Marc Beneteau Acoustic Guitar – 2000 Model 000-12


This happens to be a spectacular guitar. Before I get into it all, the plain truth is, I don’t want to sell it. I don’t know how else to say it. She’s that ridiculously good. 🙂

I have lowered the price to a more accessible level.  The guitar really is that sweet.  Now she has to go to a good home.

The guitar itself plays easier than I could imagine. She intonates perfecto. She sounds like a million bucks, with bells all over the place, superb separation of voice and deep mellow trebles.

The woods are incredible, with a beautiful Engelmann Spruce Top and an equal match of Cocobolo Rosewood.

The tuners are Waverly, the bridge is pyramided on its ends, with a handcrafted rosette, a K&K piezo pickup. She is simply gorgeous, perfectly appointed, workmanship thru the roof and the sound……holy acoustic guitar, Batman, the sound is pure heaven.

Heck, that’s all I have to say on the matter.

MP3 Audio200217-Marc Beneteau Acoustic Guitar 2000 Model 000-12 – this is me noodling around with the tuning, playing a bit of “The Black Oak Harp” and “Dhiana’s Playtime” both written by me a “long” time ago.  I’m just exploring the guitar and my steel string technique once again, and figured I’d put the recorder on so I could share.  I wanted it to be a raw recording and yep, I got that.   I love this guitar.  So clear and resonant.

MP3 Audio201101-Marc Beneteau Acoustic Guitar 2000 Model 000-12-black gum – a rough rendition of my new “Black Gum Jambo” – the guitar is simply great, responsive, round and full sounding.
