1966 Martin 0-16NY
1966 Martin 0-16NY that sounds amazing! Lightly built guitar that has a great airy and open woody tone that only occurs in vintage acoustic guitars. Surprisingly loud and balanced instrument to have such a small body.
In excellent vintage condition, there is some nice finish checking and of course a ding here or there, but 100% crack free and in need of no repair or maintenance at all. You can vaguely see where there was once a golpe plate style pick guard in place but its only a slight color line with no finish problems. The replacement tuners are nice Waverlys with tortoise buttons.
The setup on this guitar is very comfortable and easy to play. It currently has D'Addario light gauge steel strings (.053-.012) and handles them wonderfully. The 12th fret action is 7/64" on the low E, 5/64" on high E, with .009" relief in the neck. Plenty of break angle at the saddle. The nut width is 1-7/8".
Comes with a vintage case in great shape. We are unsure if it is original to the guitar but it fits it well and is super cool!
