Smile ** S O L D ! ** Martin Custom Shop 00-21 Short Scale 2013 MINT

I purchased this Martin 00-21 brand new in May 2014 from Ted at LA Guitar Sales. Iíve listed it as 2013 because thatís when it was born, per the Serial Number, which is 1747331.

As many of you know, Martinís Custom Shop guitars get more personal attention than their standard factory guitars. Thatís evident in this instrument, with its solid Indian rosewood back and sides (a really beautiful set) and solid Sitka spruce top. The neck is a modified low oval shape in solid mahogany; the fingerboard and bridge are jet black ebony. The bridge pins are ebony with abalone dots. The neck meets the body at the 14th fret. The tortoise binding offsets the Sitka and rosewood very nicely. Tuning machines are Gotoh with traditional butterbean knobs. This is a short scale instrument (24.9) with low action; the nut width is 1-3/4Ē. It is incredibly easy to play. Includes the original Geib hard-shell case, which I think is the coolest guitar case in the world.

This guitar is in mint condition. No cracks, scratches or dings. Itís been stored in its case with Humidipaks. As you can see in the photos, Iíve installed a digital hygrometer inside the case to monitor humidity and temperature. Guitar will ship to you with a new set of Humidipaks in the sound hole and under the headstock.

The tone is balanced and warm, with surprisingly rich bass and room-filling volume. Articulation is outstanding with clear note separation. Over the years, I've been fortunate enough to own a number of handmade guitars from Santa Cruz, Lowden and Goodall. This guitar holds its own with any of them at a fraction of the cost.

Iím selling this because I recently purchased (also from Ted) a custom Santa Cruz 000 with 12 frets to the body and a cutaway. The 12-fret configuration fits me better, so my 14-fret Martin hasn't been played much lately. Itís much too fine an instrument to sit in its case.

Iíve bought and sold many times on this forum; all my previous purchasers can attest to my integrity Ė the guitar is exactly as Iíve described it.

$1750 plus shipping. Available for pickup (or trial) in Southern California. No trades.

Too bad you're so far from me, I'm in Ct.. Shipping this time of year make me really nervous because of the very cold temperatures. Oh well, I guess I'll have to keep waiting.

Just curious, why do the CS versions of the 00 sell for much less than the stock model? LA Guitar Sales has a new one due soon, and it's listed for $2399 .

Cool 00-21

I picked one of these up in September 2015
after missing out on Kori's in July. (It was her guitar
originally) very, very nice guitar.

Thanks for bringing this up. I neglected to mention it will ship with a set of new Humidipaks in the sound hole and under the headstock, so if dryness is your concern, don't worry. (I've now added this info to my listing.)
