  • About Martin Guitar: Founded over 175 years ago, in 1833 by Christian Frederick Martin, C.F. Martin & Co. has been continuously family owned and operated for six generations. The oldest surviving acoustic instrument maker in the world and largest producer of acoustic guitars in the US, Martin guitars are handmade by skilled craftsmen and women, many still using the design and techniques introduced by the company founder in the 1830s. The privately held manufacturer is highly regarded for creating some of the finest instruments and introducing innovations that have become industry standards in the music products industry, including the now-standard X-bracing, the 14-fret guitar and the “Dreadnought” size.
