Martin D Homeward
All of our Martin D Homeward guitars are brand new, factory-fresh, come with a Martin hardshell case and Martin Lifetime Warranty.
Martin celebrates famed American-style tattoo pioneer, and Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum's namesake, Norman "Sailor Jerry" Collins in this special edition Dreadnought guitar. It features elements of Collins' work, titled "Homeward Bound" inlaid with shell and hand-selected wood species on the headplate, fingerboard, and body. The artwork takes shape in a multitude of rich, earthy colors using a combination of pearl and natural wood tones. The wood tones are enhanced using a technique called sand shading. The level of artistic talent that went into creating this fine guitar is immediately evident and timeless. In addition to the custom artwork, this guitar features flamed koa back and sides with quilted bubinga binding and a custom inlaid koa headplate. The top is heavy bearclaw Sitka spruce and features non-scalloped, forward-shifted X-bracing found in Martin's recently reimagined Standard Series. This model is strung with Authentic Acoustic strings.
Maury's Music thoroughly inspects every guitar before it ships (learn more). We can even set it up to your specs upon request! Simply choose between "Factory Setup" or "Custom Setup" when placing your order. Click here for more details.
Please note: Adding a guitar pickup or strap button to this model will disqualify it from our return policy and therefore it cannot be returned after these uprades are added. Upgrade prices below include installation; these fees are non-refundable. Also, we cannot ship Mammoth Ivory or Walrus Ivory products to California, Hawaii, Illinois, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oregon or Washington due to legislation in those states.
This Martin Guitar can only be shipped to a US address. Please contact Martin for a retailer in your country.
