How do you identify a Martin guitar?

I want a Martin guitar.


Answer by  Carl0993 (107)

Guitars usually have a signature rosseta (the circle design around the hole in the body)depending on the manufacturer. Do a quick internet search on Martin guitars to see what their unique rosetta is. They also have their names on the heard of the guitars near the tuning peg. Also, they have a sticker inside the body that tells the model/make.

The very earliest Martins had paper labels stamped on the back. After that a paper label was stamped inside the sound hole. Serial numbers were then written on the case and inside the sound hole until 1929 when they were clearly marked on the neck block inside the body.

The biggest idenfication is across the headstock, the word Martin will be written. It will have it's name across the headstock if it truely is a Martin.

Martin guitars can be identified by their headstock and bridge. Martin guitars have a square headstock and a unique design. Their inlays on the fretboard, the logo on the headstock, and the label inside the guitar are also identifiers.

Martins are great guitars and are worthy of being looked for. Generally, I would check the head of the guitar to find the "Martin" brand on it.

A guitar made by Martin will have the Martin logo on the front of the headstock of the guitar. It will usually be quite easy to see.

You can tell it is a Martin Guitar by looking at the model number and the serial number located inside the guitar at the neck of it.
