Tone connoisseurs are always in search of the perfect guitar tone, and in the acoustic world one of the most-loved tones is that of a vintage Martin. We're talking guitar that have aged over 50 years. Martin Guitars recently perfected a unique way of torrefying the top woods and braces of their guitars to achieve the sound of an aged and broken-in Martin. The Vintage Tone System (VTS) lets Martin age the woods to a specific age/time period without the typical change in color of the wood from the torrefaction process. A special Vintage Gloss Finish is the hand applied to give the guitar the coloring of a vintage instrument. Martin's VTS series guitars not only look like vintage guitars, they also have that sought-after sound.Gorgeous figured koa tonewoods
