The Martin Guitar Factory is in Nazareth, PA, a mere 45 minutes away from Northeast Music Center. With it right in our backyard, we take many opportunities to visit the factory to keep up to date on their process, inventory, and upcoming releases. One specific advantage is building custom guitars such as this for the store.
On his latest trip, Jack noticed some exceptional Figured mahogany being loaded into the factory. he knew this was the tone wood he was looking for and it was claimed before it was off the pallet. Looking at it it's easy to see why, but the true magic is in the sound. These small parlor guitars have exceptional projection for their size, and can hold their own against dreadnought and jumbo shapes in a natural mix.
