C. F. Martin & Co have been inspiring musicians all around the world for nearly two centuries. In September, a few lucky guitarguitar team members were whisked off to Nazareth, Pennsylvania to take an in depth tour of the Martin Factory and got to 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.
We spoke to the people behind the guitars to hear their stories and we were fortunate enough to sit down with the man himself Chris Martin, CEO of Martin. It was such an honour to chat to him and see another side of the guitars that we have seen so many of our idols play. We discussed the future of the company, embracing new, sustainable materials, and the iconic history behind the Martin name.
