You can feel the tradition and quality in Martin's guitars. The OM-28 and D-18 are legendary examples.
CF Martin & Company, commonly known as Martin Guitar, was founded in 1833 by Christian Frederick Martin. In all those years, the brand has always remained in the hands of the Martin family, and the guitars are still produced in the USA to this day. Because of the exceptional build quality, old Martin guitars are very valuable.
Martin plays a particularly important role historically by inventing scalloped bracing, the 0-size steel string guitar with 14 frets and the Dreadnought. This makes the brand largely responsible for the acoustic guitar as we know it today. The years of experience of the company ensures that every Martin guitar is a pleasure to play.
Dijkmans Music has been in direct contact with Martin for many years. For example, our own Jan-Willem was invited to visit the factory in Nazareth, Pennsylvania for an extensive tour of the beautiful Martin factory. In addition, we regularly choose the most beautiful tops for the guitars that we receive. We also always have a large stock of beautiful specimens.
