Martin_C_F_Martin_Custom_Shop_D_28_Style_D_Size_Acoustic_Guitar_Cocobolo_47_NAMM_Andy_Babiuk_s_Fab_Gear_Model_6423840AVAILABLE FOR CUSTOM ORDER - We custom ordered this custom Martin Acoustic, at the 2018 winter NAMM show this past January. Martin Custom Shop master luthier Dan Brown, had some very special Highly Figured Cocobolo wood that looked amazing! We were able to choose the finest of the lot and had a special Martin D style body acoustic ordered (Photos below of us picking the wood set #47 for this guitar at NAMM). This guitar not only looks stunning with it's beautiful slot headstock, but also sounds, and plays like no other new Martin that we’ve had in years!

When Martin’s top master luthier Dan Brown  built this guitar for us, tone was essential. An Adirondack Spruce top, with Adirondack Golden Era scalloped forward shift bracing, gives this guitar a crisp, full tone. To truly make this guitar something special, looks were also essential. We looked through every set of wood Martin had brought to The NAMM Show, and selected wood set #47, the most exotic looking Cocobolo wood they had.

Then we worked with Dan on finding some deluxe features to really add to the beauty of this guitar. We chose the following: European Flame Maple binding, 28 style Marquis rosette, and select abalone script Martin logo on a matching figured Cocobolo veneer headstock, the back of the headstock is stamped with authentic feature “C. F. Martin and Co. Nazareth PA” logo, and a set of gold Grover vintage style open back tuners. A thing of beauty that sounds and plays amazing!
