SOLD!!! C. F. Martin 000-15S Steel String Guitar Mahogany, 2006

The C. F. Martin 000-15S Steel String Guitar  body size looks back to Martin’s early history, first appearing in 1906 as the 000-18. Previously, the 0 and 00 sizes drew from Georg Stauffer and traditional designs. As far back as the 1820s, C F Martin worked with Stauffer in Vienna, Austria as shop foreman. In 1833 he moved to New York, finally settling in the more familiarly Germanic area of Nazareth, Pennsylvania. The early guitars built there strongly resemble the ‘0’ body size. These body designs produce a well balanced, even tone with good representation across the frequency range. As the body size increases, the potential for output volume does too – the 000 is the loudest of the group. The use of mahogany for the top provides a warm, rich tone, not quite as bright or sparkly as spruce can provide.

The Boucher Wild Goose 000 Cutaway Steel String is built using Adirondack spruce for the top and bracing – the Boucher shop is located in Quebec’s Adirondack mountains, a bit east of Quebec City on the South Shore, and the spruce is local.  These are great playing and sounding instruments.  Boucher now has two models, the Genuine Goose and the Studio Goose, with a satin or gloss finish, body sizes and appointments being the main differentiator.
