Fresh in from Nazareth, Pennsylvania is the CF Martin Custom Shop 00-14 Fret. This beaut model is one of our favourites to come from the custom shop.
With an incredible Sitka Spruce top featuring Martins Vintage Tone System treatment, you get a really dynamic and vibrant tone. Sitka responds really nicely to a players touch and offers some real sweet overtones. Pair that with the Mahogany back and sides and you have a tonal dream team. Finished with a Faux Tortoise pickguard and Madagascan Rosewood back binding. This is one premium guitar.
One of the defining features of this beautiful 00-14 Fret is the inclusion of an original New York City subway token within the headstock. On July 25th 1953, New York increased the subway fair to 15 cents. Instead of forcing users to carry three nickels for each ride the city introduced the Subway Token which was good for one ride. This particular token is known as the "Five Boroughs" token and features a Pentagram to represent each area of the city. This guitar was inspired by the spirit of creativity that moved above and below the streets of New York, a defining characteristic that still remains true to this day.
The neck is an absolute dream to play. With a Modified Low Oval neck shape, 16" radius, 24.84" scale length and a 1 3/4" nut width, this Martin is supremely comfortable and smooth underhand. The Black Ebony fingerboard is the perfect partner for this neck; beautifully crafted its a real treat to play.
This 00-14 Fret CF Martin Custom Shop might just be one of the coolest guitars we have seen here at Peach. You need to check this one out!
