At the point when he chose to get into the guitar building business, he set a high bar for himself.
I feel a commitment to ensure that all of the present
Martin guitars is in the same class as each Martin guitar that he made, and his child, and his’ child, and on down through the ages.

Guitar manufacturers through experimentation found that extraordinary tropical hardwoods work truly well on the off chance that you need to make a great sounding guitar
that is delightful and strong.
Here, we have a guitar where the body is made out of sinker mahogany.
This wood has been inundated in streams in Belize for, could be, many years.
