Steve Miller has eclectic tastes. It shows in his music, which - in a career that has spanned more than four decades - has ranged from blues and psychedelic to pop and rock, and back.

The Martin 000C-MR Steve Miller Custom Artist Edition features a rounded cutaway with an Adirondack spruce top with Pacific bigleaf maple back and sides. Both the body and neck are a rich Burgundy red.

Why a red guitar?

"I've always been bothered by the need to have blemish-free, 'perfect' looking spruce for guitar tops," Miller commented. "It seems wasteful and I've found some of the less perfect-looking wood sounds better than perfect, fine-grained spruce. With that thought in mind I wanted to choose a color for this guitar that would mellow with age and become truly beautiful to look at and play, and that color is blood red."

A Style 45 rosette with a center ring of select abalone pearl is matched by a Style 45 wood mosaic back strip. Intricate multi-layered black/white fine line purfling encircles the top and black/white/black fine line purfling accents the sides and back: all are protected by grained ivoroid binding.

Delivered in a hardshell case, each Martin 000C-MR Steve Miller Custom Artist Edition guitar bears a special red interior label personally signed by Steve Miller and C.F Martin Director of Artist Relations Dick Boak, and numbered in sequence.

Authorized C.F. Martin dealers will begin accepting orders for the open-ended 000C-MR Steve Miller Custom Artist Edition - including for left-handed instruments, which are available at no additional cost - immediately and participating dealers will be listed on the Martin Guitar website, www.martinguitar.com.
