The features of the different series from Martin Guitars

Acoustic guitars from Martin of the Standard and Vintage Series are available in different design variants and are reflected in the model name by a number. Basically, the higher the number, the more elaborate and ornate the equipment. The Vintage series also offers historical applications taken from the design of the pre-war years. The models of the Golden Era, Authentic and Marquis series are handcrafted true to the original construction plans of the 1930s. The Authentic series is the top line of Martin Guitars, which matches the original down to the smallest details. The Marquis series uses different, less expensive woods, so that it appeals to a broader range of buyers without sacrificing quality. Limited Editions with a limited number of pieces and Custom Artists models, constructed in cooperation with the respective musician, round off the range of high-quality guitars.

The Dreadnought Guitar - the Trademark of Martin Guitars

When it comes to construction forms, the dreadnought guitar by C.F. Martin represents the basis of success. She first built Martin guitars exclusively for the Ditson company in 1916. Since the 1930s, she also sells the Martin brand. At first, many musicians do not take this large guitar body seriously. Over time, it develops into the standard for acoustic guitars thanks to its rich bass.

Martin guitars in all sizes

Similar in size are the Jumbo and the 0000 or M. All other models are smaller. The name of the model has historical reasons. The first series that C.F. Martin built were series 1-3.

The largest is the "0000", which you also know by the letter "M".
