The Martin 000-12E Koa Electro Acoustic Guitar in Natural is a premium piece of guitar from the legendary manufacturer known the world over for construction quality. With this addition to Martin's lineup now more players can turn their dreams of owning a koa guitar into a reality.
Combining a Sitka Spruce top with a Koa fine veneer back and sides this guitar projects a full-bodied acoustic tone with aplomb. The back and sides are made by bonding koa hardwood to an African Mahogany core which is an environmentally conscious, alternative-wood option that gives a show-stopping look and head-turning sound. This combination gives you a sweet and smooth sound that's bright but retains enough warmth to not sound thin, with the Martin X-Bracing ensuring that your notes ring out clearly and concisely.
The 000-12E Koa features a Select Hardwood neck construction that's hand-rubbed to ensure a smooth feel whether you're fretting chords or utilising single note playing. The neck is sculpted to the Performing Artist shape, ensuring a comfortable fit for any player whilst the High-Performance Taper means you'll be cosy no matter where you play on the neck. An FSC Certified Richlite fretboard feels comfortable under your fingers and looks fantastic with Mother-of-Pearl inlays, joined to the body with Martin's trademark Mortise & Tenon Neck Joint.
Fishman MX-T Electronics
The Martin 000-12E Koa features unique Fishman MX-T electronics system, an innovative design that retains the typical dynamics and accurate Fishman sound found in many guitars across the world. The MX-T has a built-in tuner, mounted inside the soundhole itself so you can tune quickly whilst on stage. Simply press the button that's handily located at the bottom of the soundhole and the tuner will automatically mute output when engaged to spare the ears of your audience.
