The Martin 000-17SM acoustic is subtle in appearance but surprisingly big and bold on tone, with a sleek Shaded Gloss body finish that gives it the true essence of a vintage acoustic guitar.
Classic tone and a distinctive feel
The classic smaller 12-fret neck makes it extremely fast and playable for both fingerpicking and strumming styles, with accessible frets and superb intonation. The 000-sized body, with Solid Sitka spruce top with solid mahogany back and sides, offer a naturally lighter, woody character that sits easily on studio recordings with minimal EQ and processing required as a result.
