Martin 00-14F Cutaway Guitar Toasted Burst, 2015

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.

❌SOLD❌ Martin 00-18 Steel String Guitar Natural, 1950

❌SOLD❌ Martin 00-18 Steel String Guitar Natural, 1950

Here is a lovely Martin 0018 steel string guitar built during April of 1950, very glossy and having had a neck reset for great playability! As an ’18’ style model, the Martin 0018 construction features a Spruce top (Sitka since the early 1940’s) and Mahogany for the sides, back, body blocks and neck. The bridge, fingerboard and head plate are Rosewood – and as this guitar was built before 1967, that means Brazilian Rosewood.

Martin 00-28 Standard Natural Finish

Martin 00-28 Standard Natural Finish

The Martin 0028 has been built for over a century, with the first known example appearing in 1898.   The first mention of the 00 body size dates to 1877!  Martin’s 00 body was considered enormous when introduced, and was the largest size until the first 000 sized guitar appeared in 1902, followed a decade later by the D body size built for the Ditson company.

Martin J-40 Jumbo Steel String Acoustic Guitar

Martin J-40 Jumbo Steel String Acoustic Guitar

Here we have a brand new C. F. Martin J-40. The J-40 features a tight-waisted jumbo body shape, built from a Sitka spruce top and Indian rosewood for the back and sides. Mahogany is used for the neck, and ebony for the bound fingerboard and bridge. This is one of the few new J-40s available anywhere, and given the world wide and industry wide impact the pandemic has had, they will continue to be hard to obtain.

❌SOLD❌ Martin D35 with LR Baggs M1a Pickup Natural, 2008

❌SOLD❌ Martin D35 with LR Baggs M1a Pickup Natural, 2008

The Martin D35, recognizable for its distinctive three-piece back, has been part of Martin’s standard lineup since its 1965 introduction. The design was generated for a practical reason – it allowed use of smaller sections of Rosewood that could not fit on a two-piece back as used on the D-28 or D-45. While the D28 and D35 share many construction features, the D35 can have a bit more tonal range and better developed low and high end response and balance.
