          Comments about Martin 000-17SM Acoustic Guitar:

          I really love the smaller 000 Martins. Just easier to transport and take anywhere. So comfortable to play for hours. I didn't expect 17SM to have such a glossy finish but I was pleasantly surprised by the mirror finish. I also own a 00015M which has no gloss. So these make a great pair.

          The slotted headstock adds a cool vibe. Tone is rich and full- as expected on a Martin. Overall the guitar is beautiful with the look of a vintage instrument.

          Highly recommend.

              I wanted a smaller bodied guitar that was good for all uses - strumming, flat-picking and finger style. This guitar is great for everything. Recommended!

              Comments about Martin 000-17SM Acoustic Guitar:

              A joy to play. Combines vintage features (slotted headstock, small 000 body, mahogany back and sides, bone saddle and nut) with new features (back, sides and neck are satin finish mahogany, Sitka spruce top is finished gloss). Set up is easy to play. This guitar has a rich, warm tone (thanks to the mahogany) and a surprisingly lively, clear resonance thanks to the Sitka top. The 1-3/4-inch wide nut makes for easy fingerpicking, but this guitar can do it all: equally good for strumming and/or singer/songwriter style. One of the best sounding, mist versatile Martins in this price range. Well worth checking out.
