We based this Custom Shop Martin on the discontinued Vintage series 00-28VS but changed the neck to modified low oval with 1-3/4" nut and 2-1/4" saddle spacing which translates to a more versatile and more playable acoustic for most folks. That along with Waverly tuners, premium woods throughout and a nice light construction mean this guitar looks and sounds as good as it plays.
