Default Martin Custom 000 Italian Alpine/EIR, Thin Nitro, Hide, Slotted Headstock $3k

SWEET Custom Shop Martin 000

Sweet and shimmery short-scale 000 constructed with Martin "Authentic Feature" Hide Glue and Thin Finish with a fine, creamy Italian Alpine Spruce top with lots of silking and a bit of bearclaw, 1/4" Sitka bracing. The back is custom 3-piece East Indian Rosewood for clean 000 bass, with contrasting center wedge. I call it an 000-35 for its 3-piece back and 1/4" bracing but with many upgrades and black walnut replacing the "35" white plastic binding, and no binding on the fretboard. No plastic or micarta or ivoroid on this all-wood Martin (except the black plastic bridge pins). Bound slotted headstock.

Great intonation, zero fret wear and medium-low action. It's loud! Low profile mahogany neck (without the Performing Artist Taper). Like-new mint condition with mint Martin molded case.

Italian Alpine Spruce top
3-piece East Indian Rosewood back and sides
1/4" Sitka non-scalloped bracing
24.9" Scale Length (000)
Nut 1-11/16"
String spacing 2-1/8"
Hide Glue Construction & Thin Gloss Nitro Finish (Authentic Feature)
Full gloss finish including neck and headstock
Low Profile neck shape
Genuine Mahogany 12/4 neck
Round-slotted Black Walnut-bound headstock
Bone nut
Compensated bone saddle
CF Martin stamp on back of headstock
Grover Nickel Stay-Tite tuning machines
Black Ebony fretboard and Belly Bridge
Custom Black Walnut binding top and back and headstock
2-way Adjustable Truss Rod
No pick guard

This Martin is amazing but I find that I can't play 1-11/16" nut as well as I used to.

$3000 Paypal F&F shipped 48 states.

John - that is one of the most beautiful, understated and classy looking custom Martins I've ever seen, good luck with the sale.

You mention 1/4 bracing, is it scalloped, GE scalloped, or unscalloped?
