Vintage 1955 Martin OOO 21 Spruce and Brazilian Rosewood

This auditorium size Martin is the largest of all the "0" designated Martin acoustics. This wonderful Brazilian Rosewood Martin OOO-21 guitar from 1955 is a vintage classic. These 1950s Martins are still a good value. They will likely be the next frontier for guitar collectors.

This instrument features a Spruce Top and gorgeous Brazilian Rosewood back and sides. Additionally, it is appointed with closed-back Kluson tuners, tortoise body bindings, and rosewood fretboard, bridge and headstock overlay.

Brazilian Rosewood is an extremely rare tonewood. It has deep bass and brilliant trebles that was used on the famous vintage guitars that we have all grown to love. An international trade embargo on Brazilian rosewood products guarantees that the relatively few sets remaining in this country will continue to spiral in price as the supply dwindles. Brazilian brings remarkable darkness, depth, and warmth; while exhibiting glorious overtones across the entire tonal spectrum.

The sound and setup of this 1955 Martin 000-21 are perfect. It has very smooth action and a warm, clear tone, it is super light and incredibly well-balanced, the highs shimmer in a way that beautifully compliments the rich mids. Not really boomy, this 000 would be ideal for recording.

This instrument is in perfect working and sounding condition. However, like most guitars of this age, it has some substantial wear to the top, back and sides. This has been represented in the detailed photos below. It has slightly bent tuner post on the D and G pegs, very minor fretwear and includes a Collings Hardshell Case. Additionally, we have included the Gruhn's inspection report for viewing. Go ahead and check the specs out on this pre owned Martin. It could be just what you've been looking for.
