C.F. Martin Guitar

Martin® guitars and Rolls Royce® automobiles, Steinway® pianos, Baccarat® crystal.

High–falutin comparisons, to be sure; but few acoustic musicians can hear the name “C. F. Martin” without instantly linking it to some mental image that stands for enduring quality.

Since 1833, the Martin Guitar Company has provided instruments of consistently high caliber to virtually a world–wide market. Among musicians there is a standing joke about being able to communicate in any language as long as you say, “Martin guitar.”

Almost eighty years have passed since Frank Henry Martin authored this statement of policy, but it still is an accurate expression of Martin’s ongoing commitment to quality.
