Martin 00L Earth
All of our Martin 00L Earth guitars are brand new, factory-fresh, and come with a Martin softshell case and Martin Lifetime Warranty.
The Martin 00L Earth is the most environmentally friendly acoustic guitar in the world. And it is certainly one of the most beautiful guitars to feature a soundboard embellished by a professional artist.
This short-scale, slope-shoulder Grand Concert size instrument takes C. F. Martin’s commitment to protecting and preserving Mother Nature’s flora and fauna to new heights. It features a glorious depiction of our home planet as seen from outer space, emblazed across the front of the first guitar that is both 100% plastic-free and built from 100% FSC® certified wood.
The original artwork was created by the talented environmental activist Robert F. Goetzl. The guitar is handmade in Nazareth, PA, from world-class, all-solid tonewoods.
The back and sides are shimmering African sapele, known for its clear mahogany tone that enhances the wide dynamic range and bottom end warmth of the Sitka spruce top from the Pacific Northwest, supported by 1/4" scalloped braces. The short-scale High Performance neck is carved from African sipo, prized for its strength and stability.
That’s not all! The body is bound with flamed European maple and graced with wooden detailing instead of plastic. And African ebony is used for the bridge, the headstock faceplate, and the fingerboard with its figured sapele fret position markers. And all of this exquisite wood was harvested from environmentally sustainable forests and is 100% FSC certified.
The Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) is a non-profit, non-governmental entity dedicated to insuring responsible management of the world's forests. CEO Chris Martin has long been a world leader in encouraging and expanding methods of business and manufacturing to better operate in environmentally responsible ways, including the preservation of endangered species. He has partnered with the FSC on many occasions, but this new 00L Earth is the first model specifically dedicated to environmental sustainability and combating Climate Change.
Even the attractive gig bag that comes with the 00L Earth is made from sustainable hemp. It is another first for Martin. It is so good looking and so well designed that we are hoping they will start offering this same gig bag in larger sizes to fit all Martin models!
