Not many of today's luthiers can boast a history as long as C.F. Martin, and it's not by accident they've lasted this long it's just the result of building instruments that keep on setting the standard for acoustic guitars, decade after decade. When they showed off the new Martin 17 Series at NAMM 2016, they proved they're still on top of their game, and this guitar family really plays to their strengths by taking some of the best work from their past and putting a modern spin on it. These instruments are based on Martin's vintage 17 models, with down to earth styling that puts a modest face on their exceptional tone and playability.
For one of the most versatile guitars around, look no further than the Martin 17 Series D 17M Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar. Topped by solid sitka spruce and backed by mahogany, it's got all the standard traits of the 17 Series as a whole. And by applying those to the dreadnought body style, it musters up a voice that's powerful and rich, with tons of projection. From the light touch of a fingerstyle guitarist to the forceful attack of a rocker, nothing is off limits for this Martin.
Of course, impressive as it is, the dreadnought isn't for everybody. If you're more of a grand concert or auditorium aficionado, you'll want to direct your attention to the Martin 17 Series 00L 17 Acoustic Guitar and the Martin 17 Series 000 17 Acoustic Guitar. These two instruments are trimmed in Guatemalan rosewood, and each one features Martin's Performing Artist neck taper, which translates to a supremely comfortable playing feel.
No matter which Martin 17 Series guitar appeals to you the most, it's safe to say you'll love the way it feels and sounds that's usually how it goes with a Martin, after all. Just choose the model that's right for your personal playing style and get ready to set a whole new standard for yourself, be it on the stage, in the studio or even around the campfire. These guitars are ready to go everywhere you are; all it takes is a little initiative.
