Introduced at Winter NAMM 2018, the reimagined Standard Series is collectively the most significant update to our flagship line of guitars in our 185-year history. From styles 28 to 45, Standard Series models have been the guitars of choice for famous players such as Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Tom Petty, Hank Williams, Joni Mitchell, Kurt Cobain, Beck, Eric Clapton, and countless others. They’ve been woven into the very fabric of our history for generations and across all genres of pop culture, and continue to inspire musicians worldwide. “I challenged my coworkers to help me with the significant task of modernizing guitars whose origin go back to the 1930s (and earlier).”, said Chris Martin. “As you might imagine, the discussions were quite animated. Fortunately, we all knew we were working toward a common goal; how can we modernize traditional Martin Guitar models while continuing to honor our rich history and heritage? Well, together we met that challenge head on and the results far exceeded my expectations.” Some key features include •Scalloped braces high performance neck with 1 3/4" nut, vintage toner, antique white binding, open gear tuners, and old style headstock logo
