A Unique Small-body A/E from Martin

The Martin 00-17SE 6-string acoustic-electric guitar is for players looking for a vintage-style guitar with a unique look. The combination of spruce, mahogany, and rosewood is used for the rich harmonics. The 00 body style and 12-fret design deliver a sound that is focused in the midrange for a punchy and powerful tone, which the onboard custom electronics amplifies to perfection. And the 00-17SE boasts a no-nonsense look that works onstage or in your living room. The Martin 00-17SE combines some of the most popular elements in vintage acoustic-electric guitar construction with modern updates to the guitar's playability.

Martin 00-17SE Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Vintage construction, modern playability
  • Sonically rich wood combination
  • Proprietary electronics
  • Streamlined appearance
Vintage construction, modern playability

The Martin 00-17SE acoustic-electric guitar has the popular Grand Concert body that has been a favorite among performing guitarists for over 100 years. Its compact body delivers rich low end, while giving each note a powerful midrange that cuts right through an ensemble. The neck joins the body at the twelfth fret for a total scale length just over 24.5". And the neck is built with Martin's Modified Low Oval profile with High Performance Taper to appeal to modern players' demands.

Sonically rich wood combination

The mahogany, spruce, and rosewood combination used on the 00-17SE is exceptionally popular for the way it balances warmth, detail, and a wide frequency response. The solid Sitka spruce top offers great stiffness-to-weight ratio to get maximum volume and power from your strings. The solid mahogany back and sides ensure your tone stays even across the frequency range, while delivering plenty of warmth. And the rosewood fretboard also contributes to the rich harmonic warmth of the guitar.

Proprietary electronics

Martin and Fishman have been working together for over 30 years in an effort to build the best acoustic-electric guitars on the market. And they recently teamed up again to create the Matrix VT Enhance pickup system that you'll find in the 00-17SE. This system consists of Fishman's popular Matrix under-saddle pickup and a new Enhance element that can be blended into the signal separately via the soundhole-mounted controls. The Enhance function lets the natural sounds of the guitar come through, which is ideal for players using techniques such as body tapping.

Streamlined appearance

Both modern players who want a striking-looking instrument and lovers of vintage Martins will love the straightforward appearance of the 00-17SE. The guitar's minimal fretboard inlays, simple ivoroid binding, and lack of pickguard give it the look of a well-loved prize from the pre-war era. And Martin's satin finish helps enhance the tone of the guitar by letting the woods move and breathe naturally. Now you can buy a brand-new Martin from Sweetwater and get a pre-war Martin experience.
