Rare Vintage Single Owner 1961 Martin 00-21ny Acoustic Guitar Brazilian Rosewood:
**more pictures can be seen here: ocmodern.tumblr.com** Item Description: A rare vintage original 1961 Martin 00-21NY Acoustic guitar purchased directly from the original (single) owner. This seldom seen smaller body vintage Martin guitar was only produced from 1961-1965 with only 906 units made during this period. This is from the first year of production. This guitar was styled after classic Martin Acoustic guitars from the 1920's when they were still made in New York. This guitar was very nicely kept and gently used as the condition shows. It appears to be all original and unmolested showing only minor expected wear from age and light use. This guitar features a beautiful Brazilian Rosewood back and sides. The top is spruce. It was made with no pick guard and no inlays in the fretboard. It has the original tortoise shell binding which is in very good condition. There is a faint hairline crack on the top from the center area of the bridge down to the lower bout as shown in image 7 which is not very notable but should be mentioned. The top is in good shape but is not 100% flat as picture 11 shows. There is also a small crack at the very end of the lower bout as shown in picture 10. The top of the guitar has some expected scuffs and dings as shown in the images. The neck looks to be in good condition and is nice and tightly seated. The tuners are original, one of the tuners is slightly bent but works fine and could be bent back straight. The inside is marked with the model number 0021NY and the serial number 1800xx dating it to 1961. This guitar comes with a vintage hardcase but I do not think it is the original case.
