1951 Martin 00-21
Case: Period-correct hardshell case

This stunning 00-21 found it's way to us from the family of the original owner, and has weathered the last 70 years in fantastic condition! The 00-21 features a spruce top (this one certainly looks like Adirondack to us), Brazilian rosewood back & sides, beautifully figured dark rosewood fingerboard & bridge, and a 12-fret mahogany neck with 1 26/32" nut with. The finish on the back and sides appear to be a factory Martin refinish; the rest of the finish appears original. The dramatic grain pattern on the bridge is more consistent what you would see on  -21 guitars in the later 60's, so we could speculate the guitar possibly went back for a new bridge during that time and the back & sides were refinished. Upon arrival at our shop the tuner buttons disintegrated and were replaced, the neck was reset, a new bone saddle was installed, the frets were dressed, and a small B string crack was repaired. The resulting guitar is a fantastic playing instrument! It comes in a period-correct Martin 440 style case, produced by Harptone and collectable in it's own right.  It doesn't fit all that well without some additional padding as it wasn't made specially for a 00, but this guitar didn't see much traveling.
