Martin Custom Shop 000-17E Black Smoke Acoustic Electric Guitar Torrified Top
You read that right - for the same price of the normal 000-17E, you can have this Custom Shop made 000 with a torrefied spruce top for the same price!!
This Martin Custom Shop 000-17E is a Manchester Music Mill exclusive, you won't find one anywhere else! We have more on the way too!
The new Black Smoke and Whiskey Sunset finishes were very popular so we decided to design our own, loaded with the Fishman Matrix VT Enhance pickup, and boasting a torrified spruce top, normally seen on models costsing many thousands more! In a side by side comparison the difference is night and day. The highs and mids are richer and more harmonic, the lows are bigger, and the overall tone is nice and airy.
All other specs are the same as the 000-17E Black Smoke.
