What we say:
At A Glance:

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.
Sitka Spruce with VTS
The Vintage Tone System from Martin uses a unique recipe that has been based on historic torrefaction systems. VTS is much like a time machine in that Martin craftsmen and craftswomen are able to target specific visual aesthetics and possibly more importantly, reproduce specific tones from revered vintage models and apply them to new ones.
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" design moves the X towards the neck, 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.
- Dreadnought body shape is great for projection and volume
- Vintage Tone System allows Martin to achieve specific tones and looks from Martin's history
- Forward shifted X-Brace projects great tone
