This Martin Custom Shop 0-14 Fret features a solid Italian Alpine Spruce Top and solid Goncalo Alves Back and Sides. It was hand-selected at the Martin Guitars Factory by Empire Music Owner Joe Ravita. The Martin Guitar company makes some of the finest 0-14 Fret guitars that have ever been built. This Martin Custom Shop 0-14 Fret is a perfect example of their craftsmanship, design, and dedication to sourcing the best tonewoods. The Italian Alpine Spruce Top provides powerful, clear and vibrant tones. Trees grow very slowly at such high elevations that the annual rings are generally closely and evenly spaced. Wood is light enough to vibrate freely yet strong enough to withstand the tension of steel strings. The Italian Alpine Spruce has been paired with Goncalo Alves Back and Sides. Goncalo Alves comes from mostly from Central America to Brazil and has a striking striping to its look. Sonically, the Goncalo Alves delivers full tones that are lush and defined. It is often compared to Ovangkol and some Rosewoods. This small body Custom Shop model will give players tones that jump off the soundboard. The tones will be succinct and clean but won't be tinny. The 24.9" scale helps deliver extra ease in playability and extra bottom end. The 1/4" Scalloped Bracing allows for this guitar to create surprising output with ease. The easy to play 1 11/16" nut width matches well with the Full Thickness 30's Style Heel Neck Shape.
