Overview

With Martin' new Vintage Tone System (VTS) certified European spruce soundboard and highly flamed Hawaiian koa back and sides, this Grand Performance acoustic-electric offers premium Style 42 appointments, state-of-the-art onboard Fishman Aura VT electronics, Madagascar rosewood bindings, and a polished gloss lacquer finish with œtoasted sunburst top shading.

Other appointments include Style 45 Golden Era back purfling with 18 Style black fiber on each side, black/maple/black fiber body inlay, Continuous Tree of Life pearl fingerboard inlay, a two-ring rosette, and modified pyramid bridge."X" scalloped bracing, hide glue construction, and dovetail neck joint for a guitar built to last. Personally signed by C. F. Martin IV and numbered in sequence, no more than fifty of these special guitars will be offered.

The new Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based on the historic torrefaction system. The 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' craftsmen and women to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar, but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments. Includes 593 Gelb Style hardshell case.
