Our customer of the day is Michael Cox (r). It's not every day you buy your first ever guitar AND meet the guy who made it! Sitting next to Michael is Patrick Godin of Godin Guitars - the company that makes the beautiful Seagull acoustics. Patrick is in town visiting us from Canada and he was more than happy to talk shop with Michael about his new guitar. Congrats and thank you Michael...enjoy the new venture!
Introducing the brand new Martin DR Centennial. Released to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the dreadnought, the DR Centennial is one hell of a limited edition guitar.
The first thing you'll notice is the natural satin finish—a rarity for a Martin as highly spec'd as this one. Those specs include an Adirondack Spruce top with VTS, Indian Rosewood back and sides, Mahogany neck, Rosewood fretboard and forward-shifted 'scalloped X' bracing. Antique white binding and open geared butterbean tuners set this model off beautifully.
This guitar is an absolute cannon. It is extremely limited and there will only be a handful coming in to the country. Why not see out the 100th year of the dreadnought in style?! $3,249.
Santa just dropped in when nobody was looking and left us with a dozen new Martins. There's a couple of very cool new models in here too. All will be revealed!!
Another year gone...another Acoustic Centre/Bass Centre Christmas party. They may get tamer each year as we age but the quality of food and drink only gets better. Huge thanks to Guy and Mick for not only wining & dining us in style last night, but for being such bloody cool blokes to work for year round. Until next year!
