Overview

The Custom 000-MMV Auditorium Acoustic Guitar is a smaller version of the famous Custom MMV Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar. Like its sibling, the Custom 000-MMV features all-solid wood construction. It is made exactly like its big brother, using a solid sitka spruce top, solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, and the nitrocellulose lacquer finish.

The only departure is the body size. The Custom 000-MMV comes in an auditorium body shape, with a tighter waist and lower bout, and a narrower body. Sonically, the guitar has a very balanced sound that will react perfectly to the fingers or guitar pick. Notes are extremely even across the entire acoustic spectrum. What is more, the Martin Simple Dovetail neck joint adds a tremendous amount of sustain to the tone; making it the ideal guitar to be heard accompanying your voice, playing with a band, at a coffee house, or in the track of your favorite recording. The Custom 000-MMV Auditorium Acoustic Guitar is a perfect addition to any guitar collection.

The Custom 000-MMV Auditorium Acoustic Guitar comes complete with a 330 hardshell case. 

History of the Custom MMV Model
The MMV is a Martin custom Dreadnought guitar that was created in 2005. Simply put, MMV is Roman Numerals for the number 2005, the year in which the guitar was created. From its conception, the Custom MMV Dreadnought Acoustic was designed to be a Nazareth-made, all-solid wood instrument, that was priced significantly under what you could find off of the Martin standard pricelist. Martin wanted to offer the musician a chance to purchase a solid wood Martin guitar at a price that wouldn’t break the bank. They also wanted to come up with a sound that was slightly different from the more traditional Martin dreadnought guitars.

To begin with, they selected a nice piece of Sitka spruce as the tone engine for the guitar. Sitka was chosen because of its ability to capture the player’s performance by accurately reproducing all the color and nuances in every note. The top was braced with one of Martin’s patented X-Bracing patterns. The company departed, slightly, from Martin’s standard “X” pattern to “roll off” just the right amount of bass. The bass on the Custom MMV is perfectly blended to match the volume on the mids and treble frequencies, giving you an instrument that is both balanced and expressive.

To add the right amount of color, they fashioned the back and sides from solid East Indian Rosewood. Using East Indian rosewood warmed up the sound of the top, much like that of a speaker cabinet. The combination of a Sitka spruce top and East Indian back and sides produces a guitar that is rich in color, yet extremely dynamic and expressive.

The neck joint of the guitar uses Martin’s Simple Dovetail. This is a glued neck-to-body joint that allows the guitar body and neck to resonate as one instrument. Much like the world’s finest string instruments, such as the Stradivarius and German double bases, you won’t find any bolts in this instrument. Its tight, wood-to-wood contact produces an incredible amount of sustain and tone.

Playability
The Custom MMV comes with a very playable low-oval mahogany neck, and a 1-11/16” nut. Before the guitar leaves the factory in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, each instrument goes through the Plek machine for a computerized setup. The Plek machine gives you the perfect setup for the geometry of each instrument. If you were to have a technician do it for you, you could spend anywhere from $250-$450. A computerized Plek setup is included in the price of every guitar.

The guitar’s body comes beautifully finished in nitrocellulose lacquer which was selected because this thin, multi-layered lacquer finish allows the wood to age and resonate naturally, allowing your guitar to breath.

Good, but not in a league with the Standard Series

By JAMES

from Steelers Nation

Comments about Martin Custom 000-MMV Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

Setting aside the hyperbole of the other reviewers, this is a nice 16 Series level 000-sized guitar, but not without its limitations. It's basically a 000-16RGT but with straight (non-scalloped) bracing, and that's largely why it falls short of such hyperbolic accolades. In a nutshell, I found the tone to be tight (due to the long "OM" scale length) and thin (due to being over braced). I'll explain why, but I should note that I played this model a home for a month before returning it to get a 000-18E Retro. I had also considered the 000-28EC, but couldn't adapt to the Mod V neck. I love the 000-18E and its ?high performance? neck. I find the tone of mahogany to be "unvarnished" by chaotic competing overtones. Its ?present? fundamentals make tone what I like to call ?honest? and ?trustworthy.? Anyway, getting back to the 000-MMV. First, it?s more an ?OM? (orchestra model) than a ?000? (triple aught) in the sense that it has the longer 25.4? scale length. So while it project well, it lacks the complexity of a Standard Series 000, leaving it sounding a bit too tight for my taste. Second, it has straight (non-scalloped) bracing which I find to be an odd spec for an OM/000 body size. The smaller body already adds stiffness to the top to begin with, so straight bracing undermines the primary purpose of the OM/000 body?good focus and clarity under a lighter hand. I understand it?s a cost savings spec. And I understand that a longer scale may require a stiffer bracing, but contemporary Martins aren't as structurally delicate as genuine pre-War models?particularly the lightly braced Addy top dreads with forward placement of the 20?s. So I find models like this to be overbuilt. I prefer the 000 to any other body size. It is focused, articulate, and clear. Not to mention very comfortable. And properly built, it does more than any other size while still exhibiting tonal character. In my experience, the best build combination is a 000 with short scale neck (for a fuller note), an Addy top (for greater projection and dynamic range than Sitka; the resonance fill out when its ?played-in?), and ?? scalloped bracing for greater responsiveness and a more open tone. (Heck, even the 000-16RGT had scalloped bracing.) Whatever tonewood is chosen for the back/sides will benefit from these specs. Now what I've just described doesn't exist in Martin?s Standard Series. You?d have to hunt down a discontinued Authentic, Marquis, or Signature Edition; or go through the Martin Custom Shop. If neither of those options are in your budget, Eastman makes two excellent models with these specs: the E20-OM (Addy/Rosewood) and the E10-OM (Addy/Mahogany). I've got the E20-OM. It has powerful low end and commanding trebles. It may not have the unmistakable Martin tone I?m addicted to, but it?s close, and it has the dynamic range and fullness resonance that the 000-MMV lacks, and with just as much projection. To be honest, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Martin makes a Retro Series version of the 000-28. I?m sure they can get their hands on a ?45 (or something) 000-28 to do the imaging. If so, I?ll be able to pass the Eastman along to my nephew, allowing me to keep it in the family.

Great deal!

Comments about Martin Custom 000-MMV Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

This is a fabulous guitar! It's got terrific playability and a wonderful, rich sound, with clear highs and lows. I've always been partial to smaller guitars and the 000-size is very comfortable. This guitar should cost much more. Plaudits to GC and Martin for making this marvel available.

Comments about Martin Custom 000-MMV Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

I am not what you would consider a great guitar player. However, I have been playing for many years and know what sounds good. This model that is equivalent to a (000), plays and sounds incredible similar to a Colling's or a Goodall but about 1/3 the cost. I am sure that the folks in Austin, Texas would argue with me but I challenge anyone to try one of these guitars.

Very nice, very impressed

By David Scheall

from Seattle WA

Comments about Martin Custom 000-MMV Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

I got mine directly at a store(So. Center) and understand from the salesman(jay) that this model is available only at guitar center and are in limited supply. This is my new best friend. I can't understand why there is not more hoopla about this guitar. A 000 body size. Solid east indian rosewood back and sides. mahogany neck. ebony finger board and bridge(not even my PA1 has ebony). Solid spruce top. The projection of this guitar has to be heard. I have a GPCPA1 rosewood and this sounds as good, maybe better depending o the timbre of your ear. I play woth a friend who has a big money Collings 000 and this sounds every bit as good, plus it plays like a Martin and it didn't cost big money. This may be funny, but the guitar smells awesome of rosewood and lacquer. Made in the USA. I am so glad I got one. Plays, sounds, looks excellent. Stage worthy. A spectacular deal compared to other Martin offerings with ebony fret boards and rosewood back / side woods.

Incredible value... a true sleeper!

By Craig

from Dallas Texas

Comments about Martin Custom 000-MMV Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

I was on the hunt for a 000-28EC, and played a 000MMV at a GC near my house. I was in a position to afford the Clapton, but the hunt stopped when I played the 000MMV. At less than half the price of a Clapton, it had everything I wanted in a writer's/occasional player's guitar. I installed a Fishman Ellipse Blend, and for me... it is perfect! I may replace the nut and saddle someday, but I have zero complaints about this guitar. I have subsequently played three Claptons, and mine is still the clear winner!

best kept secret but play it first

By KATHY

Comments about Martin Custom 000-MMV Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

I am a beginning guitarist with small hands. This guitar fit me like a glove. The guy in the Guitar Center handed it to me and said "this is the one you want" and it was. Fast neck, easy for me to chord. Great sound. I like that it has projection but not any BOOM. I only say play it first because I think some people will want a more dreadnought sound and feel. This is more refined-feeling than that.

      Comments about Martin Custom 000-MMV Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

      Let start by saying I've always been a "Gibson Guy" and my only real comparisons were my 1994 Gibson Gospel and the Martin D28. I know the legendary history behind the D28 but frankly never found one that played close to my Gospel. Took my son and his friend to GC to buy the friend a new acoustic and I gravitated to the Gibson Hummingbird Pro and the Robert Johnson L1. Neither one wowed me and for grins I picked up the 000mmv and was blown away. It erased any negative impressions I ever had about Martin guitars. That lead me to pick up the Clapton 000-28 and while I loved the aged top and super fine craftsmanship the MMV sounded and played (IMO) much better. I'm now the proud owner of my first Martin in a group of Gibsons. Maybe she'll make friends with my Gretsch 6120. Great guitar at a great price.

      Comments about Martin Custom 000-MMV Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

      I went in my local GC to only buy strings one day, and brought this home! Excellent small body for the money (or ANY money)! I can't exactly afford the 000-28, but get one of these and you'll have no regrets. For some reason, Martin manufactured some of these with an ebony fretboard and bridge, and some are made with Richlite. I got lucky I guess and mine has the ebony. Not sure how much difference it would really make other than just the feel. Mine also came with a Plek setup, and the playability, fit and finish are superb. After having this for 2 weeks, I had my local luthier upgrade it with a bone nut and saddle and it is absolutely STELLAR now. I don't understand at all why this model is still flying "under the radar" as it is, but if you are considering a small body Martin, you owe it to yourself to seek this model out and try it.

      Martin's Best Kept Secret

      By Richard

      from Martin CT

      Comments about Martin Custom 000-MMV Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

      I stumbled upon a used one by chance as I was working my way through the high-end room. Played a few riffs and was totally gob-smacked. The tone rivals my HD-28 while the build quality is high-end Martin. The top Gibsons and Taylors couldn't hold a candle to this beauty. Serious. I thought I was playing an 000-28EC. Nope. And the price. Without a doubt, Martin's best kept secret. Killer guitar. I've heard the same about the dread versions.

          Just bought this Martin MMV Dreadnought from GC and they treated me right. It is my first guitar in 30 years and my first Martin ever. Described as "Used - excellent condition". and yes, it is beautiful and appears to have been very well cared for by it's previous owner. I asked that it have new strings put on it and there were, before it shipped to me (Chicago to California). Surprisingly great sound given it's fair price; rich, clear tones and lots of sparkle to the higher notes. Lovely solid tone woods as well.

              Comments about Martin Custom 000-MMV Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

              Like many other reviewers for this guitar, I started looking for a version of the Martin 000-28. I went into the acoustic room at one of the Guitar Centers in Kansas City, and saw the 000MMV hanging on the wall. I looked at the description of the guitar, and actually had to get one of the GC associates to confirm that the guitar was all hardwood, which he did. I played it briefly at the time, and went back about a week later to purchase the guitar. Overall, I do not think I have seen a solid hardwood guitar with the East Indian Rosewood back/sides at this price. This is my first Martin guitar, and I have only played it for a couple of days (getting the LR Baggs Lyric installed right now), but I could not be more pleased with the guitar.

                I am by no means a great guitar player. But I know a guality sound when I hear it and this Martin 000mmv does not disappoint. It is rich sounding with terrific tones as Martins costing three times as much. I've read that it's built with lower cost bracing and no dove tail joint. If that makes a difference in the sound you wouldn't know it.
                It sounds GREAT. Beautifully made rosewood body and Sitka top and mine has the ebony fingerboard and bridge. If you are considering a 000 body size guitar give this GC hidden a secret a try. You will not be disappointed .

                visited local gc messing around w/acoustics and picked this up - wow, beautiful sound, construction etc... the MMV sounded and played nicer than much more expensive guitars. I left and thought about it & it really was a no brainer - went back the next day and played again and no I wasn't hallucinating, it just sounded beautiful. Don't know what it is about the MMV, but this is Martins best kept secret. Looking at it you see an entry level all wood Martin, but start playing and it really fills the room. I have a couple of friends who are accomplished musicians who cannot put this down. This guitar is a great for the all around player - perfect for me as I enjoy different types of music, handles them all well. Feel sorry for my other acoustics as they will not be seeing much playing time.

                    I love the 000MMV so much! I've had it for about 4 years now and it just gets better and better. It's so comfortable to play with the 1' 11/16 nut and slim neck, and the body size is comfortable to hold, yet sounds really rich and balanced. It smells really good too if you're one of those people who likes that as I do. Haha. The fact that it's 100% solid wood blows my mind for the price and the smaller touches like the white binding and white endcap make it look really classy with the rosewood. My uncle has the Eric Clapton model and this sounds so much more "alive" and responsive than his does. Just for fun I went to the Martin custom stop website and built this guitar, matching the specs., and it says it would retail for $5,777.00 Not bad! I really do love this guitar. I was just playing it and I thought, it needs a glowing review from me. :)

                        I traded a Larivee OM-9 on this. It sounded amazing but had 2" nut which was hard to play. This guitar sounds amazing, easy to play, love it!!

                          WOW! This is an amazing guitar for such a low price. As a female player with small hands, I'm so impressed with the ease of play, incredibly warm tone and booming sound. The neck and smaller body are very comfortable for long practice sessions since I'm still learning to play. My Taylor 810 dreadnought isn't as comfortable due to its larger body size. The Martin also sounds better than my Taylor 614 Grand Auditorium and I haven't figured out if maybe Elixir strings on 614 could be the tonal difference. However now I'm thinking of buying a d-28 or d-35. Thank you Martin Guitar Co!
