the cedar top is quite distinctive, as is the headstock.
