It's no secret that C.F. Martin & Co. builds some of the best acoustic guitars anywhere. Ever since they were founded in 1833, generation after generation of the Martin family have worked hard to keep up their incredible standards for craftsmanship, quality and consistently great tone. Even so, there is one thing that can make a Martin guitar even better: collaboration with an artist who's as passionate about playing the instrument as Martin is about building it. The results of those collaborations are right here in the selection of Martin signature model acoustic guitars.
One of the first instruments to catch your eye in this lineup will probably be the Martin 000-28 Eric Clapton Signature Acoustic Guitar. The natural and sunburst finishes, East Indian rosewood back and bookmatched Sitka spruce top are definitely worth a second look, and the beauty of this guitar is more than just skin-deep: it has the stage-ready sound you would expect of any instrument bearing Eric Clapton's name. Plus, it's loaded with upscale touches like nickel-plated, open-geared tuning machines and inlaid herringbone marquetry.
Maybe you're into something a little more "alternative" than Clapton? In that case, be sure to check out the Martin OO-DB Jeff Tweedy Signature Acoustic Guitar. Jeff has worn many hats in his musical career, and his signature Martin is more than ready to handle any of them. While its versatility is as legendary as its namesake, the most impressive thing about this guitar may be that it's completely FSC-certified from top to bottom. That's just one of the many reasons to be proud of owning this instrument.
As renowned as the Martin name is, it's no surprise that guitarists who are just as famous have trusted C.F. Martin & Co. to build their signature instruments. Just knowing that it's a Martin is enough to know that you're making a great investment, but Martin signature model acoustic guitars double-down on that with the endorsement of some true musical legends. Whether you're looking to follow in famous footsteps or simply to have a beautifully-built guitar, Martin signature acoustics deliver.
