C. F. Martin & Co have been inspiring musicians all around the world for nearly two centuries. In September 2019, a few lucky guitarguitar team members were whisked off to Nazareth, Pennsylvania to take an in depth tour of the Martin Factory and observe the guitar-making process from raw lumber through to the finished guitar. Dreamy, right?
It's no secret that every Martin guitar is made to an exceptional standard. We were not only blown away by the fascinating history and working of the factory, but the dedication that the team have to their craft is truly inspiring.
During our trip we spoke to the people behind the guitars to hear their stories and we were fortunate enough to sit down with Mike Zehner, Product Manager of Guitar Strings. Next year will be a mile stone for Martin Guitars as 2020 will mark 50 years of string making, so we were keen to chat to Mike about the progression and development during that time. As any player would know, once you find strings you like, you stick to them. Martin has an excellent array of string offerings, bound to suit players from beginner to advanced.
