Default **Traded** Martin 0000-41 custom Cocobolo + Italian Spruce

Hello friends,

In my recent attempts to battle a serious case of GAS, I have acquired two guitars with a bit of overlap. In an attempt to maintain goodwill in my household, and free up some cash, Iím putting my most recent acquisition up for sale.

This particular instrument came from The Music Emporium, and they hand selected the woods at 2017 NAMM. The back and sides are a figured cocobolo and the top is Alpine Spruce. I also own a mahogany 0000 with Alpine spruce, and by playing the two side by side I can describe the difference the cocobolo makes. Itís certainly more resonant, with a darker and bass heavy response. The cocobolo is much more dense, and provides a richer sounding tone than the mahogany. The bling is cool too, and the Koa binding is certainly gorgeous.

I recently installed a K&K ultra pure mini pickup, which includes a pre amp and sound hole controls. This is about a $250 value installed.

Iíve traded this amazing guitar!!!

I donít have any new pictures of the guitar, but can provide those on request. It also comes with a Geib 545E case with burgundy interior. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.

Great guitar. If I hadn't just sold one to free up space I would ease your wait. Good luck with sale.

Here are some updated pics of the guitar. It is practically brand new, except for the pickup upgrade and a set of Santa Cruz low tension strings.

Wow, just wow, what a beauty. Sorry but I have an M-36 so my 0000 GAS is already covered.

What a stunner! I can vouch for the size from my Martin M-30 Jorma Kaukonen model. These are Martin's best kept secret IMHO. Probably too much overlap for me to justify but this is one of the most beautiful guitars I've ever seen. Too bad my wife and I were just discussing the number of guitars I have at dinner this evening. I saw a yellow light and went for the brakes. Perhaps I'll sell a couple and circle back.

Thanks for the interest so far. I am open to trades for a similar level Goodall, Froggy Bottom, or Santa Cruz.

Thanks for the kind words! If it didnít overlap with my mahogany 0000 I wouldnít be considering letting it go.
