MARTIN 00-21

MARTIN manufactured the 00-21 between 1898 and 1995. It is a spruce topped rosewood bodied grand concert style acoustic. Over almost 100 years of production the 00-21 model has naturally seen some changes. Some of the ones made in the 1930s have a belly bridge with a larger areas designed to help withstand the tension of steel strings. The post 1947 00-12s had a rosewood fingerboard - instead of the earlier ebony. In 1990 the open headstock was changed to a solid headstock.

The 00-12 is still available from Martin as a custom shop model.

MARTIN 00-45

MARTIN manufactured the 00-45 between 1904 and 1938. Up until around 1920 production numbers were very low with less than ten 00-45s made per year. The style 45 guitars were the pinnacle of the Martin range with pearl inlays on all top edges and rosette as well as ivory binding and bridge. The specifications changed over the following years: for example in 1918 ivory binding was replaced by celluloid and the bridge was made from ebony. The great sound and intricate inlay workmanship make these style 45 guitars very collectible.

Martin 00-1R

I believe the 00-1R series was simply a 00-1 with Rosewood back and sides instead of the 00-1's mahogany back and sides.
