Martin Custom Shop Dreadnought 14-Fret East Indian Rosewood

In 2018, we commissioned the Martin Custom Shop to build a guitar for the 35th anniversary of our shop. Appropriately so, we chose a guitar based off a certain guitar model bearing the same model number as our anniversary, and then added our own personal Lightning Joe’s Guitar Heaven twist to it. With custom made gold mother-of-pearl lightning bolt inlays (what else?!) adorning the fingerboard, bridge, and headstock, this guitar projects incredible volume, balance, and clarity beyond expectations–even from a Martin Custom Shop dreadnought! We asked them to find the nicest looking set of East Indian Rosewood they had for this guitar, and they found it! We liked this guitar so much, we asked them to make two more! This is the final of only three in existence of ‘limited edition’ Lightning Joe’s Guitar Heaven 35th Anniversary Martin Custom Shop guitars, with custom interior label specifying this proud milestone in our shop’s history. Who could be better to create a celebratory guitar than the amazing craftsmen at the Martin Custom Shop!
