The Martin 00L-17 acoustic guitar has the popular Grand Concert body that has been a favorite among performing guitarists for many decades. Its body delivers rich low end, while giving each note a powerful midrange that cuts right through an ensemble. The neck joins the body at the 14th fret for a total scale length just over 24.5". And the neck is built with Martin's Modified Low Oval profile with High Performance Taper to appeal to moder player's demands.
Sonically rich wood combination
The mahogany, spruce, and rosewood wood combination used on the 00L-17 is exceptionally popular for the way it balances warmth, detail, and a wide frequency response. The solid Sitka spruce top offers great stiffness-to-weight ratio to get maximum volume and power from your strings. The solid mahogany back and sides ensure your tone stays even across the frequency range, while delivering plenty of warmth. And the rosewood fretboard also contributes to the rich harmonic warmth of the guitar.
Both modern players who want a striking-looking instrument and lovers of vintage Martins will love the straight-forward appearance of the 00L-17. The guitar's minimal fretboard inlays and simple ivoroid binding and pickguard give it the look of a well-loved prize from the pre-war era. And Martin's Black Smoke satin finish helps enhance the tone of the guitar by letting the woods move and breath naturally. Now you can buy a brand-new Martin from Sweetwater and get a pre-war Martin experience.
