Martin Guitars

The Martin Guitar Company has been continuously producing acoustic instruments for over a century and a half. Martin Guitars are acknowledged to be the finest in the world. The company has adapted successfully to continual changes in product design, distribution systems, and manufacturing methods. In spite of the many changes, Martin Guitar Company has never veered away from its initial commitment to quality.

Since 1833, the Martin Guitar Company has provided instruments of consistently high caliber to virtually a world-wide market. Among musicians there is a standing joke about being able to communicate in any language as long as you say, "Martin guitar". The "hand crafting" image that is part of the aura goes along with Martin's limited production.

Among the great variety of instruments the Martin Company makes, the line of Dreadnoughts or D-size guitars are the most popular models, the Dreadnought Guitar is currently regarded as the standard acoustic guitar.
