Yup, the Martin 000-12E Koa Acoustic-Electric Guitar in Natural offers KOA at an unprecedented price! Martin has concocted this model with a Fine Veneer of Koa allowing players to add this tonewood to their collection at a far more affordable price-point than ever before! This acoustic-electric guitar comes with a Fishman MX_T Electronic System making this guitar ready for anything you can throw at it.
With the 000-12E Koa in Martin’s lineup, now more players can turn their dreams of owning a koa guitar into reality. The back and side of this gorgeous model are constructed with koa fine veneer, which is an environmentally conscious, alternative-wood option, made by bonding koa hardwood to an African mahogany core. The result is the show-stopping look of a koa guitar at a great price. But there is so much more to this guitar. Aside from the balance and comfort of the 000, you will get mother-of-pearl-patterned rosette and fingerboard inlay, a full-gloss body, a soft-shell gig bag, Fishman® MX-T electronics, and Martin’s Authentic Acoustic Lifespan® 2.0 strings. With all that, the 000-12E Koa is worthy of any stage.
The neck is made from Select Hardwood (most likely Sapele, Cedar, or Mahogany) and then topped with a fingerboard made of Certified Richlite. The neck is shaped to the Performing Artist Neck Profile and sports the High-Performance Taper. This is a very easy neck to play thanks to the perfect combination of dimensions.
