|Jim Merrill has been a master luthier for more than 20 years. Merrill & Company guitars are renowned for their vintage tone and craftsmanship from exacting reproductions of traditional Martin designs: C18's, C28's, and OM's; to outstanding harp guitars and Jim Merrill's original designs.
Merrill Guitars are as close as we can imagine to the feel and sound of pre-war Martin Guitars. They are light, dynamic and the 'vibe' of the originals without the issues associated with old instruments. The craftsmanship and details are historically accurate. Unless you can find and afford a pre-war Martin, you should seriously consider a Merrill Guitar.
