Came across this when surfing the Martin website.
It’s a 000 12 fret that comes with cowboy artwork by William Matthews. Top is sitka spruce with Martin’s Vintage Tone System (VTS) and the back is the rare and stunning goncalo alves.
While I have read about this wood in Warmoth’s website in their fretboard wood options, this is probably the first time I see it in a production model, LE or not. Beautiful grains on show here. Simply stunning.
A closer look at the paintwork.
Retails at US$3999. Attractive price for a piece of art.
