New old stock 2006 Martin 000-17 Black Smoke w/padded nylon gig bag
This is a super resonant spruce top guitar with solid mahogany back and sides built in Nazareth that resembles some of the iconic blues guitars of the 30s (made by other manufacturers...(Martin didn't make a black finish guitar with white appointments back then...but nevermind). It has a satin “Black Smoke” finish that is elegantly set in contrast against the ivory colored bindings and pickguard. Action set low enough for fingerstyle yet high enough for pick style, plays clean all over and rings, rings, rings. Comes with a padded nylon gig bag case. Ships to US only, no international shipping offered. Thanks for your interest and see my other listings for more new Martin and other guitars.
