❌SOLD❌  Martin 000-42 Standard Series Steel String Guitar Natural

This is a beautiful Martin 000-42 Standard Series, a spectacular sounding instrument with just the right amount of inlay. The 000 body size was introduced in 1902 with a 12-fret, 24.9 inch scale length neck  and in 1934 gained the ‘new’ 14-fret neck.   The OM or Orchestra Model is based on this guitar, but with a 14-fret, 25.4 inch scale length neck. The ’42’ in the name refers to the Style 42 materials and inlay set, introduced in 1858, and discontinued in 1943.

❌SOLD❌ Heritage H150 Custom Classic Goldtop, 2003

The Heritage H150 is based on the classic Les Paul design, and built in the former Gibson plant in Parsons Street in Kalamazoo, Michigan. This tried and true design features a figured Maple cap on a Mahogany body, Mahogany for the neck and Indian Rosewood for the bound fingerboard. The dimensions and finishes also draw from the same source, and the tapered Heritage headstock is one of the few visual cues as to what these excellent guitars are.

❌SOLD❌ Martin 00-14F Cutaway Guitar Toasted Burst, 2015

❌SOLD❌  Martin 00-14F Cutaway Guitar Toasted Burst, 2015

Here’s an unusual guitar from the Custom Shop – a Martin 0014F cutaway guitar with ‘Toasted Burst’ top finish, built during 2015 in very gently used condition.  This lovely venetian-cutaway model has a Sitka Spruce top, Mahogany sides, back and neck, and Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. The 00-14F is a recent and custom-run model, and does not at present appear in the Martin catalog or website.  This example is in overall quite good condition with very little wear.  The thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish is showing signs of naturally sinking, and is very clean with only the lightest scuffing.
