Part IV
In this clip, we take a look at the X-Series and the company''s sound room, along with finishing, inlay, necks and the final assembly of the guitars.


Part I
In the first part of our Martin Museum tour, we look at some really old guitars and the company''s early history.

Part II
In this clip, Mr. Boak takes the company''s best sounding guitar out from behind the glass and plays it so we can hear what their benchmark D-45 tone sounds like. Also, the dreadnaught''s popularity is traced from singing cowboys to the Kingston Trio.

Part III
We conclude our video tour of the Martin Museum with a look at Martin signature models, the first guitar in outer space and the actual 1,000,000th guitar Martin ever made -- which happens to featuree 142 inlayed precious gem stones. Fittingly, collectors have offered Martin more than a million dollars for it.
