Default Martin Custom 000-28 12-fret *NO LONGER FOR SALE*

This is a 2018 CUSTOM SHOP, wild grain EIR/Swiss Moon. Specs are on attached sheet. I like my necks really straight and this one plays buttery with great articulation. Tone is deep and concussive like you'd get with the best vintage Martins. You can feel it in your hands, even with a light attack like mine, but if you hit it hard there's NO breakup.

Guitar is virtually unmarked. I'm the original owner.

NO LONGER FOR SALE - 9/19/20

So let me give a little more detail as I was a bit rushed when I posted this yesterday and wanted to get it up....I describe the tone as concussive - it explodes from deep within the guitar. It's rich, resonant, and on the darker side. Very nuanced - you can get a nice click under your fingernails and single notes will pop. There's a tick more than 5/32" saddle exposed. I don't think it will show in the pic but pin dots are tortoise. Headstock overlay appears to be the same wild grain but from a different board. As good a Martin as you're gonna find and totally cool!

First bump for a really nice Martin. As is usually the case, though I'm looking to sell I'd be happy to discuss a trade for something of comparable quality, If, like me, you're thinking you need something new to get through all this craziness, let me know what you've got....Robert

This Jeff thinks it’s a beauty too. Haven’t seen many 000 12 fretters that are short scale. Given the pick guard, play it with a flat pick or was the pick guard more a visual preference?

Jeff

Hey Jeff - I haven't used a flat pick in decades. They go flying across the room. Guitar came with the guard on.
