Martin has collaborated with outdoor brand Sitka Gear and country star Thomas Rhett to produce a custom HD-28 acoustic guitar, which is set to be auctioned off in aid of waterfowl research and conservation.

The guitar has been used onstage by Rhett across his full summer tour and has several unique features. The most eye-catching is the pickguard, which uses an epoxy infused with GORE-TEX material in Sitka’s Optifade camo pattern.
