Abstract:

Part of a two book set, this book provides information on guitar bodies, necks, headstocks, bridges, woods, as well as other chapters covering Models by Style, the Custom Shop and limited editions. All the lesser known instruments like archtops, electrics, mandolins and ukuleles are included as well, all very collectible. The book ends with exhaustive appendices covering production numbers, retail prices, and instrument specifications. Since Martin guitars are the world's most collectible acoustic guitar line, this book will undoubtedly be the most sought after reference book by any collector or owner of a Martin. If you own a Martin, you own a piece of history and this book will help you discover when it was made and how. This authorized book will finally answer any questions on the stories behind some of the rarest instruments.--Publisher's description.
