Product Description

The Martin 000C classical acoustic-electric delivers the very best in Martin craftsmanship in a nylon-string guitar, complete with a Fishman F1 Analog electronic system to project its smooth, bright tone with the clarity it deserves. Masterfully crafted by the luthiers at Martin, the 000C provides a one-of-a-kind playing experience.

A Nylon-String Guitar for Steel-String Players

In response to the many Martin players who chose the limited-edition 000CDG, built in memory of Chris Martin's late brother, Doug Greth, Martin has expanded upon this unique "crossover" instrument with the 000C Nylon. It is truly a hybrid instrument, combining features of a traditional Martin steel-string guitar with those associated with a classical nylon-string guitar. The top is crafted of solid Sitka spruce and braced with a unique A-Frame "X" brace system. Yet this bracing system is equally responsive to lighter nylon strings, without inhibiting tone or volume.

Unique Dimensions for a Classical Crossover

The 12-fret, low profile neck features an 18 inch radius arched (versus flat) fingerboard like a steel string, but with a classic width, 1-7/8 inches at the nut and 2-5/16 inches at the 12th fret. The bridge is in the classic style with tie block and drop in saddle. Bridge string spacing is a wider 2-5/16 inches as well. Even the 000C's headstock is unique: square tapered like the traditional Martin steel string style, but slotted to accommodate classical nylon strings. Each guitar is fitted with onboard Fishman F1 Analog electronics, too.

The result? A versatile, great sounding and playing guitar, no matter whether you play acoustic or acoustic electric... or both.

Features

- Solid sapele back and sides and solid Sitka spruce top provide outstanding tone and balance
- Comfortable 000-12 body shape with cutaway to reach highest frets
- A-frame "X" brace system for maximum stability and sound focus
- Black Richlite fingerboard with satin neck finish providing excellent playability
- Fishman F1 Analog electronics for accurate and clear amplification

4 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Awesome guitar!!"
Overall: I've bought and sold several nice classical guitars over the years (average cost about $2000 each), cedar and spruce tops, solid rosewood. This one is at the front of the pack. Arrived ready to play, good set up. The tone is clear and well-balanced, without a dull spot or any buzz on the fretboard. Good projection. I really appreciate the slightly thinner neck, since I'm not primarily a classical guitarist although I do play fingerstyle and classical pieces. It's a great cross-over for me. I bought the "blemished" model at a reduced price, but it's basically new, not a problem that I can see. It's a terrific instrument. I read the negative review on this site about this guitar, and it sounds like nonsense. This is my second Martin guitar and they've both been superior quality. I would not hesitate to recommend this model.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Feels great, smells great! But will not recommend"
Overall: My girlfriend actually purchased this guitar for me a little more than a month ago and I was 'by far' so excited as I've been very please and happy with my Martin OMCPA3 guitar. upon receiving it, the feel was great. The neck is slightly wider than an acoustic steel string guitar, BUT, ever so slightly narrow than a traditional classical guitar. Anyhow, upon playing this first guitar, I noticed that the intonation was off. The D, B and high E string would go extremely flat when traveling up the fret board. Even the onboard tuner was verifying this coincidence. So I spoke with a zzounds rep who told me to wait for a week. Anyhow, during this week I took it to a Martin certified luthier who told me that it was a bad guitar and that I should send it back. So once this week was up, I ended up sending that guitar back after working with the polite reps. Upon sending the Martin back, they immediately shipped a 2nd guitar back to me (which is rare for any company to do). So, upon receiving this guitar, I checked the features and found everything to be as the latter guitar, but the intonation was still off. The high E string on this instrument actually held up and was right on with my Boss Tuner and even with the onboard tuner. The only strings that are giving me problems now is the A and D string. Same thing, after the luthier inspected and played, they said to try and send it back. Another thing I noticed is that when I pluck an open A string on the instrument, it makes this 'hollow buzz' noise that eventually grows into a slight annoyance. And don't get me wrong, the action is already pretty high. Overall, if the action was great, and most of all, if the intonation was as great as my Martin and Taylor guitar, I would keep it. I am intending to look for options on sending this guitar back and getting a different classical guitar. I hope this review helps everyone out in making a decision and I hope that I only have received 'lemon guitars'. It is quite possible.
