For those discerning guitarists that wish to explore their optimum specifications, appointments and tonal desires, the Martin Custom Shop represents the very best of what our company has to offer. Personal attention to every detain is given and the highest level of the guitarmaking craft is applied. I am always amazed at the diversity, inventiveness and taste that our customers envision when challenging us to create the instrument of their dreams. Keep dreaming and we will do our best in bringing your dreams to life.
When Designing instruments at the Martin Custom Shop, I have often stated a consistent refrain, "Evolution not Revolution". Unlike some builders who are convinced they can personally "revolutionize" the guitar every year, we believe the guitar doesn't need revolutionizing. The guitars we build today are the result of 181 years of evolutionary design. Whether answering the needs and curiosities of artists and players alike, the individuals responsible for making Martin guitars have always built upon the ideas of the artisans and craftsmen and women who came before them: improving, enhancing, perfecting.
The Martin Guitar family lives this concept bypassing the leadership torch from generation to generation, each adding their own perspective and legacy to the brand: improving, enhancing, always perfecting.
