Details

Martin's 0000s, "wide like a jumbo and thin like a 000", were inspired by conversions done in the 70s and 80s of their pre-war hybrid archtop F-9s. With their 16" lower bouts and slender bodies, the model gives players who prefer the curvier, smaller shape of an OM much more tonal volume and presence. This Custom Shop 0000 features an Adirondack spruce top paired with Madagascar rosewood back and sides. Madagascar Rosewood offers an exceptional and overall complex tone, and it's well-suited to this guitar, giving flatpickers and strummers plenty of bite and projection, while keeping the sensitive responsiveness fingerpickers tend to prefer. Bound by flamed koa and with a flourish of herringbone on the rosette, this beautiful Custom Shop model is in great overall condition, save for some hazing in the finish where the guitar makes a lot of contact with the body on the back, and a notable ding/scratch in the top on the lower bout treble side.
