Drawing the inspiration from the amazing sound of Martin's Golden Era dreadnought guitars, Musician's Friend's Private Reserve team has collaborated with the Martin Custom Shop to create spectacular instruments which replicate some of the most sought-after instruments ever. This Custom 00-21 totally hand-built by the Martin Custom Shop team, and was conceived for players who desire the tone and character of a smaller-bodied instrument. It's inspiration comes from a prized instrument in Martin's museum collection. After close evaluation of the original, the Adirondack tops on this 00-21 were thinned carefully to achieve the maximum balance between flexibility, movement and strength. These tops were then carefully matched to premium Madagascar rosewood backs and sides to create a sound box that's sonically exquisite. To further achieve the Golden Era tone, 1/4" hand-scalloped Adirondack bracing was used, and the entire instrument was constructed with vintage hide glue. Hide glue is highly sought-after due to its hardening characteristics which cause it to act as if it's part of the instrument and not just adhesive. But this custom 00-21 doesn't just perform well - it looks stunning too with its highly flamed koa binding. The guitar feels great too: the genuine mahogany neck has been given a special 1937 shape (done by the skillful hands of Custom Shop craftspeople). The neck construction features a traditional T-bar, and the scale length is a wonderfully comfortable 24.9" scale. Waverly tuners complete the package - as well as keep you in tune.
