It's a resurrection. In homage to their early Style 17 guitars, Martin is making two new models. There's a Dreadnought, with its fat bottom end and smooth, articulate highs, and a 000-12 Fret, producing a tight, focused sound that's great for finger or flatpicking. 17 Series appointments include solid mahogany back and sides, a lovely shaded solid Sitka spruce top, and tortoise color binding with an understated single ring rosette. Under the hood, you'll find A-Frame braces made of 5/16" Sitka spruce and fingerboard position inlays of short pattern diamonds & squares. Either model is available left-handed at no additional charge.
