Description

Marc Maingard’s guitars feel like instant classics in your hands. We’ve got a lovely 000 12-fret of his in right now that’s got all the familiarity of an old friend, but in a practically new package. Fresh out of 2017 with looks to spare and a lovely combination of African Blackwood and Italian Spruce, this Maingard is an effortless player, and the short 24.75” scale makes short work of Open G and Open D. Fingerstylists, step right up!


Gorgeously appointed in a multitude of geometric shapes, with dual arm and rib bevels for player comfort, and a Florentine Cutaway for all-board access, this Maingard 000 is a powerhouse itching to be played.

For starters this guitar is very cool. I love the shape, the bevels, the headstock that is all Marc Maingard’s own style. This guitar also has amazing shimmer and brilliance on the high-end, yet it is full and supportive in the bass. It almost plays itself and is super comfortable to hold. African Blackwood and Italian spruce combine really well for warm low midrange and a glassy high end. Just lovely.
