Martin Custom Shop 000-12 Fret 45-style Cocobolo



We recently had the good fortune to locate some truly exceptional Cocobolo sets at Martin Guitars.  The set used for this instrument is one of the most special of them - which is really saying something - and boasts incredible figure and coloration that's reminiscent of Brazilian Rosewood.  Take the time to click through the pictures above and you'll see what we're talking about.  In addition to the spectacular wood on display this guitar has a warm, earthy, powerful sound that makes it incredibly rewarding and fun to play.  There's always something special about a great 12-fret guitar - perhaps more bass response - and this guitar delivers on all fronts.  Every detail, from the binding to the abalone purfling, is stunning and makes for a show stopping instrument.  Looking for the perfect 45-Style guitar?  Look no further!
