Martin & CO Guitars
Setting the standard in acoustic guitars
For almost 200 years Martin has been on the fore front of acoustic guitar building. Most of the acoustic guitars that we know today were created at some point in time by Martin. So it is safe to say that Martin is THE standard in acoustic guitars. The guitar against which all others are measured.
The OOO has a slightly shorter scale length making it an ideal guitar for fingerpickers or blues players. The look of the ambertone top takes your right back in time. 1933 to be precies, when this guitar was first introduced.
TWO CENTURIES OF GUITAR HISTORY
A Martin isn’t just a guitar. It’s playable history; part of a long line of legendary instruments stretching back to the company’s beginnings in 1833. Martin guitars were strummed by Civil War soldiers around campfires, helped shape the sound of modern music at the turn of the 20th century, and were played by music’s first superstars like Jimmie Rodgers and Gene Autry. Decades later, Martins floored the crowd at Woodstock, then took center stage on MTV Unplugged, and can be heard on countless classic and contemporary songs across all genres of music. Artists like Hank Williams, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Neil Young, Ed Sheeran, John Mayer, Seth Avett, and many others all played Martins, creating much of the soundtrack of the last century. And who knows? With one of Martin’s instruments in your hand, you could help write the soundtrack for the next century.
There’s a corner in Pennsylvania where timeless guitar-building techniques never go out of style. Where tradition rules and is respected. Where handmade still matters. You can only create guitars with amazing tone when artisans do honest work with care and patience without taking shortcuts. Handmade guitars are special; they have a soul all their own, and you can hear it in the music they create. Every handcrafted Martin is a stand against a mass-produced, disposable, speed-obsessed world. See, hear, and enjoy the difference.
Protecting the environment has always been important to Martin. After all, there’s nothing more critical to our future—and everyone else’s—than developing forests with long-term sustainability. That’s why Martin was one of the first guitar manufacturers to develop an ecological policy in 1990. They have embraced responsible use of traditional tonewoods and encouraged building guitars with alternative woods. They are on a mission to protect the earth while providing economic, social, and cultural opportunities for people everywhere. As a company, they are committed to recycling everything they can, wasting as little as possible, and working to minimize their impact on the planet.
