See the tiny white specks of sap in this beautiful piece of Indian Rosewood? Because of these specks, this piece of timber didn't pass Martin's ruthless quality control tests. Martin offer a lifetime warranty on every single guitar sold in America. If this timber was used in a guitar it might be fine forever or it could just crack one day. Either way, Martin don't take the risk. This will now be sold as a second to an independent luthier or hobbyist somewhere. Nothing is wasted!

Our customer of the day is Amalia Foy. You may have just seen Amalia come fourth on X-Factor this year. She's already mastered the piano and violin, now it's time for the guitar. She came in today looking for something that was great value, had a warm tone but still had clarity. We tried plenty of different guitars but it was this lovely African Mahogany Cole Clark Angel that won out. Big congrats Amalia and thank you so much. All the best!
