It's what they called their double aught. Long shot but you never know unless you ask. Prepared to move on it immediately if you got one for sale. Won't pester you with trade requests. Do not want to spend the premium on Brazilian, but every other wood choice is fine. Thanks.

I'm seeing some PWGC instruments come loose lately. Anyone have a double aught they would be willing to part with? Thanks.

Since the 00 is a recent addition to their lineup, I'd be curious to know how many have even been sold and delivered? Perhaps very few, which may make your search difficult.
But good luck!

Yea, I've run this want ad several times with zero responses. But, I'd be happy to settle for a '44 00-18. Any interest in selling?

Pre Wars coming loose all over this board. How about a 00? I'm ready to move when you are.

Ha, no thanks. A month back, I started a thread asking the value of the 44. I was in a funk and contemplated selling while prices are up (didn’t actually say I was selling).
I had a pile of offers way over my purchase price and I came to my senses!
But I’d love to hear a P*W 00 myself.

Pre War brand is a new one on me. Let me see if I have this right: you pay them to distress the new guitar they just made for you? Couldn't you do that yourself by just abusing it? Then at least it would be your custom abuse. What'll they think of next?

Well, there's a tad more to it than that. I was a skeptic at first, too. I had many, many pre war Martins and Gibsons come through my shop when I was a full time dealer. I didn't think what they were doing could be done to compare with the real thing. After owning six of these guitars, I'm a believer and an advocate now.

Prewars blow away anything Martin made past 44

Cancel the search! Thanks to fellow forum member, pcf, I found a build slot at Penny Lane Emporium in Ft. Lauderdale for a completion date of October, '22. So, I custom ordered an EIR 00 to my specs. This is a first. I've had countless guitars come through my hands over the past three decades, but I have never ordered a custom build. Nine months out. Like waiting for my next child to be born, but rest assured, I'm way past those days.
