Season 1 Episode 23 of Martins & More features our friend Tim Teel, Head of Instrument Design for C. F. Martin & Co., in this casual yet engrossing chat with Maury and Spoon. A senior executive who was promoted within over the years from an entry level position, Tim has been responsible for many of the most evocative and well-received Martin models in modern times. His vast experience is informed by his love of wood and by exquisite examples of industrial design and engineering from many sources outside the guitar world.
What was Tim’s first job at Martin Guitar? Is it true that he is not the first person in his family to work there? What is his preferred ride when he joins Martin colleagues for a weekend brunch in another state? Find out the answers and much more in this delightful conversation.
