Canadian Bridges To Be Turned Into Martin Guitars

Monday, December 19th, 2011

C.F. Martin & Co. has begun utilizing Forest Stewardship Council (FSCR)-certified recycled sitka spruce in an instrument it will unveil at the 2012 NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA.

“Martin Guitar has long been committed to research and innovation to find alternatives to rare woods,” says Chris Martin, Chairman of the Board and CEO.

The wood, which is reclaimed from dismantled Canadian bridges where it had been used in construction, will be used on the tops of the new GPCPA4 Sapele, one of the cutaway guitars in the company’s Performing Artist series.
