Martinez has always been inspired by the classic builds and names. This guitar is inspired by the early Panormo and Stauffer models. The small scale and the schellack top, make this a very special instrument that sounds surprisingly loud. It is intimate, but because of the focussed sound, it will hold it’s own in a small ensemble. Not just a beautiful picture, also a sweet sound.
The small scale length of 560 mm offers fantastic playability, even to those not accustomed to this small scale length.
The top is finished in schellack (french polished) offering the best sonic and visual results. The schellack is somewhat more fragile than modern pu finishes, but it offers superior results.
Included is a classic, luxurious form-fit case.
