Crafted with passion and precision, the Martin Custom Shop guitars designed by Tone Shop Guitars’ custom expert Mike Doty are a testament to the art and craftsmanship of lutherie. Each guitar is a masterpiece, featuring hand-selected tone woods that not only ensure superior sound quality but also add a unique character to every instrument. The meticulous selection process guarantees that each piece of wood contributes to the rich, resonant tones that Martin guitars are renowned for.

The inlays are a work of art in themselves, with options ranging from simple elegance to intricate designs. They are carefully crafted from materials such as pearl, stone, metal, and exotic woods, adding a personal touch that reflects the guitarist’s style and story.

The specifications of these guitars are tailored to perfection. From the body shape and size to the neck profile and tuning machines, every detail is considered to create a guitar that is not just an instrument, but an extension of the musician. 

These guitars are more than just a sum of their parts—they are a conduit for musical expression, built to inspire and endure. Whether on stage or in the studio, a Martin Custom Shop guitar designed by Tone Shop Guitars is the ultimate companion for any musician seeking the pinnacle of acoustic performance.

While Martin has previously produced a slightly oversized instrument in the form of the D-45S Authentic 1936 inspired by an instrument from the C.F. Martin Museum Collection, this Super Dreadnought (The Super D) is now the largest body size in Martin’s product line. It has an internal air volume approximately twenty percent greater than the standard Dreadnought, which effectively boosts the bass output while maintaining accurate mid and treble frequencies. It also includes a new proprietary bracing pattern to maximize tone and volume. The Super D consistently tests near 12dB above the standard Dreadnought, making the volume gain all the more impactful. The Super D can achieve an extended dynamic range with more volume and with less effort than any other instrument bearing the C.F. Martin logo. The outward appearance is proportional and remains true to the legendary Dreadnought shape. Standard scale length and standard depth allow this special new design to be easily played by artists of all skill levels and across a multitude of music genres.
