A fascinating look at more than 100 of the Martin Guitar Company's custom guitars, created for the world's most famous musicians, including Sting, Eric Clapton, and Elvis-along with the inside stories behind each design. From the infamous 'Elvi' guitar owned by Elvis Presley (his original D-18 missing the 's' from his name) to customized instruments belonging to Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Joan Baez, Sting, and Eric Clapton, the Martin Guitar company has made a guitar for nearly every notable musician who's ever held a six-string. Now, MARTIN GUITAR MASTERPIECES revisits more than 100 of the company's most desirable guitars, ranging from those belonging to Stephen Stills, David Crosby, Paul Simon, and Johnny Cash to guitars owned by newer artists like Beck, Babyface, and Jonny Lang. Dick Boak, head of Artist Relations and Publicity at C. F. Martin, acts as the artist liaison in these collaborations and now, for the first time, enthusiastically outlines his experiences. Readers also get a sneak preview of Martin's millionth instrument.
