What a sweetheart of an Martin! Offered is this marvelous 14 fret, 000/OM-sized guitar built in the Martin Custom Shop in 2015 and in near mint condition.
This guitar has a beautiful Adirondack Spruce top. The top bracing is 1/4" scalloped Adirondack. It has a Style 28 rosette, grained ivoroid binding and herringbone purfling. The back and sides are nicely figured Madagascar Rosewood and it has been given a classic zig zag back stripe. It has a nice feeling 14-fret Mahogany neck with Martin's Modified Low Oval neck shape and Performing Artist taper. The fingerboard is Black Ebony with a 16" radius, diamond and squares Abalone inlays and a 1-3/4" nut. It has a Black Ebony belly bridge with drop in saddle. The string scale is 25.4" and the string spacing is 2-3/16". The headstock is overlaid with Madagascar Rosewood and the tuners are nickel Gotoh open gears with butterbean knobs. The body of the guitar is finished in gloss lacquer with a light aging toner added to the top and the neck is finished in satin.
This little beauty is surprisingly loud and responsive to your touch. The tone is nicely balanced with lots of note separation. It plays super-easy with a nice low setup with 12th fret string heights of 6/64" and 4/64" on the low and high sides, respectively. Listen to the provided sound sample and I think you will agree, this guitar sounds like an instrument costing far more than the price of this guitar!
Not only does this guitar play and sound great, but it is also in near mint condition. You will have to look closely and very carefully to find any play wear on this lovely guitar. The frets show no wear and even the pickguard is extremely clean.
When new this guitar had a suggested retail of $6,400 and likely sold for approximately $5,500 but you can get this lightly played near mint example for substantially less. It comes in it's similarly mint Geib-style Martin case along with the original paperwork. This beautiful Martin is sure to please. Make it yours!
