I've always thought of my Martin Style O as being a Style " OH " but its actually a Style zero. What should I use , O or zero ? Does anyone care ? The only time I've heard anyone use zero is when someone watching me play said
" who's that zero playing the little guitar. "

It's zero, but I also say "oh". Kinda reminds me of my military days. There was an inside joke amungst us enlisted guys. If you aren't military, I'll explain a bit first. Enlisted troops were in the "E" pay grades, Officers were in the "O" pay grades,a.k.a. "Zeros". Anyway, us Enlisted troops used to joke saying you can take as many "zeros" as you can find, add them all together, and they still amount to nothing (zero).. hehhe...

It's zero, but I've only ever heard it spoken as "Oh".
