Pre War Style 12-fret 000 Guitar. This 12-fret slot head guitar is inspired by the early 12-fret Martin 000 style (circa 1930), and somewhat by the 00-21 guitar that was no discontinued until the 1990s. The back and sides are Amazon rosewood with a stiff Adirondack spruce top. The trim is most similar to the pre war Style 21 with ebony binding and herringbone rosette and backstrip. It differs from the post war Style 21 in that it has an ebony fretboard and bridge. The neck width is 1 13/16" at the nut, and the scale is 25.4".
