What we say:

At A Glance:

Understated and iconic. These are two of the many suitable epithets for this absolute classic. Martin & Co have this as one of their cornerstone guitars and have done since the 1930s. The bracing, the dovetail joint, the nut width, everything about this is what has gone on to become known as 'the acoustic guitar': it really has been that much of an influence on what came after.

The only thing normally missing is a pickup for gigging and happily this limited edition solves that with a cracking Fishman Thinline setup.

Features We Love:

 Dreadnought Body Shape

Martin's Dreadnought body creates a rich tone with plenty of depth, clarity and character. The larger body also makes it great for strumming, giving a consistent volume and even tone without impacting your dynamic range.

Modified Low Oval Neck Shape

This neck shape is suited to those with smaller hands or who prefer a slimmer neck. With this model, you'll be able to play for hours on end without hand pain getting in your way.

Martin Forward Shifted X-Brace System

Martin's X-Brace system dates back almost 200 years, designed to present the perfect balance between reliability and optimised tonal quality, in a guitar that will last a lifetime. This "forward-shifted" and scalloped design moves the X towards the neck and removes wood mass, retaining support and rigidity whilst allowing the section behind the bridge to resonate. The result is a reliable guitar that is loud and offers a spectacular bass response, pronounced tone and singing resonance.

Pros:

  • Dreadnought body shape is great for projection and volume
  • Neck profile sits comfortably in fretting hand
