Fine Martin CS 000 Sunburst build by the Martin Custom Shop luthiers. These fine craftsman cut, sand, carve and craft the finest materials into an instrument that inspire you. And this Martin 000-14 Custom will just do that. On top of that they finished the top with a beautiful and classic 1935 style Sunburst Nitro lacquer.
This beautiful Martin CS 000 combines Genuine South American Mahogany for the back, sides and the neck with a premium Adirondack Red Spruce top into a truly classic recipy for an inspiring instrument. South American Mahogany (Swietenia Macrophylla) has become my favorite tonewood. Sounds terrific, looks beautiful and smells great. Its rich honey brown finish is quite striking under the Nitro finish. She has a very nice tap tone combined with a full lush depth. Adirondack Red Spruce was once used so much on our fine guitars and is now available in limited quantities for premium soundboards. This beautiful tonewood has been the choice of bluegrass pickers for decades, and adds power to any guitar design. If it’s loud you want, Adirondack is for you. Adirondack is even more dynamic than Sitka Spruce and has a higher ceiling for volume. You can strum an Adirondack-topped guitar aggressively without distorttion or loss of clarity. For the aggressive player who wants volume and clarity without distortion; the player or collector who wants the vibe of a pre-war guitar. This top has strong fundamentals and responds well to either a light or firm touch. She has a higher resonance and exhibits a more complex overtone content.
This particular guitar is very well balanced and brings out all the nuances of you play. Strong and thight basses, warm mids en crystal clear high combined with lots of complex overtones. And in a superb 1935 Sunburst shade this is a classic beauty! Mint condition
