1963 Martin 00-21
1963 Martin 00-21 in very good condition. This a great sounding example of the longest continually made Martin model. Brazilian rosewood back and sides, Sitka spruce top, mahogany neck, Brazilian rosewood fingerboard and bridge, gloss lacquer finish, celluloid nitrate tortoise pick-guard and bindings. Has had a neck reset, bridge reglue, refret, pick-guard crack repaired and one top crack from bridge to lower bout repaired. All the work is professional and well executed. The back and sides are crack free. The finish is original with no overspray. The tuners are older and a version which Martin used although they may not be original to the guitar. The playability is excellent with plenty of saddle to lower the action if desired. The 1 7/8" nut width along with the flatter soft V profile make for an easy playing spacious neck. The tone is crisp and dry. The fullness of the 12 fret design combined with the rich overtones of Brazilian create a symphonic experience. Includes non-original hard case.
