The world-renowned Martin Custom Shop offers this stunning 24.9” scale CS-00041-15 Edition for 2015. The back and sides of brilliant orange and black grained solid cocobolo are combined with an Adirondack spruce top with Martin’s new Vintage Tone System (VTS), delicately scalloped with high performance ¼” top bracing for an unparalleled complex and vibrant tone. Premium inlay techniques are employed for the cocobolo headplate and back. The body is bound with Hawaiian flamed koa wood trim and enhanced with Style 41 abalone inlay around the top and rosette. Specially designed concave ribbon inlays in select abalone, mother-of-pearl and genuine mahogany grace the black ebony fingerboard. Limited to 75.

The new Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based on the historic torrefaction system. The VTS acts much like a time machine in which Martin can target certain time periods and age the top/braces to that era. This focused method allows Martin’s craftsmen and women to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar, but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments.
