Martin Limited Edition SS-GP42-15 in stock!
2015 Winter NAMM Show Special – the SS-GP42-15 – is a spectacular stage performance guitar. With Martin’s new Vintage Tone System (VTS) Adirondack spruce soundboard and highly flamed Hawaiian koa back and sides, this Grand Performance acoustic-electric offers premium Style 42 appointments, state-of-the-art onboard Fishman Aura VT electronics, Madagascar rosewood bindings, and a polished gloss lacquer finish with “toasted sunburst” top shading. Personally signed by C. F. Martin IV and numbered in sequence, no more than fifty of these special guitars will be offered.
The new Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based on the historic torrefaction system. The VTS acts much like a time machine in which Martin can target certain time periods and age the top/braces to that era. This focused method allows Martin’s craftsmen and women to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar, but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments.
