About the Martin 000

The Martin 000 is an extremely popular body size for fans of Martin guitars. Designed for players who wanted a louder alternative to the 00 , the Martin 000 is similar to the OM (Orchestral Model) but generally with a smaller scale length. It is otherwise known as the 'auditorium' model. Many Martin 000 have a solid Sitka Spruce top.
