Martin 000-12E Koa Electro Acoustic
This Martin 00012E Koa Electro Acoustic provides an amazing opportunity for players who have always dreamed of owning a Koa guitar. The acoustic features a Koa fine veneer back and sides, which is made from Koa hardwood bonded to an African Mahogany core. This delivers an environmentally friendly alternative to solid Koa, with the same beautiful natural wood grain, and a more appealing price point.
The 00012E compliments this Koa fine veneer back and sides with a Sitka Spruce top to balance out the treble frequencies, creating a warm and deliciously rich tone. This partners wonderfully with the covert Fishman MX-T preamp, providing clear, natural sounding amplification as well as discrete controls and a tuner hidden in the soundhole itself!
In addition, not only are you getting the distinctive sonic properties of Koa, but also the highly desired look, with the natural wood grain and offset black binding presenting a seriously jaw dropping aesthetic. The 000 body shape is comfortable for extended play sessions and performances, while being versatile in its ability to suit most players and play styles. Other features of note would be the Mother-of-Pearl patterned rosette and fingerboard inlays, a gloss finish and the included soft-shell gig bag.
The Martin 00012E Koa Electro Acoustic is a welcome addition to Martin's already daunting lineup of quality guitars, offering a different flavour of sound, a unique blend of subtle modern appointments and simply stunning natural woods, all wrapped up in a glorious gloss finish.
