  • Description

    Limited to only 100 pieces, this vintage-inspired Custom Shop CS-Bluegrass-16 showcases all the classic tone, styling and quality that has made C.F. Martin & Co. one of the most prestigious, widely recognized guitar manufacturers in the industry. With inspiration from pre-World War II Herringbone Dreadnoughts, this CS-Bluegrass-16 pays tribute to one of the most legendary dreadnought models out there... a dreadnought that was owned by two iconic Bluegrass players: Clarence White and Tony Rice.

    The Custom Shop CS-Bluegrass-16 is crafted with Guatemalan rosewood back and sides along with an Adirondack spruce top that boasts Adirondack spruce bracing. The top and braces have been aged using Martin's exclusive Vintage Tone System (VTS) to give this rich-sounding Dreadnought a well-played sonic character. Just as Martin did it back in the good ol' days, the CS-Bluegrass-16 features an authentic hide glue construction for that traditional tonal response. Catering to its old-school appeal, the CS-Bluegrass-16 sports an enlarged soundhole, a faux dalmation tortoise pickguard, Herringbone top trim, grained ivoroid bindings, open-geared tuning machines with Butterbean knobs, and a full Vintage Gloss finish with an Antique top toner. Comes complete with a hardshell case.

    Get your Martin Custom Shop CS-Bluegrass-16 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar from Sam Ash Direct today. With over nine decades of experience in the music retail business, Sam Ash is dedicated to helping every player and collector find the distinctive instrument that they've been longing for.
