What We Think

Golly Gee Whiz!

At SoundPure I feel spoiled with all the great acoustics I get to play on a day to day basis, so when I saw this 00 from Martin I wasn't expecting to be blown away. Then I played it. 

For a guitar that's less than a decade old, it's got a lot of movement to it. The low end resonates out and fills the room. The trebles are bright, clear, and musical. Chords are defined and crisp. I'm hooked.

Generally with Koa this new I tend to feel that they lack a certain character, but I feel none of that playing this guitar. If you're looking for a guitar that sounds as good at it looks, the search may be over!

About Manufacturer

For well over a century and a half, The Martin Guitar Company has been continuously producing acoustic instruments that are acknowledged to be the finest in the world. The Martin Guitar Company has, through the years, managed to survive with each succeeding generation from C. F. Martin, Sr.?s Stauffer influenced creations of the 1830s to recent developments introduced by C. F. Martin IV. Continuous operation under family management is a feat bordering on the remarkable, reflecting six generations of dedication to the guitarmaker?s craft. In or out of the music industry, C. F. Martin has few rivals for sheer staying power. Throughout its colorful history, the company has adapted successfully to continual changes in product design, distribution systems, and manufacturing methods. In spite of the many changes, C. F. Martin has never veered away from its initial commitment to quality. The concern for producing the finest instruments possible in 1833 is especially evident today at Martin?s expanded facility in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. The story behind one of America?s most famous guitars began on January 31, 1796, in Markneukirchen, Germany, with the birth of Christian Frederick Martin, Sr. Born into a long line of cabinet makers, Christian Frederick took up the family craft at the early age of 15, when he left his hometown and traveled to Vienna to apprentice with Johann Stauffer, a renowned guitar maker.
