CF Martin & Company, or Martin Guitars as they are better known, were founded in 1833 and are arguably the most influential acoustic guitar brand in history. Martin produced the first “Dreadnought” body style acoustic guitars. This shape has been reproduced by countless brands, and has gone on to inspire many other shapes and styles.
With a heritage and pedigree like Martin's, you can be assured of quality, whether that be in the hundreds of years of hands-on experience they bring to guitar building, or simply the high quality of tone woods they insist upon using for their guitars. For many guitarists, Martin guitars are considered the pinnacle of acoustic instruments, and it would be hard to argue with that, with legendary singer songwriters such as Neil Young, Bob Dylan and even Kurt Cobain having wielded Martin guitars.
The current Martin lineup includes classics such as the D-28, D-18 and 000-18 guitars, right through to the Little Martin travel guitar range.
