This Martin Custom Shop piece is a delightful dreadnought with a bold finish and sweet Martin tone. You'll first notice this guitar's Antique White Gloss finish, a far cry from the typical natural-finished Martin that makes it truly stand out, along with Grained Ivoroid binding, Reduced Hexagon Mother of Pearl inlays, and a Faux Tortoise 3071 pickguard. The comfortable 14-Fret Slope Shoulder Dreadnought body has an Adirondack Spruce top and Solid Genuine Mahogany back/sides, a time-tested tonal combination that yields crisp, clear highs and powerful, full low-end. Its Modified Low Oval neck shape and 1 11/16" nut width will put you right at home as well, making playability an absolute breeze across all 14 clear frets of the East Indian Rosewood fingerboard. Exquisite in aesthetics, in-hand feel, and tone, this Custom Shop Martin is one of the finest Slope Shoulder Dreadnoughts to come through Cream City Music.
