1939 Martin 000-21 Guitar
(Serial No. 54652) Excellent condition. These small body rosewood Martins are outstanding for fingerstyle, especially blues and ragtime. Has an Adirondack spruce top, Brazilian rosewood back and sides, ebony fretboard and bridge. Has the advaced scalloped bracing and the original 1 3/4 inch nut. V profile neck. Has the original bar frets. Luthier Harry Eibert in Syracuse recently reset the neck, dressed the frets and reglued the original Brazilian rosewood bridge. He also installed a carbon fiber truss rod on the neck so the guitar will support steel strings. Its currently set up with Santa Cruz low tension steel strings. All original hardware and finish. Has a few small back cracks that have been glued up, and a few minor nicks and dings from a lifetime of playing music. This was no case queen - this ones been out making music! Very comfortable guitar to play, nice low action and has a big sound all out of proportion to the small size. Comes in a modern soft case.
