The Marquis line from Martin guitars provides players with a vintage aesthetic and great tone shaping features. The grain patterns and red color hues on the back had me in awe upon first look and then came the tone!

With an Adirondack top and forward shifted scalloped X-braces this guitar has tons of headroom and clarity to go with the full woody bass response. The beautiful set of Madagascar rosewood on this guitar added punch in the lower mid range and clarity to the overtones!
