ello everyone, the legendary guitar company, C.F. Martin & Co. is the world's premier manufacturer of fine, acoustic guitars. I've owned several, and played dozens of them. These are my articles about the ones that I know the best.
The D 45 is the top of the line for Martin acoustic guitars, the base model starts at $7,500.00 but the sky is the limit. I've personally played on that was priced to sell at $45,000.00
Less expensive, but never cheaper than other solid wood Martin acoustic guitars; the Mahogany D 18 supplies a velocity of sound that the more expensive Rosewood guitars can't match.
Though some claim that the Gibson J 200 is the world's best known acoustic guitar, those people all work for Gibson! :=D
This little all mahogany guitar is no longer in production, but still a steal on the market!
This is an "S" series guitar, and that means that it's got a wider neck, twelve frets clear of the body, instead of fourteen; and a slotted headstock, like a classical guitar.
The man in black was all original, sometimes dark, and always powerful. His signature Martin D 35 Johnny Cash signature series guitar is just like that. It's a timeless instrument of exceedingly high value and quality. Three peice rosewood back, rosewood sides, and Engleman Spruce soundboard - this guitar is a cannon with the authority of the voice of Johnny Cash, and of course, it's all black.
The HD 28 VR is the most copied acoustic guitar in the entire world - what it is is a Herringbone Dreadnought 28 Vintage Reissue, a replica of pre world war II D 28 guitars using Sitka Spruce and East Indian Rosewood.
This guitar, the Martin 000 28EC is the Martin Eric Clapton guitar, the same guitar that Eric Clapton used to record his live Unplugged album.
These two guitars are beyond belief with exquisiteness of beauty that is simply hard to believe until you actually see one. Take a deep breath - they start out at $50,000.00 dollars!!!
But hey, there's a VERY good reason for that price tag, and if that's not enough guitar and abalone inlay for you - just go right ahead with your bad self and buy the D 100, for a mere $110 thousand dollars.
A "conscious" guitar, made in keeping with ecological responsibility, the Martin SWDGT features a solid Sitka spruce top, certified solid cherry wood back and sides, mahogany neck, and a certified katalox bridge and fingerboard. The neck has a low profile shape and an adjustable truss rod. Appointments include pearl dot inlays and a natural satin finish for enhanced tone. Made with specifically ecologically sustainable woods.
The Martin M series are guitars that are traditional Martin flat tops with a different body shape that provides different tonal properties for the player.
Five high end beauties reviewed and compared here, none of them made by Martin. Each and every one, however, is a recreation of Martin's famous D 28 as it were before World War Two.
The Martin D-42JC is an extremely rare guitar, and the "JC," of course, stands for "Johnny Cash." Interestingly enough, this guitar has a three piece back just like the Martin D-35JC.
Johnny Cash surely played hundreds of guitars in his days, but there was one specific guitar that he'd take nowhere near a stage, it was his prized instrument, a 1971 D-28
With stiff competition from all corners of the globe, Martin has upped the ante with the D-16, a guitar that provides more value for the cost than perhaps any other.
Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin was famous for both acoustic and electric guitar music, and he always played a D-28 on stage and in the studio as soon as he got one.

Martin Guitars are heirloom quality investments, and studio and professional grade instruments. You can't outgrow them, and they sound and play better the more that you play them.
