This 1999 Martin 00C-16 DB "Women In Music" is a great example of a limited edition Martin guitar. This series ran from 1997-2003, and were designed with input from Joni Mitchell, Sheryl Crow and Diane Ponzio among others to design a guitar by and for women, with a percentage of the sales going to breast cancer awareness projects. The 00C-16 DB features a solid Sitka Spruce top and solid Mahogany back and sides, with a smaller 00 body size that makes it perfect for finger style playing and scalloped X bracing for enhanced resonance and projection. This give the 00-16C DB the comfort and playability of a smaller body Martin, with a tone designed to match that of a dreadnought. The neck has a slotted headstock 14 fret design, a particularly uncommon feature on most Martin acoustics. The neck profile is low oval shape with 1 11/16" nut width, making it particularly comfortable to play. The guitar is finished off with a custom wooden inlaid rosette, only found on the "Women In Music" series.
