At Telluride Music Co., we are honored to be an Authorized Dealer of C.F. Martin guitars. Martin’s Sustainable Wood Series offers high-quality instruments built in accordance with Martin’s responsible guitar building practices, featuring wood originating from forests that are managed in an ecologically responsible manner. The Martin SWDGT features a 14-fret dreadnought body with a Sitka Spruce top and Cherry back and sides. While Cherry may be a relatively uncommon tone-wood, it allows the guitar to be FSC-certified sustainable, and its tone falls somewhere in between mahogany and rosewood. This guitar has a big dreadnought sound that is clear, focused and nicely balanced. It also has a warm, mahogany-esque midrange that gives it a unique tone character. As for appointments, the SWDGT features a tortoise motif that matches the mellow reddish brown of the Cherry very beautifully. This is a unique Martin guitar with an equally unique ecologically sustainable impact, and it’s an exceptional value within the Martin line. Please call (970) 728-9592 or e-mail for an in-hand description.
