This is my second time at Martin in just as many years. What an amazing time. And of course, both of my buddies and I all left wanting to buy a new Martin guitar! Anyway, Lots of great pictures of guitar production, tools, workers, facilities, and good times! Enjoy!

I've done the Martin tour once--summer of 2002 or 2003. I'd love to do it again.

My sister out in Bonita, CA, isn't that far from the Taylor factory. I need to do that sometime when I'm able to visit her again, too...

Nice pics. Looks like a great way to spend the day. I have a '58 D-21 that rings like a bell. Martin is an American Icon.

BTW on p.5, pics 60-63 are of two guitars being made as gifts for Russell Crowe for the opening of the new Robin Hood movie. Robin Hood related designs. Pretty cool. They decided to show these with us, as things seemed pretty quiet and slow there today.

Link to p.5:

Very cool, Brian!

My boyfriend lives in Nazareth, PA. and the first gifts he bought me were from the Martin gift shop. I'm sure I'll take the tour one of these days.
