Auditorium Acoustic With Vintage Styling and a Balanced Sound
The left handed Martin 000-17E Black Smoke acoustic guitar features vintage looks and modern appointments that give it a balanced tone and silky playability. Featuring a Solid Sitka Spruce top with Mahogany back and sides in a vintage Black Smoke finish, the lefty Martin 000-17E delivers rich low end tones with balanced mids and ample harmonics that make the 000-17E a favorite among fingerstyle players. With an auditorium size body and a scale length of 24.9“, this lefty Martin 000-17E Black Smoke acoustic delivers premium comfort and a focused sound.
The modern appointments that make this Martin 000-17E so comfortable to play include Martin’s Modified Low Oval neck profile with High Performance Taper and a silky satin finish that makes playing this left handed 000-17E a real pleasure. A 20-fret Rosewood fingerboard also adds to the harmonic richness and warmth of this Martin’s tone.
The Martin left handed 000-17E comes stage ready with Fishman Matrix VT Enhance electronics. The Matrix Enhance system combines Fishman's popular Matrix under-saddle pickup with a new Enhance element that allows you to control the signal with soundhole-mounted controls. The Enhance element allows the natural sound of the guitar to come through, making it ideal for fingerstyle players and those who use techniques like body-tapping.
The 000-17E‘s straight forward appointments, including simple fretboard inlays and minimal ivoroid binding and pickguard are combined with premium hardware including Golden Age Relic Nickel tuners, a Rosewood bridge and compensated bone nut and saddle, giving this southpaw Martin 000-17E a distinctly modern feel while preserving that prized Martin Pre-War aesthetic.
