1938 Martin 000-21

Photo for Ad 137988


Case: Old hardshell case

Description: This '38 000-21 is a fine-sounding guitar with rear-shifted bracing and quite a bit of character. The top has been oversprayed and the back & sides have been refinished. The bridge is a well-made replacement, but the bridge plate is original with a patch where the strings seat. There are several repaired top cracks, and one below the bridge appears to have had some wood spliced in. Both of the longer cracks below the bridge have been cleated, and there is evidence that the guitar had a tailpiece at some point. The neck was reset and refretted previously, imparting excellent playability. The pickguard is the original, and the tuners were swapped for newer Waverly open-geared tuners. 1 3/4" nut width, 2 5/16" bridge spacing. Comes in an older hardshell case.
