Martin 000-15S 12-Fret Slothead, Year 2000 SOLD

Postby hayesdt » Sun Nov 20, 2011 6:41 pm

FOR SALE: a year 2000 Martin 000-15S, 12-Fret Slothead, Solid Mahogany, 1 and ¾” nut width, 25.4” scale, serial number 754942.
I purchased this guitar from FQMS in Fall, 2000, and had them install a bone saddle. I currently own several other acoustic guitars and have not played this one often. Over the years, I did have my local music store install a piezo (passive) transducer under the soundboard with an endpin jack and replaced the original bridge pins with “red-eye” bridge pins. Additionally, I used the procedure described on the Unofficial Martin Guitar Forum to give just the body (nothing to the neck or headstock) of the guitar a semi-gloss finish (spent a lot of time on this), and it turned out very well. The setup/action is currently low, as I prefer it that way for fingerstyle playing (I’m not a flatpicker at all). The guitar has one small flaw (see picture in link below) on the back lower edge (where binding would normally be and which I normally keep covered / disguised with just a small bit of brown shoe polish) and a very small nudge on the top, about 1” below the bridge. Other than that, it is in exceptional shape. Comes with the original hardshell case that fits snug because of the installed endpin jack.
I’ve included a couple of photos here, and for complete pictures, see the site at http://dthmartin00015s.shutterfly.com/pictures/12 .
$850 plus shipping (I’ll pay for the insurance). Paypal or Cashier’s Check. Or would consider buyer’s trade of an Eastman VL105 / Morgan Monroe MVF400 / H. Luger CV500 / Scott Cao STV-500 or comparable Fiddle plus (negotiable, depending on instrument) cash.
