The Martin Custom Shop has proudly partnered with self-taught recording artist Shawn Mendes to bring you the 000JR-10E Shawn Mendes Custom Signature Edition. Mendes wanted the materials for his signature model to be sustainably sourced and for the guitar to be accessible to all his fans, even those just starting out in their musical journey. Martin answered the call and designed a model that is crafted with 100% FSC-certified tonewoods in a 000 Junior sized 14-fret acoustic, which means it is a slightly scaled-down Auditorium-style guitar, making it super comfortable for players of all sizes and skill levels. The Shawn Mendes guitar is personalized with a design element inspired by one of Mendes’ tattoos of a swallow on his hand, which Martin has etched into the bridge wings. Swallows are meaningful to Mendes because they are known to leave their home but always return, much like a touring musician. Other personalized touches include a hidden inspirational phrase inside the guitar body, like an Easter egg for his fans to find and the artist’s signature at the top of the fretboard. The guitar comes with Fishman Sonitone electronics and a striking blue gig bag made from recycled plastic water bottles that were pulled from the ocean.
