This Martin Custom Shop 000-14 Fret Premium Sitka Spruce (VTS)/Guatemalan Rosewood Acoustic Guitar is a part of our Custom Shop Martin Collection, which consists of some of the most remarkable acoustic guitars available today. To present you with an instrument that's truly unique, every aspect of each Custom Built Martin has been carefully selected by our Sam Ash Guitar Specialists—from the perfect pairing of tonewoods all the way down to the fine appointments and materials used. Combine all of that with the exceptional craftsmanship of the luthiers and builders at the Martin Custom Shop and you've got yourself a premium quality, one-of-a-kind Custom Martin.

At the 2016 Winter NAMM show, Sam Ash Music's very own Sammy Ash and John Conley (Sam Ash Music Guitar Buyer/Product Manager) went through numerous sets of exquisite tonewoods at the Martin booth in search of the perfect woods for our future custom shop creations. This selection of Guatemalan rosewood that they chose for this 000-14 fret is absolutely stunning. Visually, the symmetry of the two-piece back is incredible, boasting straighter grains closer to the sides and a beautiful, more wavy figure towards the center strip. Soundwise? This 000-14 packs plenty of sonic punch for a guitar of its size thanks in part to the temperature-aged premium Sitka spruce VTS top and "Golden-Era"-style Adirondack spruce bracing. It has tonal depth and richness for days, and sounds fantastic whether you're playing fingerstyle arrangements or strumming chords. Martin's Performing Artist neck profile lends to this 000-14 Fret's outstanding comfort and playability.

This Custom Shop 000-14 Fret also comes tastefully trimmed with an array of select abalone adornments including a stunning Style 45 rosette, Style 41 top trim, Style 45 Snowflake fretboard inlays,  and a script C.F. Martin headstock logo. It also showcases a gorgeous Guatemalan rosewood headplate to complement the back & sides, as well as grained ivoroid binding and a faux tortoise pickguard.

The Martin Custom Shop really hit the trifecta with this custom-designed 000-14 Fret, offering up superb sound, an amazing feel, and breathtaking looks. Not to mention, it's made with some of the finest materials available including gold Grover StaTite tuning machines, a bone nut & saddle, an ebony fingerboard and 1930 Style Belly bridge, and more. Comes complete with a hardshell case.
