This Limited Edition model features an HMS Dreadnought printed on a Sitka spruce top with Martins Vintage Tone System (VTS). The HMS Dreadnought was the largest battleship of the British Royal Navy and serves as the inspiration behind the name and printed design on the top of the LE-HMSD-2015 dreadnought-sized guitar. Other features of this 12-fret dreadnought model include genuine mahogany back and sides, East Indian rosewood headplate and a black ebony fingerboard and bridge. This guitar is truly a unique instrument that will be cherished by guitar enthusiasts for years to come.
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 Martins 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.
