Overview

The Custom Limited Edition CS-Bluegrass-16 is a beautiful Dreadnought that is limited to only 100 fine instruments. Classic styling, such as a herringbone top inlay with large soundhole and antique top toner, grained ivoroid binding, and ebony fingerboard and bridge are combined with an Adirondack spruce top with Vintage Tone System (VTS), Guatemalan rosewood back and sides and hide glue construction to give bluegrass players the tone and volume they desire. Other appointments include a faux tortoise pick guard, ziz-zag back purfling, solid headstock with square taper and diamond and mother-of-pearl fingerboard inlay.


Comes with a ply hardshell case.

Plek Perfection
The Custom Limited Edition CS-Bluegrass-16 was constructed using a Plek machine, a computer controlled device that scans and dresses a guitar under actual playing conditions, strung and tuned to pitch or using precise string tension simulation to ensure perfect fretwork.

Vintage Tone System (VTS)
The Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based on the historic torrefaction system. VTS acts much like a time machine in which Martin can target certain time periods and age the top/braces to that era. This focused method allows Martin’s craftsmen and craftswomen to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar, but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments.

Further, Martin Guitar’s Research and Development (R&D) team rediscovered a process used by our craftsmen and craftswomen in the early 1900s to final dress the lacquer on our instruments by hand. The end result is a warm glow appearance that is as enticing to the eye as it is to the touch. The Vintage Gloss finish leaves the guitar with a satin appearance, far from the appearance of a satin spray.
