1968 Martin 00-21L Vintage Acoustic Guitar Left Handed Collector Grade 00-21

Up for sale, a 1968 Martin 00-21L vintage left handed acoustic guitar in exceptional condition. Very well maintained and exceedingly rarer than its right handed counterpart, this Martin came from the factory in its current left handed configuration, as noted by the "L" suffix on the model name stamped into the heel block. With its Grand Concert body size of 14 1/8" across the lower bout, the 00-21 has a focused and powerful sound that never gets too boomy, but has a sweetness, clarity, and power that belies its size. With a solid Sitka spruce top, solid Brazilian rosewood back and sides, original rosewood bridge plate, and unscalloped braces, the sound has a piano-like clarity and incredible depth. There's truly no other tone wood that can match Brazilian Rosewood for both its warmth and detail, and this instrument maximizes the potential of this hallowed tone wood. Professionally setup for ideal action and strung with phosphor bronze 12-53 strings, this 00-21L is ready to be passed along to a new home.
The one-piece mahogany neck has a quintessential medium C profile, with gently sloping shoulders and just enough depth to feel substantial. The Brazilian rosewood fretboard is a particularly nice cut of wood, with darker, tighter grain near the nut, and wide chocolate stripes in the higher registers of the fretboard. The original fretwire is intact, and these frets have been recently reseated, crowned and polished, so that they currently show virtually no wear. The neck has never needed to be reset, and the action sits at 1/8" on the bass side at the 12th fret and 3/32" on the treble side at the same fret, with plenty of saddle height left for future adjustment. The nut width is a full 1 7/8", providing plenty of space for comfortable chording and accurate fingerstyle guitar work. On the slotted headstock, the rosewood veneer with original "Martin" logo is particularly clean and vibrant, and the original Kluson tuners still hold pitch as they should with stock white buttons.
The Sitka spruce top shows the light ghosting of two pickguards which have long since been removed, leaving the spruce slightly lighter where it was exposed to less UV light over the decades. All braces are structurally sound and in fantastic shape, with the C.F. Martin & Co logo stamped along the inside center seam of the back. The serial number and model info is cleanly stamped into the heel block as well. Of course the most stunning feature of this guitar is the solid Brazilian rosewood back and sides, which have incredibly rich color and grain to match their exquisite tone. This guitar is 100% crack-free, and the finish is completely original with no touchup or overspray. There is some moderate checking in the lacquer behind the bridge, and there are a few tiny nicks and scuffs on the sides and back of the instrument, but no serious wear of any kind. There is a tiny bit of wear on the treble side of the soundhole in the pick path as well, but as the photos show, this guitar has been extremely well cared for and is visually stunning. Collectors and players alike will be extremely pleased with this rare left handed 00-21L!
The original hardshell case is included.
