1963 Martin 00-21NY
1963 Martin 00-21NY in very good condition. The 00-21NY is a wonderful relic from the folk boom of the 1960s. They differ from the standard 00-21 with the omission of a pickguard and fingerboard inlays, some have satin finish as well. This is a fine example in condition and sound. The neck rest, refret, and replacement bridge were done by Tom several years back. A keen eye will notice the saddle is a drop in style. This was done at the request of the owner to allow seasonal action changes for very easy fingerstyle playing. Should the new owner want it vintage correct it can easily be made into a glued in through saddle. There was once a clear flamenco style pickguard that left its shadow but did not affect the finish otherwise. There are two small back cracks both repaired. The sound of this guitar is where it shines. Bell like and warm the fundamental is a thing of beauty. The trebles ring clear and excel when finger picked. Includes hard shell case.
