C.F Martin Guitars & Co.


It all started when Christian Frederick Martin was born in Markneukirchen, Germany in January 31 1796. Mr. Martin was born in a family that made cabinets. When he reached the age of 15 e traveled to Vienna to work with the famous guitar maker named Johann Stauffer. Later on he went to the U.S and started his ever successful career as a guitar producer/maker/designer.
The company stated in 1833 (hence the date on the logo) and until now (177 years later) his company is the finest acoustic guitar makers in the country. Without many "rivals", (just the brand Talyor) Martin guitars made his way into the hearts of every acoustic guitar player with the dream that one day they might buy it (yes it is my dream).

Acoustic Guitars History:

As soon they (the company) made their way into the world's finest acoustic guitar "award" [there was no award but if there was my vote would be for them (martin guitars)] many famous musicians stated to use their guitars and were very famous with them.
For example:

Elvis Presley:

Eric Clapton:

Ben Harper

John Mayer:


One of my many dreams is to have one of this Martin guitars. They are actually perfect (in my opinion) and if i had one i would be very happy hahahah. If i had to choose one guitar i would choose the John Mayer artist signatures but it costs about 2000 dollars therefore i am not believing i'll ever get that one hahahahah.

take a look at this video of the John Mayer signature guitar...absolutely breath taking...

It's beautiful. I actually have a Martin that I got for my high school graduation (definitely not a $2,000 one). Now I just need to bring it to Brazil and learn how to play it. :(
