Limited to a run of 114, this is your chance to get a high-quality Martin hybrid with rare tonewoods and quality electronics.
The CS-00S-14 is a premium "Style 42" 12-fret slotted-head fingerstyle model crafted with rare Honduras rosewood back and sides for incredible resonance, sustain, and tone. Honduran rosewood is celebrated among the guitar building community as a replacement for rare and expensive Brazilian rosewood. To accompany this beautiful wood, the top is made of a torrefied (temperature aged) Swiss spruce. Martins temperature aging process ages the top and allows it to resonate and sing like the vintage Martins of the Golden Era.
The cell structure of the Swiss spruce matches that of the tops of the best-sounding vintage models observed by the Martin team. On the first strum you will hear crystal-clear treble, balanced mids, and a defined, punchy bottom end unlike any guitar you've played. Lightly play the instrument and it will come alive with a sonic pallet that is sure to excite the most advanced player. The instrument also features a new ultra lightweight non-adjustable carbon fiber neck reinforcement for stability and an increase in sustain. And here is one feature you wont find on your vintage Martin: onboard electronics. The CS-00S-14 features the unobtrusive plug-and-play Fishman Aura VT electronics. The Aura VT gives you one sound image that closely replicates the sound of the CS-00S-14 being played into a world-class vintage microphone. Martin made only 114 of these exclusive instruments for the world. Inventory is limited, so call the experts at Private Reserve to select one of these truly amazing instruments.
