Season 1 Episode 3 of Martins & More is a fun, fact-filled conversation about the acoustic guitars that set the industry standard for professional-level acoustic guitars, offered from within Martin’s venerable Standard Series. T Spoon Phillips and Maury take a deep dive into the modern Martins that represent their twenty-first century’s interpretation of such immortal classics as the folksinger’s favorite 0-18 to the ship of the line Standard D-28 to the ornate flagship D-45 with its primo tonewoods and gorgeous abalone inlays.
How do the Standard Series Martins today differ from those made before 2018? How did they evolve from their origins early in the previous century and what links remain to century before that? How does the M-38 differ from other Martins, or the J-40 for that matter? Which models are available from Maury’s Music? Enjoy learning those answers and more in this most Martin of podcasts.
