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 Jeff Allen, Vice President of Production Management. From entry level and travel guitars to Modern Deluxe and Custom Shop, we got to chat about the progression and changes through the different series of Martin Guitars and what they have to offer to the player.
