Martin's 17 series guitars are a special breed. The roots of the classic Martin tone are evident here, but the voice is much more airy and lively, compared to the robust, warm bassy tone often associated with Martin's scalloped-braced offerings. The 17s are snappy, light & bright - without sounding thin or nasal. The finish is deliberately lo-fi and they almost look like something out of a 1920's catalog. These smaller 17-series instruments come in 3 sizes: 00-17S 12-fret, 00L-17 (slope shoulder) and 000-17 14-fret. Today we're taking a closer look at the Martin 000-17s.
