Martin 000-17 Acoustic Guitar – Black Smoke

6-string Acoustic Guitar with Sitka Spruce Top, Mahogany Back and Sides, Hardwood Neck, and Rosewood Fingerboard – Black Smoke

Vintage-style Martin 000

The Martin 000-17 Auditorium 6-string acoustic guitar is for players looking for a vintage-style guitar with a unique look. The 000 body style offers a sound that is balanced and detailed. It’s a favorite among fingerstylists. The combination of spruce, mahogany, and rosewood are used for their rich harmonics. And the 000-17 boasts a no-nonsense look that works onstage or in your living room. The Martin 000-17 Auditorium combines some of the most popular elements in vintage acoustic guitar construction with modern updates to the guitar’s playability.

Vintage construction, modern playability

The Martin 000-17 acoustic guitar has the popular Auditorium body that has been a favorite among performing guitarists for many decades. Its body delivers rich low end, while giving each note a balance and clarity that works as a solo instrument or for accompanying your voice. The neck joins the body at the 14th fret for a total scale length just over 24.5″. And the neck is built with Martin’s Modified Low Oval profile with High Performance Taper to appeal to modern player’s demands.

Sonically rich wood combination

The mahogany, spruce, and rosewood wood combination used on the 000-17 is exceptionally popular for the way it balances warmth, detail, and a wide frequency response. The solid Sitka spruce top offers great stiffness-to-weight ratio to get maximum volume and power from your strings. The solid mahogany back and sides ensure your tone stays even across the frequency range, while delivering plenty of warmth. And the rosewood fretboard also contributes to the rich harmonic warmth of the guitar.

Streamlined appearance

Both modern players who want a striking-looking instrument and lovers of vintage Martins will love the straight-forward appearance of the 000-17. The guitar’s minimal fretboard inlays and simple ivoroid binding and pickguard give it the look of a well-loved prize from the pre-war era. And Martin’s Black Smoke satin finish helps enhance the tone of the guitar by letting the woods move and breath naturally.
