C.F. Martin & Company produces guitars for all tastes, skill levels and budgets from classic to cutting edge and humble to extravagant. Every Martin guitar is handmade by skilled craftspeople and has become the choice for hundreds of notable musicians throughout the years and across the globe such as Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Ed Sheeran, David Crosby, Dave Grohl, Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Dierkes Bentley, Jimmy Buffet and John Mayer. Even Elvis, ‘The King of Rock and Roll’ and Johhny Cash played Martin guitars.
The American company, which is headquartered in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, has been in business for almost 200 years now. It was founded by Christian Frederick Martin Sr. Way back in 1833 and has remained in his family ever since. Martin guitars are the perfect choice for all musical genres including folk, pop, rock, bluegrass, country, blues and classical. The company’s reputation is second to none when it comes to craftsmanship, quality, premium materials, commitment, tone and integrity. C.F. Martin has branched out over the years and also produces top-of-the-line guitar strings, mandolins and ukuleles. Other notable innovations include the 14-fret guitar, the Dreadnought size and X-bracing technology.
Throughout the company’s colourful history, C.F. Martin has successfully adapted to continual changes in the music industry with its innovation in design and manufacturing methods. However, one thing they’ve never changed is their commitment to top-quality products.
“Thank you The Arts Music Store for making my 50th b-day present experience a great one. Thank you for giving a care and for your amicable character and professionalism expressed to me and my wife. Can’t say enough about all o’ this. These guys are the best. Their product line-up is downright sexy and I think the fact that my wife also picked up a pink ukulele at the same time just made it even more fun than we could have hoped for. Thanks ‘The Arts Music Store’ — you rock!”
“Nothing short of great! Extremely knowledgeable staff that go out of their way to accommodate their clientele. Customers derive benefit of the staffs in depth knowledge based on their experience as working musicians. Their experience, integrity, and in-depth knowledge of the industry means that you will get decent products to suit your own personal music needs, at fair prices and excellent service after they have made the sale. If these guys don’t truly love what they do, then they are brilliant actors! Have dealt with them for over 25 years and will continue to do so!
All the best to Archy and the gang!”
“My son and I have taken up guitar this year and we have visited a few of the popular music shops in the GTA in search of the right gear to get started with. The Arts staff have consistently provided us with exceptional service and a ton of great advice without the pushy sales approach of some of the other shops.
Great service and fantastic products!”
