Take It From The Top

This exquisite instrument from Martin Custom Shop comes with a beautiful Sitka spruce top, paired with distinctive sinker mahogany back and sides.

What is Sinker Mahogany?

Sinker mahogany’ has its origins in the Central American country of Belize. Roughly 300 years ago, the British felled massive, 250 - 300 year old trees which were ideal for shipbuilding. The enormous logs were floated downstream to be processed near the port, where they would be exported.

Along the way, the oldest, most dense logs would settle on the bottom of the floating mass. Some would become trapped by obstructions, while others would take on enough water to ultimately lose their buoyancy and sink to the bottom of the river.

Re-harvested sinker logs command big prices from luxury yacht and auto builders, as well as furniture makers, who covet its unique properties.

The huge-voiced Martin Custom Shop Westside Limited Edition Sinker Mahogany models are the result. They thrive on being played hard and are extremely responsive to your picking.

Special Features

The sinker mahogany neck is just exceptional to play. With a Modified Low Oval neck shape, 25.34" scale length and a 1 3/4" nut width, this Martin is supremely comfortable and smooth underhand. The Black Ebony fingerboard is an amazing match for this neck ; beautifully crafted it's a real treat to play. More to that, this Sinker Mahogany Limited Edition Custom Shop guitar has been personally signed by Chris Martin IV, CEO of Martin Guitars.
