The guitar pictured is the actual guitar you will receive!
At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.
This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your guitar was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without care.
This Martin Custom Shop Vanilla Cream Pearl Concept is a one-of-a-kind guitar made for the Winter NAMM show. There was only one made and The Farm got it! This is quite a special guitar - one that's sure to be a collector's piece.
This Grand Performance 14-Fret body features an Adirondack Spruce top, supported with 5/16" Adirondack Spruce scalloped bracing, and solid Genuine Mahogany back and sides.
The satin finished Modified Low Oval Mahogany neck offers a nice blend of modern playability and exceptional player comfort. The black Ebony fretboard is topped with a bone nut and boasts Old Style 18 dot Mother-of-Pearl inlays.
Catering to the classic Martin vibe, the old school square taper headstock features a vanilla cream pearl headplate that displays a gold old style Martin logo and a set of Grover aged gold open gear tuning machines. The 16" radius compensated bone saddle is housed within a black Ebony belly style bridge.
The Antique White satin finish is the real star of this guitar, and the antique white binding and vanilla cream pearl pickguard, complimenting the headplate, finish off the stunning look.
This Custom Shop Shop Vanilla Cream Pearl Concept acoustic electric guitar will come to you with a deluxe Martin hardshell case, the NAMM display tag and is equipped with an LR Baggs iBeam active pickup.
We are including some photos we took at the NAMM show during the Martin lottery drawing that took place when we got the chance to acquire this unique instrument. One of the photos shows the Martin master builder that built this guitar. We spoke to him for a bit about this build, and his passion about this Concept guitar, and the hours it took into getting this impressive finish just right, was infectious!
We are calling this excellent condition since it was on display at the NAMM show, however it has never been owned. It was also kept in an area of the Martin booth that the general public could not just go up and handle it.
