Martin Custom Shop 00-12 Deep Body European Spruce / Cocobolo Acoustic Guitar

Martin Custom Shop guitars are always heirloom-quality, one-of-a-kind instruments with exceptional attention to detail and stunning timbers, and this 00-12 is no exception. Combining a Swiss High Altitude European Spruce soundboard with  beautifully figured Cocobolo for the back-and-sides, this deep body 00 is a playable work of art.

Premium features include scalloped Adirondack X-bracing, European flamed maple binding, a matching Cocobolo headplate, ebony fretboard and bridge, and Paua-inlaid bridge pins. The neck profile is Martin's much loved Modified Low Oval with High Performance Taper, allowing easy access to the higher frets and a 1-3/4" nut width for comfortable chording in the lower frets.

The sound is all-enveloping, with a massive bass presence, and a thick, warm and loud tone. Cocobolo is known for it's clarity and rich overtones, and there's plenty of that here - chords are fat yet clear, and single notes spring from the fretboard with shimmering overtones and a natural reverb. It's a superb all-rounder, but really shines with fingerpicking and gentler strumming.

This one-of-a-kind guitar includes a Martin hardshell case and all Custom Shop paperwork. A true heirloom instrument.
