00 At The Music Zoo
The Music Zoo stocks a wide variety of 00 size acoustics guitars! From highly appointed models like the 00-42 to the stripped down functionality of a 00-15, we have the 00 size acoustic guitar that is just right for you.
The 00 size, or Grand Concert, is an ideal instrument for finger style playing although they do sound quite good when played with a flat pick. Offered in variety of style and woodsets, the 00 is found with a 12 or 14 fret neck joint. The 00 yields a very focused tone with great balance, making it an ideal guitar for recording and for solo performers.
The 00 body size was introduced by the Martin in the 1870s, at that time the largest guitar in the line and marketed as having "exceptional power" when compared to the parlor sized guitar typical of that era. The 00 models, like the 00-18, were only offered as 12 fret models until the 1930s when the first 00 models with a 14 fret neck joint appeared. Some notable players with signature 00 sized Martins are John Mayer, Robbie Robertson, Jeff Tweedy, & King Trio.
