Based on one of Martin's 2017 Namm Custom Shop showpieces, this exquisite model is fully adorned inside and out with custom inlays made from Mother of Pearl, Paua, and European Flamed Maple. The 00-14 Fret body is complimented with a premium blend of woods: an Italian Alpine Spruce top, Curly Makore back and sides, and a solid Flamed Spanish Cedar neck.
This guitar is a real masterpiece and the sound is rich and powerful. We found this guitar to work particularly well for sweet fingerpicking melodies, but jazz oriented pieces sound stellar on this beauty.
