1962 Martin 00-21NY New Yorker Acoustic Guitar in Natural!
This is a great model that is basically Martin's first "reissue" model of a 1920's 00-21. This particular guitar has to be one of the best of it's kind. This guitar was made in 1962. The guitar is all-original and pretty clean overall. There are a couple of scrapes on the top that do not go through the top.The guitar plays perfectly thanks to a recent neck reset. The guitar sounds incredible, truly a wonderful guitar in every way! The guitar comes with the clean original case.
These were the first reissues of earlier style guitars to appear in Martin’s catalog. The NY designation stood for “New York,” [but] by today’s standards the NY models weren’t much like the old Martins with the New York stamp. With satin lacquer (low-gloss) finishes, slotted headstocks, no fretboard dots, and no pickguard many potential customers assumed they were nylon-string guitars. Martin ads suggested they were for steel or nylon strings, and often shipped them with silk and steel strings. …Until this time, the standard 00-21 (with fretboard dots and a pickguard) had been the only 12-fret, slotted headstock model to bridge the gap between the original Martin guitar and its highly evolved namesake." Made for only 5 years, between 1961 and 1965, C F Martin Company built a total of 906 of these 00-21NY models, with only 126 made in 1964.
