Martin Guitar To Introduce Reimagined Standard Series Guitars At 2018 Winter NAMM


New York, NY (Top40 Charts / C.F. Martin & Co.) C.F. Martin & Co. (Martin Guitar) will introduce their reimagined Standard Series guitars at Winter NAMM in Anaheim, California. Collectively, this will be the most significant update to the company's flagship line of guitars in its 185-year history.

The guitars in Martin's reimagined Standard Series, from styles 28 to 45, have been the guitars of choice for famous players such as Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Tom Petty, Hank Williams, Joni Mitchell, Kurt Cobain, Beck, Eric Clapton, and countless others. They've been woven into the very fabric of our history for generations and across all genres of pop culture, and continue to inspire musicians worldwide.

"I challenged my coworkers to help me with the significant task of modernizing guitars whose origins go back to the 1930s (and earlier)," said Chris Martin. "As you might imagine, the discussions were quite animated. Fortunately, we all knew we were working toward a common goal: How can we modernize traditional Martin Guitar models while continuing to honor our rich history and heritage? Well, together we met that challenge head-on, and the results far exceeded my expectations."

"Changing this many models that are so iconic to the company and music industry all at once was a real challenge," says Fred Greene, Martin's Senior Director of Product Management. "But our team did an incredible job in choosing appointments and improvements that make these instruments even better."

The most notable updates to the line include the addition of a modern high performance neck that is thinner and more comfortable for the player, and vintage appointments, including aging toner and open-gear tuners. There have been changes to internal features as well that include scalloped and forward-shifted top bracing, depending on the style. The bottom line? When you put all of the changes together, the result is a Martin Standard Series line that looks, plays, and sounds better than ever before.
