Martin Custom Shop

Martin Guitars has been producing instruments since 1833 so it is no wonder that they wanted to build on their rich heritage. Their Custom Shop does exactly that. By allowing a small and dedicated team of talented luthiers to solely focus on crafting some of the finest acoustic guitars we've ever seen and heard, the results are truly phenomenal.

Having visited the Custom Shop in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, on numerous occasions and seen it all up close, we can confirm that these guitars rightly deserve their high distinction. These incredibly desirable instruments often sell very quickly, partly due to their exclusive nature but also a testament to the unparalleled levels of quality and craft.

Start the Journey

From Conceptualisation

Martin are the best known name in the acoustic guitar world and with very good reason. They have been inspiring guitarists for generations and have remained a prominent figure throughout decades of music style changes.

Their commitment and passion keep them at the forefront of the industry, being a beloved choice for any guitarist who values tone, feel, and performance. Each Custom Shop guitar is often spec'd featuring exclusive woods and individually chosen specs, resulting in a playing experience unlike any other.

A Workshop of Artistry

The Martin Custom Shop is a completely separate area from their main factory. Here, the small and dedicated team specialise in producing some of the finest acoustic instruments ever constructed.

The tooling, machining, and construction of every Custom Shop instrument starts and finishes here, with a separate library of wood for these pieces only. This is a building filled with history, creativity, and passion.

Boutique Wood Choice

Many of the guitars feature exotic woods that you won't find on other Martin series models.

This exclusive array includes such woods as the stunning quilted bubinga, elegant wild grain east Indian rosewood, and ancient sinker mahogany.

These aren't picked only for their beautiful looks but for the lush tones they produce. Some of these woods have been kept in storage for many years, waiting for the perfect moment and pairing.

Over 100 Years of Experience

Martin's Custom Shop guitars are lovingly crafted by a small team who are passionate about creating exquisite instruments.

Every stage of the process is carried out with a high level of precision and extreme attention to detail, with the majority of work carried out by hand. The final results show just how essential the skilled human touch is when producing an extremely high caliber of guitar.

With years of experience and having made guitars for many high profile artists, the Custom Shop is consistently impressing players all around the world.

The Next Step

Our relationship with Martin allows us the chance to personally visit the Custom Shop in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, giving us the opportunity to spec guitars, hand pick woods, and speak to the fine craftspeople plus sometimes Chris Martin himself. This lets us select the very best Custom Shop guitars and on some occasions the wood they are made from.

We get to see and hear them first-hand, ensuring that the ones we choose have that extra special dose of character and beauty.

Some Custom Shop models are even hand signed by Chris Martin. This is a great display of how hands-on he is and how much he values every step of the process.

To Completion

Having completed its journey, the Custom Shop guitars arrive with us for the last stage - allowing you to experience them for yourself!

Every step of the process is a real pleasure for us to see, as we love the opportunity to make sure we can provide you with an acoustic like no other.

As you've seen throughout the process, we have been there at key points along the way to witness how much love and talent goes into creating these guitars.

We have an ever changing range due to the high demand and small numbers produced, and we use our experience to ensure we have the best ones in stock for you.
