The guitar world is filled with many manufacturers making great instruments. Today we are fortunate to live in a world were a certain degree of automations has brought prices down while simultaneously bringing the standards of quality up. On one end you have a mass production of various models of impeccable quality being produced by companies such as that of Taylor, and to the other end where small luthiers such a Brook Guitars are making individual, one-off instruments like no other, each tailored to the particular needs of their client. These are only two examples of the extreme ends of the scale, there are hundreds of makers out there each doing their own unique thing to meet the needs of musicians the world over.
Every company has it’s own selling points and fans, but none more so than that of Martin Guitars, and for very good reason: Heritage.
