Martin (used, 2005) OM21 Acoustic Guitar LEFTY

Tag No 32-4327 Used

#1078016, in "excellent" condition, with the original hard shell case.


The Martin OM-21 is an Orchestra Model guitar (15” in body width) with some visual appointments of the prewar and some modern appointments.  For example the headstock logo is bright gold and raised in a contemporary manner, the tuners are large nickel-plated metal button and with sealed backs; the fingerboard is East Indian rosewood inlaid with 8 small mother of pearl dotmarkers; back, sides and headplate are likewise East Indian rosewood and the top is close-grained Sitka spruce.   The bridge is East Indian with a drop in saddle and six black plastic bridge pins with crème dot and the end pin matches.   This guitar is in excellent shape with only the smallest signs of use.  

This model is one of the neatest fourteen fret, 1 ¾” nut, 2 1/4” bridge string spacing, comfortably low-action fingerstyle guitars in Martin’s roster.  This is a company that makes very few high-end (Standard Series and up) OMs.  Let us count the ways:  they make the OM-21, OM-42, OM-28V, OM-28 Marquis and OM-28E Retro.   Behold, if you will, the understated appointments of the Martin OM-21 – the tortoise shell celluloid body bindings contrasted with the mellow yellow top.  You get solid East Indian rosewood sides and back, rosewood fingerboard and bridge. This superb sounding source of sensual satisfaction is constructed with the devoutly desired dove-tail joint and all solid woods and made at a level of attention to detail and consummate workmanship as to generate actual awe and reverence.  Great beauty combines with simple design and fine woods to result in a guitar that’ll make you sing its praises to anybody who will listen. It is, by anybody’s measure, one of Martin’s most favorable designs.
