Product Description

The Martin M36 acoustic guitar is an incredible instrument for all players.
Featuring the comfortable 0000 body shape and the ultra-playable low-profile neck, there is no question that this is true Martin quality. A Solid Sitka Spruce top nestled upon solid East Indian Rosewood back and sides allows this piece to truly breathe and sing exquisitely. Beautifully installed black and white Boltaron inlaid in the neck, on the body and used as binding throughout this masterpiece, the M36 Acoustic Guitar is an absolute must have.

About Martin Guitars
For well over a century and a half, the Martin Guitar Company has been continuously producing acoustic instruments that are acknowledged to be the finest in the world.

The Martin Guitar Company has, through the years, managed to survive with each succeeding generation from C. F. Martin, Sr.'s Stauffer influenced creations of the 1830s to recent developments introduced by C. F. Martin IV. Continuous operation under family management is a feat bordering on the remarkable, reflecting six generations of dedication to the guitar maker's craft. In or out of the music industry, C. F. Martin has few rivals for sheer staying power.

Throughout its colorful history, the company has adapted successfully to continual changes in product design, distribution systems, and manufacturing methods. In spite of the many changes, C. F. Martin has never veered away from its initial commitment to quality. The concern for producing the finest instruments possible in 1833 is especially in evidence today at Martin's expanded facility in Nazareth, Pennsylvania.

Product Review

It's been a lifelong dream of mine to own a Martin guitar. I did a tremendous amount of research and everything I read pointed me in the direction of the M36. I am completely blown away by this guitar. The tone is absolutely incredible. It's balanced and focused. The guitar is so responsive to the lightest touch. It just begs to be played. As a bonus, this model became available during a scratch and dent sale. I have inspected every square inch of this guitar and can't find a scratch or dent. The fit and finish is flawless and it's set up and intonated perfectly. The only thing I could figure was that it has been played and was maybe a customer return but I can't for the life of me imagine why anyone would have returned this gem. If you want a guitar that is versatile and sounds great fingerpicked or strummed, you won't be disappointed with the M36. I can't believe there aren't more of them out there.

Best Martin I've Played

Product Review

This guitar was kind of an afterthought for me, I was ready to go with the Clapton or JM. I saw some reviews on YouTube and decided to give it a try. Wow. Wow. Wow. The instrument is extremely well balanced tonally. Very loud for such a thin-bodied guitar. I installed a Martin 24CTGM2 Thinline Gold Plus pickup and it's incredible. Very true representation of the guitar when amplified. The neck is very comfortable and easy to play. I changed out the tuners (my only gripe, I hate Grovers) with some Gotoh 21:1's and it's perfect. I've tried several strings, usually an Elixir 80/20 Nanoweb guy, but the Martin Lifespan SP's really make the guitar sing. Try this guitar, you won't regret it!!

Best Guitar I've ever played...

Product Review

I've owned Martins, Taylors, Fenders, Takamines, Blueridges and many other kinds of guitars. This is hands down the best guitar I've ever played. I had been saving up for an Eric Clapton or John Mayer model. I played both and just wasn't as pleased as I thought I'd be. I read nothing but great reviews on this guitar. So, I ordered it blindly. Right out of the box, it sounded soooo much better than the other two and had almost all of the same appointments for over a $1000 cheaper. It's got the bass of a dreadnaught and the trebles of a 000. It's the perfect all arounder, in my opinion. You'll be happy you got this guitar!
