Joan Baez played a Martin 0-40 from 1880, which she ac­quired in a gui­tar trade in 1966 un­til she re­turned it to its owner in 1968. She re­placed this with a spectacular 20s Martin 0-45 ($250 in 1963). Good luck find­ing ei­ther of those. You stand a slightly bet­ter chance of un­earthing one of the Joan Baez 0-45s that were re­leased in 1997, but in truth any small-bod­ied gui­tar will sup­ply the de­sired crisp­ness and clar­ity.
