I will never sell it, in fact, I'll buy another to use in performances! Martin should consider building this guitar again -- it brings beauty and tone in outstanding amounts. Perhaps they should have a standard model (000-35 or 000-41) based upon this gem.
Where Obtained: Consignment sale
See EMP-1.html for full details.
I picked it up, played finger-style and took it home. No questions asked -- love at first chord.
Sound Quality:
This is acoustic and is the fulest tone of any of my guitars. Dreadnaughts sacrifice tone for volume, the 000 body delivers the tone from the Ovangkol wood and light bracing.
Being lightly braced, keep it in the case!
