    New Modern Deluxe Series Model for 2022

    Martin's smallest full-size 12-fret incorporates all the fine Modern Deluxe features - an intriguing mix of classic Martin style and modern innovation.  Vintage-style features include a Sitka spruce Vintage Tone System (torrefied) top with herringbone trim, a dovetail neck joint, and natural protein glue construction. The deluxe look features European flamed maple binding, stylish gold frets, gold open‐gear tuners, and a 1930s style script logo inlaid in pearl on the headstock. Modern features include a titanium truss rod, Liquidmetal bridge pins with red dots, and a carbon fiber bridgeplate that boosts volume without adding weight. The new neck shape is designed for maximum hand comfort up and down the fretboard.
