Martin Custom Shop 000-14 Fret Cocobolo

Martin

This Martin is a creation that was built just for our shop by the master builder in Nazareth PA of the Martin Custom Shop. The wood was hand selected by Baxter and Martins team of wood specialists to create the ultimate tone machine. The cocobolo back and sides are as spectacular to look at as they are to hear. The grain is rich in layers and the visual splendor is nothing short of spectacular. Paired with the High Altitude Swiss Spruce, hide glue, a thin finish, and modified lighter bracing this guitar is an overtone rich beauty that can hang with most dreadnoughts as far as volume. 

This guitar plays like a parlor guitar but really does have the characteristic of a much larger instrument. We were all amazed at how open and quite frankly loud, this guitar can get. There is a true warmth to the chording and the soloing allows for both an aggressive and light attack due to the lively wood pairings. 

We all love the vintage open tuners, Herringbone trim, bathing cocobolo headstock and other appointments that give this tonal stunner its visual class. The neck fits like a glove to almost all of our hands and to all styles.  

We are here to help with any questions so please do not hesitate to contact us and we would love to help. We also provide almost instant video demos and picture of all of our instruments if that helps. We really just love any excuse to play some of these instruments so please...don't hesitate to reach out:)
