Martin 000-17E Black Smoke Special


Brandnew and unplayed. Fantastic looks and sound, featuring a Fishman transducer - I like it so much, that I kept one example for myself, with which I played large parts of the Richie Arndt unplugged CD "Moments" and several live shows! + + + Comes with case, documents. Trade-ins welcome. + + + "The innovative Fishman Matrix VT Enhance transducer is an under-saddle pickup in combination with an Acoustic Imaging System. This system was developed by Martin and Fishman in a joint effort and customized for each model. By blending in the Image signal, the natural sound of the instrument will be enhanced in studio microphone quality, without being prone to feedback. Inside the upper half of the sound hole, there are volume and tone controls, while at the lower half the Image signal can be blended in. Thus, a very natural and genuine acoustic sound can be achieved, much like a condenser mike, but without the feedback. - Size: 000-14 fret, Top: solid Sitka spruce.
