Martin Factory video

Post by jread »

Whoever is running the marketing over at Martin is doing a heckuva job.

Here's a new fun video of their build process.

The things that stand out to me and also when I was on the tour is that they use yellow glue on the rims and white glue under the fb, in the dovetail, and and to glue down inlays. I saw him use CA on the heel cap. And their pore fill looks like tar pitch. Also, how clean the sides and binding are! Just really nice work.
