1957 Martin D-21 Brazilian/Sitka
SOLDAdd to Compare
Just when you think you’ve got the vintage Martin sound memorized, there comes a guitar like this 1957 D-21 to turn it on its head. Think of it this way: this D-21 has had 58 years in which to learn how to sound good–and brother, this guitar took notes. The voice that comes screaming out of this Brazilian Rosewood and Sitka Spruce box is true vintage, broken in, opened up, and raring to go. The trebles are crisp and sweet, and the bass rolls like a kettle drum. Flatpickers will have their solos explode across the airwaves with the great projection and sustain, and Traditional-style fingerpickers have a strong, articulate voice in which to express themselves and their favorite arrangements. And this isn’t just your run-of-the-mill Martin from the 50’s–this D-21 has recently had a tune up at the hands of our own Ken Jones, who has restored this guitar to the playing condition of its adolescence.
Ever wonder what gorgeous vintage woods could do with a new pair of legs? Cover many more miles of great music, that’s what. Now, you can rest assured that this D-21 is ready for another 30 years. All that warmth, that punchy growl, the big, loud bark–all of that has been preserved for the next chapter of its life–in your hands. This guitar comes with a Martin molded hardshell case.
