Wide open. Take the Martin Custom Shop team, add premium tonewoods, then a few years’ playing since 2012—and the result is this expressive, articulate slope shoulder 12-fret dread. Madagascar Rosewood back and sides pair up with Adirondack Spruce and an L.R. Baggs Element pickup, plus herringbone trim on top and zigzag backstrip. Slotted headstock with gold Grover tuners and a 25.4” scale and 1 11/16” nut will feel familiar for flatpickers. With the 12-fret body join, the voice on this Martin works very well for fingerpicking as well. Any Norman Blake fans out there? This is one to consider!
