A Unique Look for a 00-17

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

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

The Martin 00-17S acoustic 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 00-17S 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.

Streamlined appearance

Both modern players who want a striking-looking instrument and lovers of vintage Martins will love the straightforward appearance of the 00-17S. 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 Whiskey Sunset 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.

Martin 00-17S Acoustic Guitar Features:
  • Vintage-style acoustic guitar
  • Solid mahogany back and sides
  • Solid Sitka spruce top
  • Bone string nut and compensated saddle
  • Neck joins the body at the 12th fret
  • Compact body for a clear and focused sound
The Martin 00-17S is both striking and instantly comfortable.
