Overview

Private Reserve Guitars works closely with the Martin Custom Shop in Nazareth, Pa., to obtain instruments that are especially noteworthy based on their performance characteristics and appearance.

The following descriptions are from Sound Check Sessions that allow a small group of Martin employee/players to spend quality time with fresh instruments to discuss the concepts behind the creations, and to offer commentary on sound, feel, and look.

The 00-12 Goncalo's tone is silk with an almost jazz-like note presence. This will command a large-diaphragm mic in the studio.

This instrument surpassed all expectations with a larger-than-expected presence. Good bass and especially defined mids were the immediate hallmark of the sound signature. A premium Swiss High-altitude top supported by 1/4" scalloped bracing make this a particularly responsive top. OM style spacing is chosen for this smaller body and perfect for finger-style playing.

In play, the tone is described as even and œbell like, with good projection and balance. Particularly that the instrument transferred vibration solidly through the body and to the player. Hearing the instrument is confidence enough. However, feeling it was an unanticipated pleasant surprise considering the 00-12 fret stature of this guitar.

PRG inventory changes regularly, so please contact your Guitar Advisors at 866-926-1923 for the latest availability and an in-hand description of the instruments.
