Thanks to Martin, you can now walk the line between having a legendary artist’s signature model and still having some money in the bank. This incredibly made, incredibly affordable Martin model honors the late, great, Man in Black — the one and only Johnny Cash.

Created in conjunction with the Cash family, this Martin DX was made with HPL wood and finished with an all-black aesthetic, in honor of Johnny’s style. The fretboard reads “CASH” and “Johnny Cash” is written sleekly into the rosette, emblazoned like a burning ring of fire around the soundhole. Star inlays decorate the Richlite fingerboard, a material which has a similar feel and tone to ebony.

This guitar is well-made, but it’s not so delicate or expensive that you won’t want to take it everywhere, man. It boasts powerful volume and projection, thanks to it’s dreadnought body shape, and can plug in anywhere, with on-board Fishman electronics.

This is one Martin signature model you won’t be able to pass up.
