OVERVIEW

A tribute to the first-ever X-braced guitar

Martin celebrates the very first Size 1 model and the earliest X-braced guitar ever documented.

Martin has a longstanding claim as the inventor of X-bracing, which is a primary innovation in the evolution of the modern American guitar. The story of X-bracing began in 1843 when C. F. Martin made a special X-braced guitar for Madame Delores N. de Goñi after entertaining her in his home. Madame de Goñi was probably the finest professional guitar soloist of her time. Her performances were widely popular throughout the Americas between 1841 and 1892. She pronounced Martin guitars to be "superior to any instruments of the kind [she had] ever seen in this country or Europe for tone, workmanship, and facility of execution!"  This replica of that revolutionary guitar is true to the original right down to the torn paper label.
