This 2015 Summer NAMM Show Special features a torrefied adirondack spruce top paired with a gorgeous set of Guatemalan rosewood in a gorgeous cinnamon teardrop burst finish. This highly limited run of only 40 pieces worldwide bears an intricate alternate torch inlay on the headstock and a captivating tree-of-life inlay throughout the fingerboard, both inlaid in premium abalone pearl.
The new Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) acts much like a time machine in which Martin can target certain time periods and age the top/braces to that era. This allows Martin to reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments and exemplify them through its onboard Fishman Aura VT electronics.
This guitar was owned by a collector and is essentially brand new. This guitar bears strong resonance, rich overtones, and crisp, clear projection. Its delicately scalloped Adirondack bracing provides for a complex, vibrant dimension to the tone which will certainly delight any guitar player.
