Re-imagined for 2017, Martin’s 17-Series offers prewar-inspired small-body guitars with vintage tone and cutting-edge pickups.
The Martin 000-17E 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.
This 000-17E sports Martin's gorgeous Whiskey Sunset sunburst finish. This guitar was inspired by the dust-bowl, depression era flat-tops, so a sunset sunburst finish is fitting.
