Martin 000-21 (1953)
A fine player's instrument from the early 50s, this Martin 000-21 has a spruce top and nice, straight grained Brazilian rosewood back and sides. It has a 14-fret mahogany neck and 20-fret Brazilian rosewood fretboard. A new saddle has been made by our shop, the neck has been reset, it’s been refretted, and a newer nut has been installed. The top, back and sides have several repaired cracks (see details for more information), and the neck has had finish removed from the back with some reshaping from original V to round. A rough period Lifton hardshell case is included. This instrument is in very good condition. More Details...
