The all-sapele Auditorium body of the 000-10E produces big, varied tone with emphasis on the bass but a strong treble response as well. First introduced in the early 1920s, Auditorium-body acoustics earned a reputation among players as outstanding fingerpicking guitars, and the 000-10E carries that tradition forward beautifully. Whether you play bluegrass, Delta-style blues, or modern country, you will find the 000-10E to be an ideal fingerpicking guitar that also opens up when flatpicked. Big, first-position chords sound amazing on this gorgeous acoustic.
The onboard Fishman MX-T electronics in the 000-10E not only produce outstanding amplified acoustic tone, but they also provide convenience via the soundhole-mounted tuner. This cleverly placed tuner faces upward and features an auto-mute function, so you can tune in silence onstage with a perfect line-of-sight view of your tuning status for each string — a feature guitarists here at Sweetwater really appreciate.
The 000-10E is part of Martin’s Road Series, built for portability as well as sound. The top, back, and sides are braced for maximum resonance and projection, the 000-10E’s smooth-playing Performing Artist high-performance taper neck is built with select hardwood for extra rigidity and durability, and the Richlite fingerboard is similar to ebony — smooth, responsive, and comfortable. The bridge is also made of Richlite for great tone support.
