I've loved the sound of a Martin guitar as far back as I can remember. The look, the feel, the sound ... these guitars have it all! Martin & Co. earned its reputation of quality since its founding in 1833, through the traditional method of craftsmanship and the maintaining of the highest quality standards. It was this traditional pedigree as a backdrop that made me look twice at the newly introduced Martin Concept-J Cutaway acoustic guitar. The Concept-J represents a bold departure for Martin, with its multi-layered finish comprised of microscopic opalescent and metallic particles that produce a holographic surface that changes color when viewed from different angles. As beautiful in sound and touch as it is in sight, the Concept-J is a special guitar in every way.
