Introducing our latest vintage Martin. Dubbed the first "authentic" Martin - a recreation of the Golden Era, these are some of the lightest built Martins ever. Built in the original factory, hide-glue, Brazilian rosewood, and light construction makes this a must have 00 size Martin.

The NY designation stood for “New York,” but by today’s standards the NY models weren’t much like the old Martins with the New York stamp. With satin lacquer (low-gloss) finishes, slotted headstocks, no fretboard dots, and no pickguard many potential customers assumed they were nylon-string guitars. Martin ads suggested they were for steel or nylon strings, and often shipped them with silk and steel strings. …Until this time, the standard 00-21 (with fretboard dots and a pickguard) had been the only 12-fret, slotted headstock model to bridge the gap between the original Martin guitar and its highly evolved namesake. Made for only 5 years, between 1961 and 1965, C F Martin Company built a total of 906 of these 00-21NY models.

The maple bridge plate has been replaced or capped (we cannot tell) with a new slightly larger maple bridge plate.
