The all-Mahogany Martin 00-DB Jeff Tweedy edition that Martin is now offering boasts some interesting specs. For starters, it’s a long-scale 00, the body depth is D-size and it’s completely FSC-certified.
Despite appearances, the guitar isn’t completely retro: it has a Richlite fingerboard and a mortise and tenon neck joint. With a list price of $ 3.249, it’s definitely not for everyone but it’s hard to deny the cool, vintage look of a sunburst on a mahogany-topped guitar. It’s also nice just to see manufacturers making more uber-versataile 00 models; they really can be special. Tweedy himself obviously took this signature model seriously, in the below video he even gives some credit to Martin guitar historian John Woodland – the genius behind the Mastery Bridge for Jazzmasters and an occasional FJ contributor – for some of the instrument’s specs. I personally can’t wait to try one out.
Designed in collaboration with Grammy Award winning Wilco front man, Jeff Tweedy. The 00-DB Jeff Tweedy is Martin’s first Custom Artist model that is FOREST STEWARDSHIP COUNCIL® (FSC®) CERTIFIED by the Rainforest Alliance, an important distinction for both Tweedy and Martin. The FSC® label coupled with the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal on this guitar means that the wood used comes from forests that have met rigorous standards for protecting forestlands, communities and wildlife. This used Martin is in MINT condition with some very minor scratching on the pickguard. This guitar plays phenomenally and sounds great!
