Description:
Elvis Presley's Stage-Used 1953 Martin 00-21 Acoustic Guitar. This stunning Martin 00-21 acoustic with natural finish was played by Presley during the early years of his career. Elvis preferred Martins due to their unique sound, and his first stage guitar was a Martin 000-18. (He later upgraded to a Martin D-18.)
This particular guitar was later given as a gift by Presley to actor and Hawaii Five-O star Jack Lord. Presley befriended Lord and his wife Marie while working on his Aloha from Hawaii TV special. Elvis gave Jack a gold Walther PPK, and Jack reciprocated with a banjo from his collection of vintage musical instruments. Months later, when the Lords visited Elvis in Las Vegas, Presley gave Marie a custom-made belt, and Jack received this remarkable guitar.
The instrument is in Excellent condition, with the original hardshell case included. LOAs from Elvis associate Joe Esposito and the Jack Lord Estate.
