At Telluride Music Co., we are honored to be a Marquis Dealer of C.F. Martin guitars. Re-imagined for 2017, Martin’s 17-Series offers prewar-inspired small-body guitars with vintage tone and cutting-edge pickups.
This Martin 000-17E in Black Smoke finish features a 14-fret 000 body that is comfortable on your lap, and its tone is warm and full with smooth, even projection and nice response, thanks to lightweight 1/4″ scalloped bracing. The combination of a Sitka Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides, and Rosewood fingerboard and bridge provide a familiar woody tone that is dry and crisp. Unlike the guitars of yesteryear, this 000-17E sports a Modified Low Oval neck profile and Martin’s Performing Artist neck taper. As a result, this guitar is extremely playable. With an innovative Fishman Matrix VT Enhance under the hood, this Martin 000-17E is ready for the stage and the studio, too. Overall, this is one of the more playable and versatile 000 size guitars in the shop, and we love the look of the Black Smoke finish against the natural wood grain.
Please call (970) 728-9592 or send us an e-mail, and we’ll tell you more with the guitar in hand.
