Our next stop is the original Martin factory in Nazareth. This is where Martin spent their first 120 years or so, eventually outgrowing the place and moving nearby in the mid 1950's. Today they use this facility to prepare the Martin 'seconds' and they sell these parts to luthiers and kit guitar builders around the world (without the Martin brand stamped on them, of course). They are currently refurbishing the building to make it more of a destination for history buffs. The history in this place is incredible. All the original guitars that are now referred to as 'Golden Era' or 'Authentic' came from this building. In other words it was here that Martin stamped their name as the best guitar makers in the world. Mind blowing!

Our customers of the day are James Hands and his son, Alex. This is a big moment in the Hands family - both the boys have just got themselves their dream guitars. James went with an Aussie classic - the beautiful Maton EA80C. Alex went with an American classic - the legendary Martin HD-28. That's a lot of tone for one household. Thank you so much boys...congratulations!
