Even though we've been constantly impressed with the work from the Martin Guitar Co.'s Custom Shop, this 0-42, in Madagascar and Engelmann Spruce, is an exceptionally good-sounding guitar--it'll be ringing in our memories for quite a while. The tone is hugely warm, with remarkable blossom to each note. The light top responds immediately, yet it has enough stiffness to handle traditional flatpicking with ease. This guitar is so sonorous and musical, we think you'll have as a hard a time putting it down as we have. It was sold through our shop when new, and has been lovingly maintained by its original owner. Excellent overall condition, with K&K pure mini pickup added. Priced with deluxe Martin hard case.
