Custom Madagascar Martins

"These are the finest-sounding guitars that Martin has made in my lifetime."
--George Gruhn


Martin introduced the limited-edition CS21-11 at the winter NAMM show in January 2011, and we were so impressed with the performance of these 14-fret dreadnoughts that we ordered similar models in 0000, 12-fret dreadnought, 14-fret dreadnought and 12-fret 00 styles.

Specs include:
- Madagascar rosewood back and sides
- Adirondack spruce top and braces
- Koa bindings
- Hide glue
- Ebony bridge and fingerboard
- T-bar neck reinforcement
- Pickguard

The custom Madagascar/Adirondack 0000-21, D-21 and D-21S models are currently instock and available only from Gruhn Guitars.
