martin 000-40s mark knopfler guitar
searching out mark knopfler's latest happenings - which began when i came upon his racing story i posted a couple days back - i came across this beautiful martin just released this summer. the 000-40s mark knopfler was a further request from mark to c.f. martin on the heals of the hd-40mk mark knopfler signature edition guitar, which was released in '01. this time 'round, mark wanted a guitar that followed the signatures of the hd-40mk, but was designed primarily for fingerpicking; the 000-40s is the result. based on martin's grand tradition of 12 fret guitars, it's got a 25.4" scale, 1-13/16" wide neck (nut width), a 'modified v-shape' neck, and a slotted headstock. beautiful!
