Michael Johnathon model 0000-28s by the Martin Guitar Company of Nazareth, Pa
It is a finger picking canon … a custom designed, rare 12 fret 0000 with slot head Waverly tuners. The body is larger than a 000, the bass tones are huge and golden, the trebles are ringing and silver. It features herringbone trim, Sitka Spruce top and East Indian Rosewood sides and bottom, the WoodSongs logo is inlayed on the 9th fret. The inside label will be signed by Michael Johnathon and Chris Martin.
NOTE: This is a serious, pro-level instrument. It is a songwriting tool for performers and writers … and priced like it. The WoodSongs QUAD 28s not cheap but ding-dang worth it.
Thoughts about the guitar from Michael:
“I am primarily a finger-style guitarist and play 12-fret slot head Martin guitars exclusively. Always have. Here’s why: on a normal guitar when you strum a G chord you hear the wash of the chord tones. On the wider neck 12-fret Martin when you strum the same chord your hear the bell-like tones of the notes making up the chord. The clarity can be breath taking. It was those silver and golden bell-like tones merged with power and volume I was hoping for when thinking about the WoodSongs QUAD 28s.
The 0000 body size is part of the guitars power. Bigger than the 000 and slightly smaller than a dreadnought it gives the best of both worlds. On the larger guitars like a D-35, the instrument sounds awesome in the room but every sound man on the planet has to EQ the low end down when you stand onstage. That alters the sound of the instrument dramatically, no matter what. The 000 size sounds perfect but the smaller body size makes you look like Gigantor. Thus slightly larger 0000-28s of the WoodSongs QUAD. The bass strings have crisp power and the high strings have the silvery bell tones of a beautiful instrument.
And the WoodSongs QUAD has natural volume and a long, clean sustain. It’s a finger picking cannon, a pro instrument for a serious artist and song writer. Take a visit to Willcutt Guitar Shoppe, sit yourself down in a quiet room and play one for yourself. This is truly the finest guitar I’ve ever heard and worth the effort. A guitar like this is an investment in yourself and your music.
Nothing can make a good song and a good artist sound better than a magnificent instrument like the WoodSongs QUAD 28s.”
