Martin & Co
C.F. Martin & Co. are America's oldest surviving acoustic guitar manufacturer and has remained in the Martin family since it was established in 1833.
Martin can be created with creating the modern steel-string acoustic guitar as we know it today. Many of the Martin’s innovations provides the basic blueprint for countless other guitar builders. Martin’s most iconic creation, the “Dreadnought”, launched in 1916, remains the archetype for the perfect marriage of volume and a well-balanced tone in an acoustic guitar.
