For the year 2018, we're introduced to the Martin M-36 acoustic guitar. Martin has always been known to provide some of the most comfortable and beautiful-sounding guitars in the world. The M-36 100% delivers nothing but distinctive sound, fine hardware, and perfect 2018 enhancements. The M-36 is definitely a guitar that's geared towards fingerstyle players and flatpickers alike. Whether you're a guitarist looking for a studio or stage guitar, this M-36 is a high-quality, professional acoustic that'll give you the rich, full sound you've been searching for.

Distinctive Sound
What makes an acoustic guitar is always going to be the wood. When it comes to woodwork on acoustics and the types of wood that are used, it creates the core of what your tone will sound like. The Martin M-36 is crafted with a Sitka spruce top and East Indian rosewood on the back and sides. You can expect a whole lot of big sound, but a very warm and full feeling from it as well. Providing a touch of brightness, the ebony fingerboard gives off a beautiful vibrant tone that resonates perfectly off of the scalloped bracing on the body. A striking 3-piece back, a bound neck, and a wide body that is also thin are all key factors to this M-36's sound and feel, making this guitar sound extremely unique.

Fine Hardware
With the utilization of the bone nut and the compensated bone saddle complementing the East Indian rosewood bridge, the Martin M-36 gives off a very fancy vibe with superb tone. The nut and saddle help provide the perfect tone and sustain, ensuring that resonation is well balanced and full. The large enclosed tuning machines are made of chrome, holding very sturdy for tuning.

2018 Enhancements
As mentioned before, the Martin M-36 uses forward shifted scalloped bracing on the body to provide a much fuller resonance and greater sonic horsepower. The modified low oval neck benefits from Martin's ergonomic High Performance taper, which will provide 100% better playability and comfort. Aging top toner, a script old style headstock logo, antique white binding, and a faux tortoise pickguard add a vintage-inspired aesthetic to this modern M-36.

Best kept secret


I had heard that nashville,session guys use this as a hybrid for fingerpicking and strumming. It does exactly that! Great mids, and solid bass



Eric should have used this one on Unplugged


This is a guitar that you connect with. It is medium sized and has the three piece back. Has a rather thick, warm sound whether playing gently or firmly - good midrange. Each note is individual. I've had many high-end acoustics and this one is very special! Does everything well but using finger picks or fingers with no picks is where it is the best guitar I know of! If you play the Clapton/Unplugged type of songs, this is the best I know of for you.
