The Martin Custom Shop designed this elegant limited-edition model which was inspired by the photography of Wilson A. Bentley - known as the "Ansel Adams" of snowflakes. Bentley is acknowledged as the first person to successfully photograph a single snow crystal in 1885 with a technique known as photomicrography. He was also the first man to state that "no two snowflakes are alike." Martin has been granted exclusive rights to use Bentley’s snowflake images for the creation of unique inlay packages. The package for this first edition includes snowflake inlay on the headplate, fingerboard, heel, pickguard, and bridge. The model also features Madagascar rosewood back and sides paired with a Sitka spruce top, so you can be sure this guitar will sound as amazing as it looks.
