Martin's Custom Shop luthiers used 1/4" hand-scalloped braces, and placed them in an early 1930's pattern, using pattern #19A as a guide--after flexing and tap-tuning the very high-grade Sitka--to get the best tone and volume from this guitar. Tortoise body binding, a Genuine Mahogany 1-piece hand-carved neck with Martin's spectacular and easy-playing Modified Low Oval shape--with the Performing Artist taper, and 1 3/4" nut width all add a "tasty" character to our glorious Triple O. Even with its Short Scale length, this slightly-deeper and barely-noticeable guitar body has unbelievable bass response--not boxy, but fullsome and powerful!

Martin Custom OM, "40 Series," Madagascar Rosewood/Fine Sitka Spruce, On-Board Fishman Ellipse Blender!

Sold.....Martin Custom OM, "40 Series," Madagascar Rosewood/Adirondack-braced Fine Sitka Spruce, On-Board Fishman Ellipse Blender!

Joy and Happiness! We just finished playing this lovely Custom OM, and are still in ecstasy from the music we made with it! Choosing this beautiful set of Madagascar Rosewood, the Custom Shop suggested that the Golden Era, hand-scalloped 5/16" Adirondack bracing--with a 1/4" Tone Bar--be used as a starting point, and combine it with a 1930’s bracing pattern! Those folks in the Custom Shop really built this "baby" right!! You will no doubt recognize the “style 45” Rosette, along with the beautiful Abalone top border! A polished and beveled pick guard really fits the stunning look of this guitar.The very fast neck--a one-piece Mahogany neck--1 3/4” at the nut, is a modified low oval shape, and is joined to the body with the traditional dovetail. The script C.F. Martin logo on the headstock is made with Mother of Pearl. The tuning machines are gold, with ebony knobs; and the fingerboard Hexagon Outlines in pearl are an idea from Chris Martin himself! This motif is again inlaid on the bridge wings. You really need to hold this guitar on your lap, and let your creative powers be magically invoked, by the time-tested Martin legacy of accompanying great songs!

Martin Custom OM-28V, Deep Body, Birdseye Maple/Adirondack!

Martin Custom OM-28V, Deep Body, Birdseye Maple/Adirondack!

 Many of the original Martin guitars made in 1833 and after were crafted with very dense Maple for the backs and sides. This was due to C. F. Martin's making Maple instruments while he apprenticed under the great European guitar maker, Johan Stauffer--of Vienna, Austria. In the United States, it was very difficult to obtain extremely high-quality Maple tone wood; so C. F. Martin switched to Rosewood. We were THRILLED when Martin told us they had some of this wonderful dense, GORGEOUS Birdseye Maple! Unlike most Maple guitars in the acoustic guitar marketplace today, this Custom guitar has all the Martin characteristics we have come to love...big, bold, very robust voicings, with perfect sustain, clear articulation, and especially well-balanced tones! You can really appreciate the matching Birdseye headplate overlay on the headstock. You will delight in how easy this plays, because of its 1 3/4" Modified Low Oval neck! Add Custom, hand-scalloped 1/4" Golden Era bracing, and you have a breathtaking array of sound and playability wrapped up in this finely-crafted Orchestra Model!

Martin Artist 00-Deep Body Jeff Tweedy, all Mahogany!

Martin Artist "Jeff Tweedy" Model, 00 Deep Body, Sunburst, All-Mahogany!

(WHO is Jeff Tweedy? Do you know "Wilco," or "Uncle Tupelo?") Jeff Tweedy seems like someone you would welcome into your home; at least, it seemed so from his video! I've never met him, and only recently listened to his music; this was a definite mistake! I mean, with Woody Guthrie as one of his important influences, and recording with Billy Bragg, how can I not download the complete Mermaid collection???

This wonderful "Jeff Tweedy" all-Mahogany Martin (FSC--Forest Stewardship Council--Certified), with the Sunburst top, and built in a deep-body 00-size, has all the best requirements for extraordinary songwriting! When you hold it on your lap, it fits just right--with the Modified V neck! Why, it easily lulls you into a mesmerizing mist of musical dreams; you start writing almost before you even pick the strings! I actually started singing "Don't give your heart to a dreamer..." until Marty interrupted me and placed our Jeff Tweedy Martin in the showcase! Tonally, it is pleasing; and you seemingly can play loud or soft, and it gives you wonderfully clear, and satisfying, responses! The 1 3/4" bone nut and bone saddle help note clarity, and the visual presentation is so very warm and receptive!

Custom M/0000-28V, East Indian Rosewood/Adirondack Spruce!

Custom M/0000-28V, East Indian Rosewood/Adirondack Spruce!

This guitar fairly "exploded" right out of the case!!! When we first played it, we were astonished at the near-Dreadnought sound that soared from this Auditorium instrument! With hand-scalloped, 5/16", Golden Era, Adirondack bracing--and also with a 1/4" Tone Bar--the balance of tones combined with the voluminous sounds are almost too much to believe! This has a very attractive Fine Herringbone trim around the top, and is bordered with Grained Ivoroid binding. On the Ebony fingerboard, Martin luthiers inlaid the Long pattern diamond and squares, and carefully carved the modified Low Oval neck with the Performing Artist taper, and a 1 3/4" bone nut and saddle. The neck is also 24.9", a Martin Short Scale! It is such a comfort to play--especially with the Short Scale, and the neck feels very trim, as a result!

Martin Custom 0000 12-28VE, 12-String, East IndianRosewood, Adirondack Spruce, Fishman Matrix Infinity Pickup!

We have really looked forward to getting a 0000-12 String Custom Martin! Our friends at Martin suggested a very special Custom 12-string bracing pattern with Graduated, Scalloped Tone Bars which bring out more resonance and vibrance. In addition, the bracing also has 5/16" Adirondack cross-braces. There is a more narrow and comfortable 1 13/16" width at the bone nut, as well as Martin's 24.9" Short Scale; and the neck has the Modified Low Oval carve, making it eminently easy to chord and pick! We added the Fishman Matrix Infinity pickup, with access to volume and tone inside the soundhole, for folks who love to plug in! While Martin first built 12-string guitars in the 1960s, this guitar possesses many of the characteristics period to the 1930s! These include the long pattern diamond and squares, the fine Herringbone trim and aging toner on the top of the guitar!

SOLD.....Martin Custom Wildwood 0000/M, Wild East Indian Rosewood/Adirondack Spruce!

I literally had to pry this guitar from Marty's embracing mits, because she loved playing it so much!! Marty and I personally chose the gorgeous, rare, crazy-figured East Indian Rosewood when we visited Martin in Nazareth, PA last November! This guitar really pleases and fulfills in every way imaginable! The neck is extremely trim, with Modified Low Oval carving and the Performing Artist taper combo! The "45" Torch fingerboard inlay, and the "45" C.F. Martin block inlay in Abalone Pearl on the Wild Rosewood headstock overlay is too much wonderful, too! It has a one-piece Genuine Mahogany neck, aging toner on the top, and custom Golden Era hand-scalloped 5/16" bracing, with a 1/4" tone bar, to boot! The 0000, or M-size body is OM in body depth, for max comfort, and has the lower bout measurement of Martin's Jumbo model, for maximum sound! The Abalone pearl rosette around the sound hole, and the Gotoh Gold butterbean tuners are very nice finishing touches, too!

Martin CEO-6 Sunburst, Adirondack/East Indian Rosewood, Fishman F1 Aura+ Electronics!

SOLD......Martin CEO-6 Sunburst, Adirondack/East Indian Rosewood, Fishman F1 Aura+ Electronics!

Martin's early dreadnought guitars were "slope-shouldered" in design, with a narrow waist. This CEO-6 Sunburst model, inspired by Chris Martin, hails back to his Grandfather's day. But, instead of being joined at the 12th fret, this model is modernized to be a 14-fret guitar. The dovetail-joined neck, with a 1 3/4" bone nut, is carved in the so very slim, comfortable Performing Artist taper. The Adirondack top has 5/16" scalloped braces, which makes this a flatpicking powerhouse; and the 2 3/16" string spacing at the bone saddle brings special joy to fingerpickers! The beautiful dark Sunburst top and the Grained Ivoroid binding give this instrument an overall "vintage" flavor. This guitar is equipped with the marvelous Fishman F1 Aura+ Electronics system! It comes with a special Maroon Geib-style case, too! If you wanted an added bonus to a fine Martin that plays great, and has that wonderful Vintage look AND sound, rejoice! As an added bonus, Chris Martin signed the label inside the soundhole!!!

And, Nature's glorious-sounding--and strikingly-beautiful--Cocobolo Rosewood back is custom-sanded .065", just like Martin's Pre-war models! There's lots to love in this Custom Martin--truly "one-of-a-kind!

Martin Custom 000C-41Special, Amazon/Premium Sitka Spruce

SOLD! Martin Custom 000C-41Special, Very Rare Amazon Rosewood/Master Grade Sitka Spruce--SOLD!

How long will it take you to become enthralled and mezmerized by this 000 body size, its short scale, its cutaway? What will happen as you take it into your arms, hold it on your lap, and draw your fingers or pick across its strings? This is another spectacular example from this latest generation of our incomparable Martin artisans, whose forebears have dominated the acoustic marketplace since 1833! We haven't even gotten to the sound characteristics of the very rare and striking Amazon tonewood, on the sides and back of this Custom Shop creation! Our new guitar's Dalbergia Spruceana (Amazon Rosewood) is extremely close in characteristics to the more-famous close relative, Dalbergia Nigra (Brazilian Rosewood); and, though not yet extinct, it is extremely difficult to obtain. The Ultra Premium Sitka top, with hand-shaved, scalloped quarter inch braces, certainly live up to their promise--we were "blown away" by the intense power in tonal sounds that emanate from this magnificent soundbox! In the early 1930’s OM #6A Golden Era Pattern top bracing made former 000 Martins famous! Martin crafters combined that pattern with Martin's 21st Century genius; our Custom 41 Special certainly lives up to that reputation--and then some! We added the venerable OM-45 Style Delmar polished and beveled pick guard, and a Bone nut and saddle. This guitar measures 1 11/16” at the nut; and Martin installed that wonderfully-accurate sound reproducing Fishman Matrix Infinity pickup system. Rounding out this already-collectable and possibly future museum piece is the Abalone Pearl border around the top, the style 45 Abalone pearl Rosette, and the Style 45 Snowflake fingerboard inlay, from very Select Abalone.

Madagascar Rosewood binds the top, sides, back, and head plate. This Madagascar also appears in the center of the gorgeous Maple neck, and continues as the back strip against the Birdseye Maple. Fine Herringbone is added to the top inlay around the top, and in the rosette. A low-profile neck, finished with a 1930s heel, signals the excellent playability this Custom model provides. In the headstock, an excellently inlaid and colorful Torch is crowned by high-geared Nickel Waverly tuners with Black Ebony buttons. When we first played this Custom, we were thrilled to find the sound both bold and captivating—unbelievable for the size of this guitar—but not surprising, since the whole instrument is joined by hot hide glue!

Martin Custom HD-28V, Adirondack/East Indian Rosewood

We have taken Wildwood’s best-selling guitar, the HD-28V, and upgraded it with beautiful and upgraded East Indian Rosewood, as well as a glorious Adirondack Spruce top. We asked for the favorite Delmar Tortoise pickguard, and the old Nazareth, Pennsylvania stamp on the headstock’s back. This Custom version of Martin’s Vintage Re-issue features a 1 11/16" bone nut, bone saddle, and Adirondack Spruce top and braces—instead of Sitka Spruce. These braces are hand-formed, and placed in the "forward-shifted" Golden Era style pattern. This Adi top is then tap-toned with possibly more "shaving" of the braces, to produce maximum, forceful tone from an already spectacular-sounding instrument! The 1/4" bracing was chosen to make the stiff Adirondack top more springy; so, CAUTION! Hold on to your seat when you take a pick to this!

Martin Custom Dreadnought, 12-fret, Carpathian Spruce/East Indian Rosewood

SOLD! Martin Custom Dreadnought, 12-fret, Carpathian Spruce/East Indian Rosewood--SOLD!

This very unique guitar is One of Three made by Martin's Custom Shop luthiers, and it certainly is a winner! When we played this guitar, we were overwhelmed by its tremendous sound! And no wonder, since this was made with that time-honored Hide Glue; this was used to secure the bridge, the neck, the braces, and the top/back/sides! The slotted headstock, according to Dick Boak at Martin, increases string tension; this helps the sound a little more than the usual headstock would. And Carpathian Spruce, the top tonewood, also highly sought-after by mandolin makers, surely adds to the large volume of sound. Although the 'S' body accounts for some of the increase in sound over a 14-fret model, this Custom D is surprisingly very clear in its mids and trebles--even more than the HD28V! The neck is Martin's 'Low Profile shape, and is so very comfortable to play with the 1 3/4" nut. The shaded top is the "Ditson" stain. We Love the highly-figured Mahogany neck, and enjoy the classic Martin stamp on the back of the headstock! Hopefully you will be able to come and experience this very special Custom Shop Martin, soon! (For more info, read the spec sheet: Spec Sheet--Custom D21 Special, 12-fret joined)

We personally selected this set of highly-figured Amazon, to go with an exquisite Sitka Spruce top—you have rarely seen Sitka with such tight grain patterns and elegant silking! The 1 11/16” nut width accompanies a very trim Modified “V” shaped neck! As an added treat, we chose to have Martin install one of the last two sets of Gold Schaller tuners—made in Germany—with the engraved “M” on each button! Dramatic is not too powerful a word to use to describe this amazing Custom Martin guitar. Huge, full basses, with round, zesty mid-ranges, and clear, sparkling trebles is the best way to begin to portray how very special we think this guitar responds! Marty was overwhelmed when she fingerpicked this Dreadnought, especially since she was not using her regular picks! The rest of us played with flatpicks, and it was a full-on cannon!

Martin O-28VS, Herringbone Trim-h

SOLD! Martin O-28VS

Martin has re-issued another time-tested masterpiece. We were so happy when Martin decided to build these 12-fret-joined, 24.9" scale small beauties, but we were not sure about the Modified V neck with 1 7/8"at the nut. Since all of these necks are hand-shaped, we personally selected this guitar which definitely had the most comfortable, and the most trim-feeling neck of all the ones we played!!! On this guitar, it is VERY comfortable to move up and down the fretboard!! The short-pattern diamond and square inlays are quite helpful in quickly identifying fretboard positions! You will be amazed at the volume coming from this small-bodied guitar! Taken altogether with the hand-carved slotted headstock, the beautiful nickel Waverly tuning machines, and the artfully-carved pyramid bridge, and herringbone trim, this rediscovered Martin may well increase your lust for playing more fingerstyle guitar!

Wait until you view the East Indian Rosewood Martin used for the back and sides; it is very straight, and a really great quality.

Come to "Our House" (Wildwood Music), where you will "Find the cost of Freedom" (well, maybe not world peace, but we can tell you our low price for this collectible guitar, which will be tomorrow's vintage heirloom.)
C.F. Martin D41 Custom, Forward/Shifted Bracing, Sunburst-9

SOLD! Martin D-41, Custom

This proud beauty, with the 1935 Sunburst, is a fabulous powerhouse guitar! It possesses the hand-scalloped bracing that all D41 Martins receive, plus "forward-shifting" an inch to the soundhole! That's right! THIS D41 has forward-shifted bracing, which gives even more clarity to mids and trebles! With higher-quality tonewoods (Rosewood and Sitka Spruce) than the HD-28 Vintage model, the D41 features the very comfortable and very fast "Low Profile" neck. Combined with the Bone nut and saddle, this guitar fairly "explodes" with wonderful sound!!

Retail Price: $5608 — Wildwood's Price: $3199! SOLD!

Martin Custom DC 40 Series, Madagascar Rosewood/Premium Sitka Spruce, Fishman Ellipse Matrix Blender pickup

SOLD! Martin Custom DC 40 Series, Madagascar Rosewood/Premium Sitka Spruce, Fishman Ellipse Blender

This Custom Martin will fulfill the dreams of those Cutaway lovers, who have never found a full-body guitar of such fine quality in the standard Martin lineup! We started with a beautiful set of Madagascar Rosewood that we specially selected. In talking with our friends in Martin’s Custom Shop, we all decided to pair this with Premium Sitka Spruce for the top. Golden Era hand-scalloped bracing was chosen. It was combined with a mid 1930’s Custom pattern—crafted especially for this instrument!Notice the “style 45” Rosette, along with the Abalone top border. A polished and beveled pick guard really fits the stunning look of this guitar.The very fast neck, 1 11/16” at the nut, is a modified low oval shape, and is joined to the body with the traditional dovetail. This method has been a signature of the rich and powerful sound of a Martin guitar! The old C.F. Martin stamp is on the back of the headstock. The script C.F. Martin logo on the headstock is made with Mother of Pearl. The tuning machines are gold, with ebony knobs; and the fingerboard Hexagon Outlines in pearl are an idea from Chris Martin himself! This motif is again inlaid on the bridge wings.We cannot imagine ANY musician who would not adore the sound of this guitar!
