2002 Martin 00CXAE Grand Concert
I was prepared to dislike this guitar from the moment it walked it, vintage snob that I am (and still am), but I don't actually hate it. It is quite good for something that isn't wood (it has a body made entirely of high pressure laminate material) with wood top and back bracing and a 'stratobond' wood laminate neck. The 00 size body (with cutaway) is shallower than a traditional 00, making it quite comfortable on your lap or hanging on a strap. The neck has a 24.9" scale, 1 11/16" nut width and large frets, all of which add up to very easy and comfortable playability. The action is set up at 6/64" at the low E. The onboard electronics sound great (and put out a strong signal). Sounds better acoustically than it has a right to (sound file posted with this listing). All of this makes this an excellent gigging guitar for the player who needs a guitar that plays and sounds good but can take the hostile environments in which most gigs occur. When it came in I did a set up and that was all that was needed to get this one ready to go...needs nothing. Overall condition is excellent. Nylon gig bag included. $475
