What We Think

When Martin makes an archtop, you KNOW it's going to be good. Especially when they collaborate on the design with a master archtop artist like Dale Unger. This one is very smooth when you want it be, with a nice acoustic punch when you dig in. I love this look, too. Very classy, bright, and slick. Some small dimples and light scratching.
