Small, 12-fret, short-scale instruments are among our favorite acoustics here at Capital Guitars Offered here is Martin Custom Shop 00-45, number 1674509, which was built in 2013 and remains in virtually unplayed condition. ​​

This short scale (24.9") beauty utilizes full hide glue construction. It has an Adirondack Spruce top matched up with 1/4" scalloped Adirondack Spruce bracing. The back and sides are made from a gorgeous set of very straight-grained Madagascar Rosewood. The body binding, neck and headstock are bound in grained ivoroid. As one of Martin's top of the line guitars, this guitar is fully trimmed with Pau pearl and Abalone. It has a 12-fret neck with Martin's Low Profile neck shape. The Black Ebony fretboard has a 16" radius, Style 45 abalone snowflake inlays and a 1-7/8" bone nut. It has an Ebony belly bridge with 2-5/16" spacing, a compensated bone saddle and Abalone snowflake inlays. The slotted headstock has a Madagascar Rosewood overlay and side mounted gold Waverly tuners. It has a fully adjustabe truss rod.  The guitar is fully finished in clear gloss and is drop-dead gorgeous!

This guitar's beauty is not just skin deep, however. It plays with superb ease and is setup with 12th fret string heights of 5/64" on the low E side and 4/64" on the high E side. As the provided sound sample demonstrates, the tone is vintage Martin. Even though the guitar has yet to be broken in, the tone is rich and woody with lots of note to note clarity and midrange punch. While meant for fingerstyle, you can really dig-in with a flat pick if you like. Either way, the output of this little beauty will amaze you. The included video is of a nearly identical, but not the exact guitar being offered here.

This guitar has seen little if any play and remains in mint condition and could likely be sold as new. The frets show no observable wear. It comes with it's similarly clean Martin Geib-style case.

To commission a guitar with these specs would cost you approximately $15K today. Get this mint 2013 example for thousands less. Make this incredible Martin yours today!
