  • Retro Martin Tone in collaboration with Fishman
  • Solid East Indian Rosewood Back and Sides

Martin's exclusive Fishman F1 Aura+ electronics system is the perfect system for the Retro models. After the careful recording of microphonic images from each donor guitar, Fishman conditions the recordings utilizing their highly evolved Aura imaging technology. This modification software applies mathematical algorithms, forcing the amplified sound to replicate the body resonance and behave tonally like the donor guitar. With this technology, an exacting studio experience is achieved every time the guitar is plugged in.

In cooperation with Fishman, Chris Martin suggested a bold idea to somehow incorporate the legendary open tonality of time-aged vintage Martin models into new instruments. The challenge was to perfectly capture the mystique and tonal emotion of priceless, pristine, and well-aged vintage Martin guitars from the company's museum collection. The result was an incredible success.

Martin Retro Series Acoustic Guitars offer the most significant advancement in acoustic sound reinforcement to date by producing the most accurate and clear amplified tone offered on a grouping of vintage-inspired superb acoustic guitars.
