What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good

Super, super cool!  While it's no longer standard spec, this 000 was hot-rodded at some point at the behest of the previous owner to bend this guitar's attitude more toward flatpicking.  With a removed tongue brace, bigger frets, and upgraded Walrus Ivory nut/saddle, this little beast defies expectations of what a 000 can do--stunning!

Luthier Notes:

Tongue brace was removed, the truss rod access hole has been plugged but a ball end allen key will make truss rod adjustments possible, ebony side reinforcement strips have been installed, and this guitar has been refretted with Medium Jumbo Frets.

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.
