Martin celebrates famed American-style tattoo pioneer, and Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum’s namesake, Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins in this special edition Dreadnought guitar. It features elements of Collins’s work, titled “True Love,” inlaid with shell and hand-selected wood species on the headplate, fingerboard, and body. The artwork takes shape in a multitude of rich, earthy colors using a combination of pearl and natural wood tones. The wood tones are enhanced using a technique called sand shading. The level of artistic talent that went into creating this fine guitar is immediately evident and timeless. In addition to the custom artwork, this guitar features figured East Indian rosewood back and sides with flamed koa binding and a custom inlaid East Indian rosewood headplate. The top is heavy bearclaw spruce and features non-scalloped, forward-shifted X-bracing found in Martin’s recently reimagined standard series. This model is strung with Authentic Acoustic strings.
