What We Think

Condition: Used Excellent

A really, really great sounding serial number from Martin's Grand Performance line.  Aside from some required light fret and setup work, this beauty received a completely clean bill of health from our luthier.  We've all noted the big, rich voice on this guitar--not always the case with OM w/ cutaways--nice!

Manufacturer's Description from Martin

Scalloped bracing and the perfectly balanced deep resonance of our Grand Performance body combine for blossoming arpeggios and throaty chords. Compact and versatile electronics so you can shape your sound anywhere, anytime to sound as good plugged in as you do unplugged. Authentic East Indian rosewood, Sitka spruce, bold herringbone, and vintage appointments for serious style, Martin’s most comfortable neck and a cutaway for speed and playability. Also available in Sunburst and Ambertone finish.

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.
