Thread Name: Tech: Zero Frets
Subject: RE: Tech: Zero Frets
Martin Carthy's signature model (made by Martin) does indeed have a zero fret. Mr Carthy believes it makes the guitar more playable, more responsive, and if anyone should know, he should.

I only ever used to see zero frets on 12 string guitars - I think it probably helps the intonation, especially on the open chords.
