Martin 1-21 Acoustic Guitar, Vintage 1892
  • Excellent Set Up for Steel Strings
  • Brazilian Rosewood
  • Pyramid Bridge
  • French Polish

Product Description

A beautiful example in excellent original condition, including the original coffin case. Back & sides are Brazilian rosewood of course, that's the only wood they used then, top is Adirondack spruce, with a lovely French polish finish.

We've done a full set-up: neck reset, new exact replacement frets, low action, plays great with extra-light gauge steel strings, tuners have been changed by the last owner to Waverlies with ebony buttons (they were originally ivory friction pegs). The tone is amazing, with a big full bass and dynamic treble. By the way, these early Martins, though originally made for gut strings, are much more successful as steel-strung guitars. Though their construction was extremely light by todays standards, they are generally super strong, due to the small size top, the fine quality spruce, despite a pile of gross misconceptions being promulgated these days.
