A few weeks ago Martinez announced the release of their all new "Southern Star" series of guitars. From the initial sneak peaks we saw we learnt that these new guitars would feature solid top construction, new timber configurations and stunning finishes. Here at Muso City we've just received stock of the new Martinez guitars and are absolutely blown away, not just by the fit and finish, but by the incredible sound and playability of these instruments. Each guitar features the new Cadic pickup, a wonderfully versatile pickup system with exceptionally true tonality, plus Martinez's new vintage refined neck design. Within the "Southern Star" series there are three different timber configurations to choose from, mahogany/mahogany (6 series), spruce/figured ebony with mango wood centre strip (7 series) and koa/koa (8 series). Each timber configuration has its own charm, and there is definitely something for everyone.
We've had a couple of days to get to know these guitars better and can honestly say that Martinez have achieved something very special with the "Southern Star" series of guitars.Martinez have managed to bring enthusiast quality guitars within the reach of every guitar player, and that's something that should be celebrated. The quality of the "Southern Star" series speaks for itself and is unrivaled at this price point, but when coupled with the fact that each guitar includes a deluxe Martinez case, we can't think of a better deal on the market today.
From just $549.00 you can pick up one of these fine guitars!
