What We Think

If there was ever a guitar to speak for itself, folks.  Looks, feel, sound, condition--this one's got it all.  A minor setup for staggeringly good playability and a buff/polish were all the luthier needed to do to get this stunning instrument humming on all cylinders.  Excellent condition with a capital "E."  We can't decide on the more apt comparison: church bells or grand piano?  Either way, a lot more comfortable in the lap (and the wallet!).  A taut, muscular bass, focused mids, and glowing highs.  The natural harmonics that come out of this thing are astounding--enough to make the toughest 'grasser shed a tear!

About Manufacturer

For well over a century and a half, The Martin Guitar Company has been continuously producing acoustic instruments that are acknowledged to be the finest in the world. The Martin Guitar Company has, through the years, managed to survive with each succeeding generation from C. F. Martin, Sr.?s Stauffer influenced creations of the 1830s to recent developments introduced by C. F. Martin IV. Continuous operation under family management is a feat bordering on the remarkable, reflecting six generations of dedication to the guitarmaker?s craft. In or out of the music industry, C. F. Martin has few rivals for sheer staying power. Throughout its colorful history, the company has adapted successfully to continual changes in product design, distribution systems, and manufacturing methods. In spite of the many changes, C. F. Martin has never veered away from its initial commitment to quality. The concern for producing the finest instruments possible in 1833 is especially evident today at Martin?s expanded facility in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. The story behind one of America?s most famous guitars began on January 31, 1796, in Markneukirchen, Germany, with the birth of Christian Frederick Martin, Sr. Born into a long line of cabinet makers, Christian Frederick took up the family craft at the early age of 15, when he left his hometown and traveled to Vienna to apprentice with Johann Stauffer, a renowned guitar maker.
