Martin Custom Shop "00" Grand Concert Body, 18 Style, Guitar New
The new shop favorite from Martin, and another example of how less is often more from their Custom Shop. There's nothing fancy about this mahogany 00, but the Adirondack top is a big plus, and call us old-fashioned but we still prefer the look of the long through-cut saddle on a belly bridge. So it's really a 00-18V with an adirondack top, but of course we can't use stock Martin model codes for Custom Shop guitars and this one has a contemporary neck profile anyway. Great sound, smooth and balanced but with plenty of punch when you need it. And one of the prettiest Adirondack tops we've seen.
