Guitar World paid a visit to Chris Thomas at the C. F. Martin & Co booth at last week's 2012 Winter NAMM show to get a first-hand look at the new models for 2012. Among them is the beautiful, small-bodied 00-45SC John Mayer Edition; Martin is making only 25 of these guitars.
C.F. Martin announced that it will use FSC-certified recycled Sitka spruce in one of its guitars in the company’s Performing Artist series, the GPCPA4 Sapele. The wood, which will be used on the tops of the guitars, is from dismantled Canadian bridges.
