Martin Two Millionth Guitar

Incredible creation here by Martin to commemorate the 2,000,000th guitar they’ve made.

Made in collaboration with RGM Watches, this is a breathtaking piece of art.

The guitar features an actual watch in its headstock, complete with display back for admiring the handcrafted movement. The guitar tuning heads are also fashioned like a watch winding crown.

Bearclaw Engelmann Spruce and Brazillian Rosewood body form the basis of the tonewoods, with plenty of luxurious appointments such as koa, flamed maple,  bloodwood, pua abalone and aluminium with guilloche engravings.

It’s a true marvel that combines the intricacy and craftsmanship of watch and guitar making. Guitarbear is astounded by such works of art.

No information on value but Martin has quite rightly stated this is not for sale.
