CF Martin Guitars

On Saturday, May 8th, Capitol Auction will be auctioning off a rare 1948 CF Martin D-28 guitar. Even if you don’t have an interest in guitars, you’ll want to see this one. Besides being 62 years old and made from the finest of woods (Brazilian rosewood, spruce and ebony) it has a heritage that dates back to 1833 when the Martin guitar company was founded.

CF Martin came to America from Germany during the first half of the 19th century and his descendents, in Nazareth, Pennsylvania still run this distinctive company. In fact, CF Martin IV is the current CEO.

While guitars come in many shapes and forms the iconic one that we think of; the one that Roy Rodgers, Johnny Cash, Crosby , Stills, Nash & Young and John Mayer played or plays today is a Martin.

Here’s a picture of the Martin we have for auction.

 

 

It has a very distinctive, “woody” sound that befits its age and character. Thanks for reading and I hope to see you on Saturday, May 8th. Who knows, maybe this fine guitar will go home with you!
