This brand new one of a kind Martin Custom Shop guitar was built with some of the finest tonewood and appointments in mind. Featuring an adirondack top for superior headroom and Guatemalan rosewood which is well regarded for its depth and clarity, the resulting tone is a delightful one to behold.

Aesthetically, the guitar looks lovely with tasteful abalone and style-45 appointments throughout the build. The select pearl and abalone strikes a graceful contrast alongside the rich rich honey brown hues of Guatemalan rosewood. An highly intricate Torch inlay and flame maple binding completes the guitar, to give a work of art that is tonally and aesthetically fit for a king.
