Martin Limited Edition 000E Black Walnut Ambertone Acoustic-Electric Guitar

$1,899.00

 Player's Perspective

We always love it when Martin pumps out limited edition runs. These guitars have classic Martin tone, styling, and quality but with a look all of their own and some black walnut back and sides. Blending the warmth of rosewood and balanced response of mahogany, this guitar would sound absolutely killer in the studio or on stage.

Fingerpickers will certainly dig the natural balance between the lows and highs, and strummers will appreciate the way that simple open-position chords blend together. Recording is a breeze with these guitars as well - you won't get as many weird EQ spikes in certain places. George Martin used to like to record the Beatles using only all-mahogany guitars because he claimed that there would be no need to adjust the EQ on the guitars afterward since it's so balanced coming out of the instrument. But many players prefer the sound of rosewood for the backs and sides because of the deep bass response and shimmery highs that it can produce. The black walnut gives you the best of both worlds, in a sense.

The 000 body style is comfortable and sleek to accompany an easy-to-play neck. This delivers a beautiful and very musical package, as one would expect from Martin.
