The dreadnought body shape that has become the standard that every guitar maker has copied was first created by the C.F. Martin Co. in 1916 for the Ditson department stores. 2016 will mark the 100th anniversary of the dreadnought guitar and you can be sure that Martin will be doing much to commemorate that event. My next trip to Martin is coming soon and again I will be selecting woods for the batch of masterpieces from the folks at the Custom Shop.
0028VS. This guitar illustrative of everything that guitarists have loved about Martin Guitars for over 180 years. If you haven’t had the joy of playing a 00 12 fret guitar with slotted headstock, you are now invited to come and try it out. List: $4,799.00 MAP: $3,649.00
