DO NOT HESITATE....to buy this book. It is a really great book. It takes you back, all the way to Germany and the Stauffer influence on Martin Guitar. It has all the different models and the history of changes taking place not only with the company but the effect upon the instruments they were building. Maybe I'm just crazy about acoustic guitars but now, I have a greater appreciation for this genuine American guitar company. Richard Johnston and Jim Washburn really did knock the dust off lots of cool Martin guitar memorabilia too. Inside the cover is and acknowledgement to Dick Boak as Consulting Editor, he is a Martin man through and through and wrote the text for Martin's Kit Construction book and drew the plans, I do believe. This is an authoritative book and great photos on most of it's 264 pages. Yeah, I kinda liked it, and you will too if you like acoustic guitars, especially Martins. Two thumbs up, Five Stars.

A well-written and surprisingly honest narrative about the bountiful and lean years of an American business icon of acoustic instruments. And it is not kind to certain members of the CF Martin clan(and justified in doing so), some of them who almost ran the company into the grounds of bankruptcy through neglect, mismanagement and lost direction. Fortunately others in the family held the light of promise and kept the company afloat by refocusing on what they've always done best--making flattop acoustic guitars. And to this day, the current President of the company has learned from the company's past to keep CF Martin on a successful road.

There are also stories from famous musicians, most notably Steven Stills, who has some interesting things to share about his first Martins in his career.

All in all the writing and well-done photographs make this book a worthwhile read.

Colorful, great information on the models, which is what I wanted.
I gave this book to Eric Johnson - Yes the one with his own signature Martin - for Xmas. He told me after Xmas that it is the single best book on Martin guitars he has seen and he has a quite a few books on the company and their guitars. So I don't think you are going to go wrong buying it.
