The Martin M-36 Acoustic Guitar is a shop favorite. Don't bother with a Custom Shop version, this guitar is perfect as is. The easiest body size to record, slimmer than a dreadnaught, and dressed with tasteful appointments like a bound fingerboard and a 3 piece Rosewood back. This is the new version of the M-36 with 1.75" Nut Width. If you want the comfort and character of Martin's 0000 "M" body style with unrivaled elegance and top-notch appointments, then this guitar is the perfect acoustic for you.
This Martin M-36 Acoustic Guitar features East Indian rosewood back and sides topped with Sitka spruce that gives you outstanding tone and projection — even with the undersized 0000 body style. The acoustic tone of solid spruce and genuine rosewood is now the stuff of legend — balanced, warm, and robust. You'll love the crisp sound of the solid East Indian rosewood back and sides. Topped with solid Sitka spruce which adds rich and mellow overtones, beautifully crisp high end, and an even midrange.
A jet black ebony fingerboard with a modified low profile oval neck shape and high-performance taper feel comfortable and instantly playable in your hands. This Martin M-36 is yet another outstanding acoustic guitar! 1.75" nut width is paired with 25.4" scale length for a taut feel and a LOUD guitar!
Martin performs a factory Plek Fret Dressing during construction and the results are a buzz-free playing experience. This revolutionary machine has been making guitars far more playable than they have ever been and that's why leading manufacturers like Martin and Gibson have been using them for years! And guess what? We have a Plek Machine of our own, on-premises! Watch a video about the Plek Machine process here or check out an in-depth Blog Post with before and after pics here!
