For well over a century and a half, The Martin Guitar Company has been continuously producing acoustic instruments that are acknowledged to be among the finest in the world. The company has been family-run for six generations and still produces exceptional instruments that are used by some of the greatest musicians of all time.

The Martin Custom Shop is dedicated to building the best-of-the-best; handmade instruments using incredible tonewoods, breathtaking appointments and bespoke, one-of-a-kind features. Each Martin Custom Shop guitar is built to order to your exact specifications, and only available through a select Martin Dealer. At Acoustic Centre, we can help you design your dream guitar with the Martin Custom Shop, and offer our knowledge, experience and advice along the way.

Exceptional Tonewoods

The Martin Custom Shop has access to some of the most sought-after tonewoods in the world; Madagascan, East Indian and Guatemalan Rosewood, highly-flamed Hawaiian Koa, striking Cocobolo and Ziricote, as well as Italian Alpine, Adirondack, Swiss, Sitka and other high-grade species of Spruce. Traditional timbers such as Mahogany and Ebony are available in their highest possible grading, and Martin offers their acclaimed Vintage Tone System for even more tonal variety.

An instrument to your exact specifications

Looking for a vintage-style 00 sized guitar with slotted headstock and herringbone trim? How about a 28-style dreadnought with a 12-fret neck and slim neck? Or a 12-string, 45-style OM with a tobacco sunburst and personalised, inlaid headstock? 

Base your design on an existing instrument specification, or start from scratch. Every detail of your new guitar can be tailored for your specific tonal tastes and playing comfort. Have your personal design made a reality by Martin's finest craftsmen.
