Size & Shape

The bond you have with your instrument is deeply personal. If you desire a different body size or scale length to nurture your sound or improve your comfort, the Martin Custom Shop can accommodate you.

  • 0-14 Fret
    Smaller than the 00 and 000 sizes, this size was historically introduced as a “concert” instrument being larger than the parlor sized instruments of the time. This size promotes a distinctive bright, crisp tone with clear treble.

  • 000-12 Fret
    Comfortable and approachable, this body size is ideal for both relaxing & strumming or for focused finger-style performance. The soft hourglass shape promotes an intimate feel while providing a surprising depth of tone and presence.

  • 000-14 Fret
    Balanced tone across all strings with more treble than the legendary Dreadnought. Often referred to as the perfect crossover guitar. 

  • D-14 Fret Dreadnought
    Full sound and deep, rich fundamental bass tones and volume are hallmarks of the dreadnought. This is the traditional Martin sound and the benchmark of acoustic tone across generations.

  • Grand Performance 14 Fret
    Sized between a D and the 000, this modern alternative offers greater volume and deeper tonality than the 000 with more focus and balance than the iconic Dreadnought.
