    Like-new 2015 Martin Guitars SS-GP42-15 just arrived at Bluedog! This Limited Edition (#28 of 50) 2015 Winter NAMM Show Special – the SS-GP42-15 – is a spectacular stage performance guitar. With Martin’s new Vintage Tone System (VTS), Adirondack spruce soundboard and highly flamed Hawaiian koa back and sides, this Grand Performance acoustic-electric offers premium Style 42 appointments, state-of-the-art onboard Fishman Aura VT electronics, Madagascar rosewood bindings, and a polished gloss lacquer finish with “toasted sunburst” top shading. Personally signed by C. F. Martin IV and numbered in sequence.

    The new Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based on the historic torrefaction system. The VTS acts much like a time machine in which Martin can target certain time periods and age the top/braces to that era. This focused method allows Martin’s craftsmen and women to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar, but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments.
