Martin Custom Shop First Edition Woodsongs 0000 12 Fret (699)

Martin Custom Shop WoodSongs “I am primarily a finger-style guitarist and play 12-fret slot head Martin guitars exclusively. Always have. Here’s why: on a normal guitar when you strum a G chord you hear the wash of the chord tones. On the wider neck 12-fret Martin when you strum the same chord your hear the bell-like tones of the notes making up the chord. The clarity can be breath taking. It was those silver and golden bell-like tones merged with power and volume I was hoping for when thinking about the WoodSongs QUAD 28s. 

The 0000 body size is part of the guitar’s power. Bigger than the 000 and slightly smaller than a dreadnought it gives the best of both worlds. On the larger guitars like a D-35, the instrument sounds awesome in the room but every sound man on the planet has to EQ the low end down when you stand onstage. That alters the sound of the instrument dramatically, no matter what. The 000 size sounds perfect but the smaller body size makes you look like Gigantor. Thus, the slightly larger 0000-28s body of the WoodSongs QUAD. The bass strings have crisp power and the high strings have the silvery bell tones of a beautiful instrument. 

And the WoodSongs QUAD has natural volume and a long, clean sustain. It’s a finger picking cannon, a pro instrument for a serious artist and song writer. Take a visit to Willcutt Guitar Shoppe, sit yourself down in a quiet room and play one for yourself. This is truly the finest guitar I’ve ever heard and worth the effort. A guitar like this is an investment in yourself and your music. Nothing can make a good song and a good artist sound better than a magnificent instrument like the WoodSongs QUAD 28s.” 

Michael Johnathon 
Folksinger - SongFarmer

The bracing pattern in this guitar is completely custom.  It is very similar to the Norman Blake model which also had the 000/OM 14F body with a 12F neck.  Basically Martin took the intersection point of the X braces and pushed it back.  This moves the sound hole on the top to the correct position that will allow the extended fingerboard of the 12F neck to line up correctly with the rosette.  Essentially a modified rear-shifted pattern on a 000-OM body.  This is one of the main ingredients to the mesmerizing tone of these instruments.
