What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent

This is a guitar that is ready to take you for a ride and tell a dynamic story to your audience! The 12 fret OOO has a sound that is very strong on the bottom with a nice balance to the treble frequencies and a slight scoop in the midrange that gives you an airy, complex tone that you'll be drooling over once you start playing! This specific Martin was from a small batch of custom 28 style OOOs with a cutaway as well Madagascar rosewood on the back and sides, and this really is the closest you're going to get to an old Addy/Brazilian build from the 30's without paying for Brazilian Rosewood in 2018!

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.
