The Martin 000-17 is a fantastic, Sitka and mahogany acoustic guitar with a great character and tone. Martin make some top of the range accoustics which can be found on the biggest stages and tours across the world.

This auditorium acoustic has a great feel to it and a comfortable neck. Whether you play mostly chords, finger style or a mix of the two it'll feel great and the articualtion will bring out the best of your tone.

Stunning finish

The Sitka top on this guitar has a great looking sunburst finish that Martin call Whiskey Sunset. It conjurs up the feel of an old, worn in but well maintained country acoustic. It would look great in a blues, country or folk project.

Here's what Martin have to say about the 000-17 Whiskey Sunset:

The 000-17 Whiskey Sunset Auditorium model boasts a rich, warm sunburst finish that will delight any player with its aesthetic beauty.

Skilfully crafted from a solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides with grained ivoroid binding, a modified low oval neck with a Performing Artist taper, and a Guatemalan rosewood fingerboard and bridge, this guitar produces beautiful dynamic tones that will please the most discerning musician.
