Unmistakable Martin feel
For 183 years, Martin have been at the forefront of guitar innovation and premier craftsmanship. Bringing you some of the best acoustic guitars ever made, Martin's iconic tone is world-renowned, and their playability has become an important characteristic that puts their instruments in a league of their own. And with their revolutionary Plek process, Martin guitars truly maintain their undeniably majestic tone.
Precision for the ultimate feel and tone. This special Plek process involves a computer-controlled device that scans and dresses the guitar under actual playing conditions. It's strung, and tuned to pitch for precise string tension emulation. An incredible process that's been a major breakthrough over the last decade. This is because the machine's meticulous attention to detail identifies exactly what needs to be done to bring you perfect fretwork. It's an innovative process that delivers flawless results. Top that off with Martin's modified low oval profile as well as a high-performance taper, and you'll be waving goodbye to nasty hand strain, while a feel as smooth as silk ignites the true acoustic master within. Unmatched, and incredibly unmistakable. It can only be Martin...
