1957 CF Martin D 21

1957 C.F. Martin D-21 (sold)

  CITES Article 10 Certificate #551478/01

An exceptional example of this rare model that is one of my favorite series of Martin guitars ever produced.  This example is from the second full year of production and is in exemplary condition.  Solid Brazilian rosewood rims and back with a Sitka spruce top, mahogany neck. rosewood board and bridge and all original bits.  More importantly it sound amazing.  The magical combination of rosewood board and bridge and rosewood rims and back creates a magical impression with the power of the rosewood body and the softening effect that the rosewood board and bridge have.  A bit like an early D-18 on steroids.
