Martin Guitar in Nazareth PA
Artisans working to ensure their craft, inlays etc., yet the sound of pure Martin is amazing! Please visit the tour and appreciate one of the true great American experiences!!!!!

Yep, I asked the same question. The entire industry is at fault. Just another gubbie shakedown!
I have a Martin C 3. Nice guitar!
Thanks for the video. I watchedthe first. It is interesting and I will watch the rest later.
I have a late 90s 000C-1E I has a Fishman pre amp, a cutaway.
It’s just a little smaller than a full size dreadnought, I guess they call it an auditorium model.
It has a cut away. I’m a finger picking fool who plays all over that neck.
It has nice low action with no buzzing frets.
It is a really nice player.
I’m pretty good at it, if I do say myself.
Yeah, I said it, but, you can SAY anything on the internets.
Do you know this guy? Doyle Dykes.
Oh yeah, sure you just had to humble my ass down didn’t ya! Ha!
Here he is just goofin off.
Alternative tuning and sounding half pedal steel, just epic stuff.
Ahhhh. Love me a nice D-28!
Most impressive tour. I took the tour in the early 90’s with my brother. I lost track of how many Martins I’ve owned in my younger days.
My 12 String is a Martin,
My Les Paul is a Gibson.
Wonderful Video, Thanks! :-)
Here I am messing around on my 1974 Martin D-12-35
He is one of the greats but no one was smoother than Chet. I actually like Doyle better than any of the top players for raw talent. Richard Smith is a phenomenal talent. Thom Bresh is a great entertainer especially when he impersonates everyone.
I am deaf in one ear and don't hear very well with the other but I can still enjoy these guys. Merle Travis saved Chet from being another Les Paul wannabe.
guess it depends on what party you donate to
The Artisan aspect of Martin is amazing, however, the wood smell on the tour is everything.
Please make it a mission to go and see how your guitar was made. Amazing place!!!!
I inherited a Martin D something or other from my father. He got it maybe in 1940. I never liked it because fretting wore my fingers out. Gibson with flat-wounds was my preference. I gave the Martin to my son, who took it to a luthier who cut down into the string notches to lower the strings. Plays much better.
I’d like to visit the factory, but I’m sure all those guys that made the carved-top archtops are long gone.
