**This instrument has sold**This past winter NAMM show we had the unique opportunity to choose from a limited selection of stunning Guatemalan Rosewood which Martin has been collecting to build some very special instruments from. We commisioned three one of a kind guitars: a Dreadnaught, a 000, and an OM. The results are nothing short of astounding!
This 14 fret Dreadnaught is a tone monster! The Adirondack Spruce top features Martin's own Vintage Tone System to give you the the sound of a warm vintage guitar from generations gone by. The gorgeous Guatemalan Rosewood back and sides feature long swooping wide grain patterns and a powerful low end. The 1 3/4" nut width provides ample space on the fretboard and the Performing Artist neck profile sets todays standard in comfort and playability. This dreadnaught is a one of a kind piece and is not to be missed!
Martin's new Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based off the historic torrefaction system. The VTS system acts much like a time machine in which craftsmen can target any decade and age the top and braces to the specific era. This focused method allows the team to re-create not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of an old guitar, but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments.
