A traditional 14 fret 00 size guitar with a deeper body for fuller sound and a modified V shape neck with long scale (25.4”).

Nazareth, PA (March 20, 2012) -- C. F. Martin & Co. is introducing a very special Custom Artist Edition, the 00-DB Jeff Tweedy, designed in collaboration with Grammy Award-winning Wilco front man, Jeff Tweedy. The guitar will be unveiled at Musikmesse, which is taking place in Frankfurt this week. This special limited edition instrument will be built for 2 years only and will be available from participating Martin dealerships.

The 00-DB Jeff Tweedy Edition was inspired by one of Jeff’s many love worn Martins. It is a traditional 14 fret 00 size guitar with a deeper body for fuller sound and a modified V shape neck with long scale (25.4”). The top, back, and side of the guitar are all constructed from 100% FSC certified mahogany and it features a unique mahogany sunburst top inspired by a Martin Museum piece Tweedy has long admired. The interior label of each instrument is personally signed by Tweedy and numbered in sequence. The guitar is Martin’s first Custom Artist model that is 100% FSC Certified, an important distinction for both Tweedy and Martin.

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.
