Nazareth, PA, February 14, 2022 — C. F. Martin & Co. (Martin Guitar) announces two new guitars in collaboration with GRAMMY Award-winning artist, producer, and worship leader, Brooke Ligertwood, the 000-28 Brooke Ligertwood and 000-28 Brooke Ligertwood Sunburst.
Platinum recording artist, Brooke Ligertwood has seen wide-ranging global success across various genres. Brooke has a long-standing and deep personal connection with Martin guitars and Martin was thrilled to team up with Brooke to design her dream Custom Artist model.
“I wanted to create the guitar that I want to play for the rest of my life. And I was so grateful that the Martin team allowed me to be totally uncompromising in my vision. It’s really hard to explain in words just how incredible this guitar sounds. The materials and construction are uncompromising, and the sound reflects this,” adds Ligertwood.
This auditorium-style guitar is tastefully designed with a clean aesthetic and is available with and without a sunburst top. The model was inspired by a combination of Brooke’s favorite aspects of Martin’s Paul Simon and Eric Clapton Custom Artist models that are part of Brooke’s collection. Personalized features on this model include a simple wreath pattern inlay on the headstock, and Brooke’s signature inlayed on the twentieth fret. It also includes a signed paper label that is numbered in sequence.
