Under current CEO C.F. Martin IV’s leadership, the company has experienced a continuous expansion in sales and development worldwide whilst maintaining an exceptional level of high quality. One thing that makes Martin Guitars notable is their commitment to the use of innovation and development of alternative materials and sustainable woods for the future generations of guitar aficionados.
Today, Martin Guitars host regular music events and festivals known as The Martin Experience that includes a variety of offers like trainings with favorite dealers on new models and regular guesting by renowned musicians and music legends.
