Today I want to share with you my top 3 Martin guitars for finger style under $2,000. This is a cool category of guitar because generally we’re looking at smaller body guitars. We’re also looking at guitars that sometimes have a little bit wider nut width and maybe a little bit shorter scale length so they’re easier to play finger styles, some of those weird chord variations that we use.
My Top 3 Martin Guitars for Fingerstyle
This is a classic traditional looking guitar. It’s a 12-fret body neck joint. It’s all solid mahogany. The top, back, and sides, all solid mahogany. It yields a really cool, really lush warm tone, and it just begs to played with finger style. It’s got slotted head stock. It looks the part and it plays the part really well.
This is a brand new model from Martin. I think because it’s a 00, it’s a smaller body size and it has a sloped shoulder, it has this really barky, almost aggressive response that really works well for blues finger picking and even some alternate tuning stuff. It’s really heavy on the fundamental and it’s really easy to finger pick as well.
And last but not least, actually this is my number 1 finger style guitar from Martin for under $2,000.
This is the Swiss Army knife small body guitar from the folks at Martin. You can plug it in. It’s got a Fishman F1 analog pickup. It’s a smaller body size, Sitka spruce top, solid mahogany back and sides, super comfortable, and it has a longer scale length. You can still finger pick it, but just in case you want to throw a pick in there or maybe use finger picks and a thumb pick, it’s a great match.
