Martin - LE Cowboy 2015 Ltd Edition

Strictly Ltd Edition Collectors Guitar - No. 25

This is a “New Old Stock” Collectors Item, this model was made for one year only, this piece being No.25.

William Matthews is widely known for his beautiful watercolor portrayal of the working cowboys from the great ranches of the American West. Mr. Matthews created a design for the 2015 Summer NAMM trade show. The LE-Cowboy-2015 is a 000-12 fret with a Sitka spruce top finished with Martin’s Vintage Tone System (VTS). The top is inlaid with a multi-color rope design, and the back and sides are made of goncalo alves.

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.
