The 000X Hippie Limited Edition - On The 40th Anniversary Of The Summer Of Peace & Love, A Groovy Martin With A Whole Lotta Love! [ Summer NAMM 2007 ]

United States
27 July 2007 — Ahhh, the summer of 1967. For music and hearts and hopes for world peace, it was an epochal time. From Golden Gate Park to Central Park to London’s Hyde Park, a cultural, musical and artistic revolution was in full tilt, the effects of which are still felt today.

To commemorate that extraordinary period, Martin has once again teamed up with artist Don Oriolo, owner and steward of Felix The Cat, to create an equally extraordinary Limited Edition, the Martin 000X Hippie guitar. a colorful montage of guitar top and headstock graphics including flowers, doves, peace and yin & yang symbols, hands clasped in peace and, of course, the iconic “hippie chick” with psychedelic locks.

As revolutionary as the period it celebrates, the Martin 000X Hippie features a “000” body size, built with cutting-edge Martin “X” technology. The top is crafted from high-pressure laminate (HPL), Sitka spruce braces with back and sides of HPL material. Bridge and fingerboard are crafted of black Micarta, nut and saddle are made of Corian and Tusq. The adjustable, 14-fret Strataply neck features a long 25.4” scale modified low profile, Gotoh “Cosmo Black” precision tuning machines.

Each of these limited edition guitars will be hand numbered on a special interior label and will come in a mustard yellow “Durahyde” hardshell case with orange plush interior.

Peace, brothers and sisters.

NOTE: (Don will also create a one-of-a-kind, hand-painted 000X Hippie instrument for Martin at the Summer NAMM Show in Austin, Texas.)
