All of our Martin basses are totally hand made by us here in our workshop, each instrument is treated as an individual from the moment we pick out the wood and we intend to keep it this way. We have an extensive wood collection amounting to over 200 sets of the finest bass wood imaginable! For the back and sides you can choose from, Bosnian Maple, English Sycamore, Canadian big leaf Maple, Italian Poplar, English Poplar, Cherry, Italian Walnut and Willow. For the front you can choose from Engelmann Spruce, German Silver Fir, Carpathian Spruce or Bear claw Sitka spruce. All of our wood is air dried naturally here in our specially designed wood drying sheds.
Which ever of our models you choose, there are two things that stay the same, our classic English sound with full deep rich tones and the playability of the instrument. We are happy to make all of our models 4 or 5 string as per your request.More About T&G Martin
