MC Adirondack 1
The MC Adirondack 1 is a Grand Auditorium cutaway (“0000” shape with “000” depth) designed for versatility of playing style and exceptional tonal responsiveness. Crafted with solid Spanish cedar for the neck, sides and back, this guitar is extremely light in weight, and accordingly it yields tremendous clarity, complexity and power. The soundboard is bookmatched from prized
Adirondack red spruce, trimmed with fine herringbone and inlaid with a single ring abalone rosette. The modified low oval neck (1 3/4” width at the nut) features Martin’s new two-way adjustable rod. Ebony is selected for the fingerboard, headplate and bridge. The body is lacquered to a polished gloss and offered without a pickguard.
M-36 Grand Auditorium
Originally introduced in 1978, Martin is proud to restore the M-36 back into the stock model lineup. Like the recently reintroduced M-38 (its two-piece back counterpart), the M-36 with its three-piece rosewood back has long been prized in performing and recording circles. M models combine the larger “0000” shape with a thinner “000” body depth to yield notes that resonate, then dissipate — allowing for new notes without excessive overtones — resulting in a tonal balance that is less prone to feedback and thus highly useful on stage and in the studio.
