1492012...One of the lightest and most resonant newer Martin guitars I've played, this Custom Shop CS 21-11 features solid Madagascar rosewood back and sides, solid Adirondack spruce top, solid Spanish Cedar neck, Madagascar rosewood fret board and bridge, vintage 'T' bar neck reinforcement, and the top is braced with 40s style rear-shifted scalloped traditional X bracing as is found on the D-28 Authentic 1941 and D-18 Authentic 1939. The body is bound in figured Koa, a very elegant touch that is mirrored in the end graft and heel cap. Hide glue construction. This guitar is near mint, the only thing that keeps it from being rated dead mint is one minor finish check of about 1 1/2" that radiates outward from the fretboard on the top, otherwise this guitar is like new. The top is flat under tension, the neck straight, frets in excellent shape. The neck has a comfortable "c" profile with a nut width of 1 3/4 and the pin spacing at the bridge is 2 1/4". The tuners are Waverlys with Snakewood buttons. But the best part of this beauty is its voice, which is big, loud and clear. Excellent for finger picking or flat picking, the guitar's balance and projection are maintained under both a light touch or more robust attack. The action is set at 6/64" and 5/64" with plenty of saddle showing, a set up that works great for finger style or light flat picking. An aggressive flat picker might want to raise the action a bit. Comes with the original Custom Shop hardshell case. $3999
