In true countdown fashion, I’ll be ranking 11 of my favorite Martin Guitars. There are hundreds of guitars, lines, and years to choose from. Which one will take my number one spot?
Martin Guitars has been in the business longer than most American companies. With immigrant roots, Martin Guitars revolutionized the guitar multiple times in the 1900s. From dreadnought builds to X bracing, they’ve made some incredible strides.
Today, they’re one of the most recognizable acoustic guitar brands. They’re prized for their value, playability, and collectability. So, given all this, how could I possibly pick my favorite martin — let alone, narrow it down to just 11?
Obvious price is a huge concern. I could sit here and pick out museum quality, six-figure guitars. But I won’t. Instead, I’m picking guitars that might be attainable for you. That’s right. We’re not just daydreaming here. This could be how you find your favorite Martin!
Overall, I wanted these 11 guitars to represent the wealth of offerings that Martin Guitar has. If there was a guitar that struck a chord with you, let me know in the comments! I’d love to see what you liked about it and whether you went through with seeking it out!
