I’ve known Bernd Martin since the mid-nineties when I lived in Granada, and he was making great guitars back then (that I couldn’t afford as a poor young guitarist/English teacher). Now he and his son Lucas are building together in the same shop and I’m really happy that we represent them here in the US. His guitars sound and feel amazing, but Bernd (or Martín, as everyone calls him in Spain) is also obsessed with beautiful wood, and makes some really gorgeous-looking guitars. We just got two more from him – a maple/spruce and a CSAR/cedar, and they’re some of the most beautiful looking guitars you can imagine. I especially like the snakewood for the fretboard and the Caucasian walnut burl head plate. Click on the image for a larger view.

The guitars aren’t up on the site yet, so if you’re interested just call David or Dave at 310.586.1100.

    Nice outside. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could get the same 360 degree interior shots of guitars that we can get of new cars? Sound samples are also common these days.

    These guitars just came in, so I’m just now trying to line someone up to come record them. Videos with good sound coming soon!

    I feel Martin is one of the best builders. Always beautiful materials, and very fine craftsmanship. I hope there will be videos available soon.
