Remember when Mick and Dan went to the Martin factory in Pennsylvania last year and designed their own Custom Shop guitars? Dan designed a custom dreadnought and it just arrived today.

Buy it for yourself, or for Dan. Either way everybody wins!
Our customer of the day is Sally Carter. Sally is a working musician who plays regular gigs. Her old acoustic just wasn't cutting it live so she came in today to check out a few guitars. She spent a good couple of hours trying out different models both acoustically and plugged in. It wasn't long before she was loving the Coke Clarks. She settled on this very sweet Redwood/Blackwood FL2EC and now it's home at her house. Beautifully done Sally - congratulations!
This is the stunning Spruce/Maple Collings SJ. If you like a full bodied guitar with plenty of clarity and top-end sparkle, this is the model for you..!
Designed with the studio in mind, the Jeff Tweedy signature Martin is a 00 body shape but with the depth of a dreadnought. Built from 100% certified Mahogany with a shaded edge burst, it's also a stunner to look at. In stock...$4,099.
