The year 2019 represents a milestone in the history of our Novojoa manufacturing plant - 30 years of operation. In that time, Martin colleagues in Mexico have produced world-class guitars and strings, and helped put affordable, high quality instruments in the hands of countless musicians. Custom artwork from Robert F. Goetzl on the DXMAE honors these employees and features elements of Mexican national symbols on a custom HPL Dreadnought. The model also includes Macassar HPL back and sides, laminated birch neck, and a Richlite fingerboard and bridge.
