For those who have always wanted a Martin guitar, but couldn't stretch to the upper end of the Martin range, now Martin have the 000RS1 - a Martin acoustic guitar with just as much heritage and craftsmanship as a more expensive Martin, but at a fraction of the price.

Don't think that the 000RS1 is anything to do with Martin skimping on their values however. The 000RS1 is made from solid sapele (the top, back & sides) and features a stratabond neck, richlite fingerboard and bone nut. Add in the Fishman Sonitone pickup system and this auditorium acoustic guitar is ready to take to the stage.

In making the 000RS1 Auditorium Acoustic-Electric, Martin guitar set out to build a solid-bodied instrument with all the sound and projection of their more expensive guitars. The 000RS1 was also designed for the working and touring guitarists looking for an instrument with a balanced tone and projection.

Solid Construction

The top, back and sides are crafted of solid sapele and braced in a way that gives you increased resonance and projection. This guitar has a comfortable, oval neck, built from multi-laminate Stratabond for extra rigidity and durability. The belly bridge and fingerboard are made from Richlite, a material similar in look and feel to ebony.

Fishman Sonitone

This 000-RS1 comes equipped with the Fishman Sonitone sound system which has controls for volume and tone. The Sonitone is a great-sounding, easy-to-use system that is perfect for stage and studio work. This pickup perfectly captures all the subtly and character of our acoustic playing.... It really is a great piece of equipment and makes sure that wherever you're playing you'll sound your best. 

Here's what Martin say about the 000RS1 Acoustic Guitar

We Welcome Part Exchange

We welcome part exchanges on items over £500. We realise that sometimes you need to “move something on” to get your new guitar. We give fair prices and once agreed we stick to them. The only thing we ask is that you accurately describe your guitar. We have plenty of happy customers from our part exchange scheme.

How it works – If you are local, you can simply call in. If you are not local we will assess your guitar and give you a valuation via phone/e-mail (we may ask for pictures). Once the price is agreed, we always stick to it, and your new guitar will be removed from the market so the deal can be concluded.

You can either send us your guitar, or we can use our courier to pick up for a small charge (UK only). Once the guitar is with us and any balance is paid we can dispatch your new guitar.
