Enough Aesthetic Beauty and Warm Tone to Delight Any Serious Musician
The Martin 000-17 Whiskey Sunset Auditorium acoustic in a beautiful Whiskey Sunset satin finish delivers a look, sound, and feel that is nothing short of amazing! The 000-17 sports a solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides with grained ivoroid binding, giving it a rich and full tone with plenty of volume and killer vintage looks.
The Auditorium acoustic (000) size is an ideal compromise for player comfort, volume and projection, and the modified low oval neck with a Performing Artist taper and plek-dressed frets has a very comfortable feel with incredibly low action. With premium appointments like a bone nut, bone saddle, and Golden Age Relic Nickel tuners, you will enjoy stable tuning and perfect intonation.
