Martin 00 16E Granadillo Steel String Guitar

Martin 00 16E Granadillo Steel String Guitar

The new Martin 00 16E model starts from the classic 00, or Grand Concert body size, but in place of Mahogany or Indian Rosewood for the back and sides uses Granadillo. Granadillo is also known as Mexican Rosewood or Platymiscium Yucatanum. In Central and South America, it’s often used under the name Macacauba for musical instruments. Its density and hardness help it deliver a bit more top end than true Rosewoods, but still has bottom end and warmth.

Eastman Strings because we’ve found them to be excellent value. Based on proven designs, Eastman guitars are well built, well finished and deliver tone and playability. Part of the Eastman Strings Traditional series, the Eastman E10OOSS is a small body (00 size) sunburst finished guitar featuring a solid Adirondack Spruce top and solid Mahogany for back, sides and neck, with rosewood for the fingerboard, headplate and bridge. The tuners are open-style with “butter bean” shaped metal buttons.

The C F Martin 00-18 steel string guitar has its origins in 1898, and was originally built with Rosewood back and sides until 1917, and braced for gut strings until 1923. It stayed in production until 1995, and was brought back online in 2016 with the occasional custom shop or signature model made available in the in-between time.In the form we’re most familiar with, the Martin 00-18 steel string guitar uses Martin’s smaller ’00’ sized body, using Sitka Spruce top and braces paired with Mahogany for the sides, back, 14-fret neck, and body blocks.

❌SOLD❌  Larrivee OO Body Steel String Guitar Rosewood, 1976

Here is a lovely item from the past – a Larrivee OO body steel string guitar from 1976 in Toronto, just as The Twelfth Fret opened, with signatures from both Jean Larrivee (on the label) and Tony Duggan-Smith (discreetly engraved in the headstock inlay). At the time this guitar was built, I was just moving to The Twelfth Fret from the late Darryl Williams’ shop in Schomberg, Ontario, as the first Twelfth Fret employee.

❌ Sold ❌ Collings 001 Mh Mahogany Steel String Guitar, 2012

❌ Sold ❌ Collings 001 Mh Mahogany Steel String Guitar, 2012

The Collings 001 is based on a very traditional design that’s been a standard for over a century, and this example is built with Mahogany for the top, back and sides.  This fine guitar was built in Austin, Texas during 2012. Like every Collings we’ve seen, the build quality is exceptional, with excellent playability and great tone. It is good condition, and we’d rate and price it higher except that there is some subtle finish marking, visible only from close up – from more than a foot away, it’s nearly impossible to see it and doesn’t really show in the photos.
