Martin Martin

About the manufacturer : Born in 1796 in Markneukirchen, Germany, C.F. Martin came from a long line of cabinet makers and woodworkers. By the age of 15 he was an apprentice to Johan Stauffer, a well-known guitar maker in Vienna, Austria. After completing his training, Martin returned to his hometown and opened his own guitar-making shop.
In 1833 Martin moved to New York City. Apparently uncomfortable with the pace and style of big-city life, by 1838 he had moved his operation to Nazareth.
In the 1850's Martin developed one of its major technological innovations for the guitar, the "X bracing" system. The second innovation was the Dreadnought guitar, in 1916.
During the late 1960s,Martin manufactured hollow-body electric guitars similar to those manufactured by Gretsch. Martin's electric guitars were not popular and the company has since continued to concentrate on the manufacture of a wide range of high quality acoustics.
In 1979 Martin opened its "Custom Shop" division.
In 1990 Martin built its 500,000th guitar, and in 2004 they built their millionth guitar.
