With some guitars, there's a feel-good factor that you can't explain. That's how I felt about this 000-42 from Martin's Custom Shop. From the first moment, this guitar feels like as if you had already played it for years on hundreds of gigs. The neck with its medium profile is simply fantastic in the hand. When you strike the first chords, the instrument spoils you with an unbelievably balanced, rich sound that is simply top class, even for Martin. Unobtrusive at first, but with so much three-dimensionality and depth that you really can't stop here. Whether strumming or picking, this guitar shows new facets with every playing technique. The instrument comes in the rare custom shop finish and with a great, subtly grained top. The condition is - apart from a minimal play mark on the top - impeccable. Absolutely recommended for anyone looking for a compact acoustic guitar for all occasions - and possibly for life!
