Martin is proud to restore the M-38 acoustic guitar back into the stock lineup. Long prized in performing and recording circles, the larger 0000 or Grand Auditorium shape is combined with the thinner 000 body depth to yield notes that resound and decay quickly ” allowing for new notes ” resulting in a tonal balance and power that is less prone to stage feedback and thus highly useful in the studio. Style 38 appointments are ornate but tasteful.
