Welcome to the Custom Shop
The Custom Shop exists for you, a simple statement but one that we don't take lightly. You are not a demographic; you are not a piece of the marketplace to be acquired. If you play music, you are a musician, an artist,
and we believe the world is a better place because of you. Our sole purpose for being is to serve you, the artist.
The relationship between musicians and their instruments has always been a unique bond. Many of C. F. Martin's most innovative and truly revolutionary designs have been the results of collaborations with musicians. Every time we carve a spruce brace, shape a mahogany neck or create a piece of custom pearl, we do it with you, the artist, in mind. A musician's need to play music is not a choice. It is a necessary part of their lives. It is the musician's desire to share their particular gift of interpreting everyday elements and experiences into lyrics and melody that move and inspire others. At the C. F. Martin Custom Shop, we share the same passion. With your vision in hand, our artists cut, sand, carve and craft the finest materials into an instrument, a working muse of everyday inspiration. A functional work of art that acts as the prism through which you can view, shape and inspire the world around you.
This is who we are.
This is what we do.
