Custom Deep Body 00 Martin-Style Guitar / Full Scale / Adi Top

14 fret 00 guitar built in my shop in York Maine. Vintage bracing and design specs. Full thickness mahogany neck with carbon fiber reinforcements along with a 2 way adjustable truss rod.
Very full and resonate sound. This guitar is not shy. I will post more videos as I find the time to make them. Please email any questions.

Red Spruce top (Adirondack). Graduated top thickness.
Sitka spruce braces. The top was tuned. Moderately scalloped.
Ebony fretboard and bridge.
2 1/4" saddle spacing, 1 3/4" nut
Grover tuners
Macacauba back and sides from Nicaragua. This wood is used for marimba bars and is called "the wood that sings". Very hard glassy tap tone very similar to Brazilian in feel.
Curly maple bindings.

The neck is very full. Similar to the older Martin 000-18A's. If you like a thin neck profile this is not for you.
Hand applied shellac finish. Thin but protective.
Comes with a nice newer hardshell case.

I will have a few more 00's ready in the next few months. Custom orders are welcome. Wait time on a custom is about 3-4 months. I have many sets of nice tonewood. Lots of Brazilian rosewood. Torrefied tops and bracing are available.
