A gorgeous guitar that pays homage to Martin's heritage while serving up some serious eye candy.
Why We Love This
The first of our all-Koa Martin Customs to arrive is this 12-fret 000 featuring classic style-28 appointments. As with our other recent Custom Shop creations, this guitar features many dimensional similarities to a Standard Series 000-28 (short scale, Modified Low Oval neck). And while those will make it appealing to players after modern playability, the tone is anything but ordinary.
This is a big, bold, and warm sounding guitar, with that woody-yet-sparkly sound we associate with a Koa guitar. And how about that wood! This guitar's Koa has an almost three dimensional shine, which can change dramatically depending how you're looking at it. If you're in search of a special small bodied guitar that won't skimp on sound in favor of beauty, consider the dinner bell rung!
Priced with 3-ply hard case from Martin.
