Sophistication Meets Performance

About the Modern Deluxe Series

Modern Deluxe is a new take on the Martin Vintage Series. These guitars are packed with custom features and modern technology that you have to see, feel, and hear for yourself. The vintage appointments include a Sitka spruce Vintage Tone System (VTS) top, a dovetail neck joint, and natural protein glue construction, giving these guitars the rich, fully aged Martin tone that has inspired generations. With flamed maple or East Indian rosewood binding, stylish gold frets, gold open-gear tuners, and a 1930s style script logo on the headstock, the Modern Deluxe look is unlike anything in our production line to date. Some ultra-modern features include a titanium truss rod, Liquidmetal bridge pins with red dots, and a composite carbon fiber bridgeplate that boosts the volume without adding weight. We have also included a new neck shape that is slightly asymmetrical for maximum hand comfort up and down the fretboard. With these guitars, sophistication and performance come standard.






VTS TOP

The vintage appointments offered in the Modern Deluxe Series include a Sitka spruce Vintage Tone System (VTS) top and VTS Adirondack spruce braces. VTS allows Martin’s craftspeople to recreate not only the visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar, but also reproduce the refined tones of fine vintage instruments.
