My Yairi 12-fret spruce/rosewood matches the Martin 12-fret 000 specs for size in all places except lower bout width, it's 14-1/8" vs 15".

About $2400 from various sellers.

It's a slot-head, though. And alas, made in Japan.

I believe Huss & Dalton 000-SP's come standard with a short scale length. I've also seen some Collings 0002H's with a short scale floating around.

It's short an O unfortunately. Maybe they'll eventually come out with a 00012-28-MD

There are quite a few short scale Santa Cruz 000's out there with 12-fret necks. Note that the 'standard' SCGC 000 is a 12 fret neck but long scale, so you want to find one that specifics short scale length. I have one with Cocobolo b/s and Italian Spruce top that I really enjoy.

Came here to say this. My local shop has one for sale for $4100. I played it 2 weeks ago and was very impressed

Crap. I thought this one was rosewood. It’s mahogany

Keep looking! I found a Santa Cruz 12 fret 000 short scale last summer. Had been looking for one for a long time. First guitar I have acquired without playing it first. Third one I was able to locate. Missed out on the first 2. Itís been one big home run for me. Spruce and rosewood too which is nice as a contrast to a bunch of spruce and mahogany and one hogtop. Played one of the Huss and Daltons a couple of years ago and it was really nice too. Wasnít in position to buy a brand new guitar then. Dragged feet n missed that too. Best of luck in the search.

I recently sold one to Jon Garon. You might contact him and see if he's letting it go. 000-42SDLX conversion from a 000-28C.

In 2015, I ordered a 12 fret 000 through Martinís custom shop with identical specs that you listed with the following exceptions.

My guitar has a slotted headstock and three piece Mahogany back and sides.

If you gave up the slotted headstock and stuck with East Indian rosewood, youíd have yourself a nice guitar. I ordered mine from my local brick and mortar store which closed in 2018 and it was delivered 5 months and 1 day after I ordered it.

If I was in your shoes, I would call a dealer who routinely orders custom guitars like Mauryís (a forum sponsor) and ask for a quote. I have no affiliation but have heard good things about them. The Huss and Dalton SP000 listed for around $5,500 last time a checked.

My Martin 000 custom is exactly what I wanted.

Mine is a Goodall. It's a T model that is Martin like in appearance but not so much in tone.

This one is close and is a recommendation I would suggest considering. 1 13/16 nut. Its a new model that's still a bit scarce but Maury's got one in about 4 days ago.

You might look around for a Taylor 712 series in a 12-fret configuration. Not that common, but I think they (well, most of the x12 series) are often overlooked. Most will have electronics, and most are probably cutaway models with a preponderance of 14-fret models to sift through, but they're out there.

Yeah, thereís a lot of Taylors that check all the boxes listed above, some limited in recent years at the 400 series are mighty affordable, to boot.

There is also at least one SCGC short scale OM in the world (at my house . So 14 frets to the body, which isn’t exactly what you are looking for, but it is a sweet one! Cocobolo back/sides, German Spruce top.

Picked it up about a year and half ago from another AGF member.
