Martin, C.F.: M-36

(Item ID: M-36    Serial#: 2149336)

Martin, C.F. M-36 0000 with 3-Piece Rosewood Back and Sitka Spruce Top with Aging Toner

Consistently one of the best all around guitars that Martin makes, the M-36 0000 model is what every OM wishes it could be when it grows up. Its larger body size in combination with the same narrow body dimensions shared by all of the 0 Series Martin guitars produces a wonderful, mature voice marked by an alluring depth, richness, and definition that easily adapts to any guitar style. If you have never sampled one, prepare to be pleasantly surprised when you do.

This model, like most from Martin's Standard Series, has been "re-imagined" for 2018, and as such, there are new features to distinguish it from its forbearers. Two that are principal include its neck and body trim.

The M-36 is now fitted with Martin's Modified Low Oval/High Performance Taper neck. First introduced in Martin's Performance Series guitars, this neck, with its slimmer overall shape, has become the default choice for the new Standard Series guitars. The "Low Oval" feature means that the profile of the back of the neck is changed - its mass is reduced slightly producing a contour that is very hand friendly. And the "High Performance Taper" refers to the neck's more parallel shape transitioning from lower to higher neck positions. With a wider 1 3/4" width at the nut and narrower 2 1/8" width at the 12th fret, the overall feel going from low to high is more uniform. Additionally, the strings are now spaced closer together at the bridge - 2 5/32" instead of 2 3/16". The combination of these features, plus the neck's smooth satin finish makes this guitar's playability remarkably smooth and comfortable.

With respect to its appearance, the new M-36 still features a 3-piece Indian rosewood back with rosewood sides and a Sitka spruce top with aging toner, but the stark white celluloid formerly used for this model's body bindings, fingerboard bindings, heel cap and end piece have all been replaced with a warm "Antique" white celluloid. This a new feature lends a very appealing vintage flavor to the guitar's overall appearance.

This guitar includes a deluxe archtop hardshell case.
