Retro Tone at Any Level

“Even without plugging in, the Martin 00-15E Retro produces satisfying tone, volume, and projection from its comfortably small acoustic guitar body. Regardless of the builder, guitars with a mahogany top share unique tonal properties, which have always challenged my skill at putting tone into words.

    1. If it is possible it is something you would have to get through the Custom Shop. Contact your local Martin dealer to ask.

      Martin recently made a blue guitar in their series of Eric Clapton models, and it was a spectacular guitar in terms of tone. It is a long-scale OM. All other Clapton models are short-scale 000s. The body size is a little bigger than this one.

      So it is entirely possible the answer is yes, the Custom Shop could do this for you. But I bet the up-charge is pretty steep. But I bet the Blue Clapton, as I call it, would actually be cheaper. It couldn’t hurt to ask though.
