Elegant Design with Superb Sound
The Martin 000-17E has a satin black smoke finish with contrasting grained ivoroid binding and pick-guard which show off the understated beauty of this guitar. The choice of a sitka spruce top delivers a bright and clear tone with a warm character. This particular tonewood is extremely vibrant providing an ideal platform for transmission of sound on any size and style of stringed instrument. It is the primary top wood for Martin guitars due to its straight, uniform grain, longevity and tensile strength. The sitka spruce top-tone is balanced out well by the mahogany back and sides, as mahogany is denser and produces a richer tone, with emphasised warmth in the mid and low ranges. Mahogany also contains distinct character of soft warmth, but is well balanced, with a bite of its own. Mahogany is used a lot in the acoustic world, because it is relatively economical, durable, attractive, easy to work with, and resonant.
Due to it's rich heritage, mahogany backs and sides can be heard on loads of old recordings, and the inherent character of the tone lends itself well to blues and roots music to this day. In addition, it also provides a punchier and darker tone, with a prominent mid-range. The rosewood fingerboard and bridge pop against the rich, black satin finish and add extra detail to the overall appearance of this guitar.
Select Hardwood Neck
The select hardwood neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that provides a warm, bright attack, and a stunning sparkly tone that really shines through when using finger picking techniques. The select hardwood neck is sleek, modern, and high performance for enhanced playability. Martin have modified the way they craft their guitar necks, it has a low oval profile, with performing artist taper, and 16" string spacing for a very easy playability. The Martin 000-17E neck is finished in satin for a comfortable play.
Martin Standard X Bracing
The Martin 000-17E has an X bracing pattern, which prevents your guitar from collapsing under tension. Bracing is very important when it comes to your guitar's durability, it reinforces a guitar's top and back. Scalloped bracing stops your guitar from collapsing under string tension and shapes the guitar's sound. Standard X scalloped bracing allows the top to vibrate more freely yet remains incredibly stable.
Fishman Matrix VT Enhance NT1 Preamp
The Martin 000-17E comes equipped with Fishman's classic Acoustic Matrix Natural preamp. The sophisticated preamp features an ergonomic sound-hole, mounted volume and tone rotary controls. The benefits of the Matrix VT is that there in no need for control holes to be cut into the side of your guitar, and it is discreet and simple to use.
Martin Guitar Playability - ENHANCED
For 183 years, Martin have been at the forefront of guitar innovation and premier craftsmanship, bringing consumers some of the best acoustic guitars possible. The iconic Martin tone known worldwide, playability has become an important characteristic that sets Martin guitars aside from others within the acoustic world. Martin's manufacturing processes have been perfected by their Plek machines, the Pleking process helps Martin guitars maintain their undeniable tone.
The Plek Pro has been developed for use in guitar production factories as a tool that not only does precise fingerboard dressing, but also helps with quality control. The computer controlled device scans and dresses the guitar under actual playing conditions, strung and tuned to pitch for using precise string tension emulation. This machine has been a major break through over the last decade, as its eye for detail identifies exactly what needs to be done for perfect fretwork. The Plek Pro delivers you with perfect results, raises the quality of the instrument, and gives you a beautifully toned, easy to play acoustic guitar.
