Martin 000-17E Electro Acoustic Guitar Whiskey Sunset in the Acoustic Guitars category
Elegant Design with Superb Sound A satin black smoke finish offset with grained ivoroid binding and pickguard show off the understated beauty of this guitar. The choice of a Sitka Spruce top delivers a bright and clear tone with a warm character. This particular tonewood is extremely vibrant providing an ideal “diaphragm” for transmission of sound on any size and style of stringed instrument. It is the primary top wood for Martin guitars due to its straight uniform grain longevity and tensile strength. Combined with Mahogany the Sitka Spruce top adds a beautiful contrast to the overall appearance of the 000-17E. Due to it’s rich heritage Mahogany backs and sides can be heard on loads of old recordings and the inherent character of the tone lends itself well to blues and roots music to this day. In addition it also provides a punchier and darker tone with a prominent ‘woody’ midrange. The rosewood fingerboard and bridge pop against the rich Whiskey Sunset satin finish and add extra detail to the overall appearance of this guitar. Fishman Matrix VT Enhance NT1 Preamp The Martin 000-17E is also equipped with Fishman’s classic Acoustic Matrix Natural preamp. This clever preamp features an ergonomic soundhole-mounted Volume and Tone rotary controls. The benefits of the Matrix VT is that there in no need for control holes to be cut into the side of your guitar and it is discreet and simple to use.

Gibson Brands, Inc. (formerly Gibson Guitar Corporation) is an American manufacturer of guitars, other musical instruments, and professional audio equipment from Kalamazoo, Michigan, and now based in Nashville, Tennessee. The company was formerly known as Gibson Guitar Corporation and renamed Gibson Brands, Inc. on June 11, 2013.34
Orville Gibson started making instruments in 1894 and founded the company in 1902 as the Gibson Mandolin-Guitar Mfg. Co. Ltd. in Kalamazoo, Michigan, to make mandolin-family instruments.1 Gibson invented archtop guitars by constructing the same type of carved, arched tops used on violins. By the 1930s, the company was also making flattop acoustic guitars, as well as one of the first commercially available hollow-body electric guitars, used and popularized by Charlie Christian. In 1944, Gibson was bought by Chicago Musical Instruments (CMI), which was acquired in 1969 by Panama-based conglomerate Ecuadorian Company Limited (ECL), that changed its name in the same year to Norlin Corporation. Gibson was owned by Norlin Corporation from 1969 to 1986. In 1986, the company was acquired by a group led by Henry Juszkiewicz and David H. Berryman. In November 2018, the company was acquired by a group of investors led by private equity firm KKR & Co. Inc. (formerly known as Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. and KKR & Co. L.P.).
Gibson sells guitars under a variety of brand names5 and builds one of the world’s best-known guitars, the Gibson Les Paul. Gibson was at the forefront of innovation in acoustic guitars, especially in the big band era of the 1930s; the Gibson Super 400 was widely imitated. In 1952, Gibson introduced its first solid-body electric guitar, the Les Paul, which became its most popular guitar to date— designed by a team led by Ted McCarty.
In addition to guitars, Gibson offers consumer electronics through its subsidiaries KRK, Cerwin Vega, and Stanton, Gibson Pro Audio line.
On May 1, 2018, the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection,6 and announced a restructuring plan to return to profitability by closing down unprofitable consumer electronics divisions such as Gibson Innovations
