Special aging process makes it look and feel broken in for an out-of-the-box, ready-to-go playing experience.
With this guitar, C.F. Martin & Co. celebrates 50 years of guitar manufacturing at their Sycamore Street location. This unique dreadnought 14-fret guitar has solid sycamore back and sides married with a torrefied Sitka spruce top. Torrefaction accelerates the natural aging process, which in turn gives the guitar the appearance and warmth of an aged guitar. The modified low oval profile neck with a Performing Artist taper is also made of solid sycamore. Production of this guitar will be limited to 50. Includes hardshell case.
