I happened upon this great presentation by the Metropolitan Museum of Art on the history of CF Martin, starting with his arrival in New York in 1833. CF Martin's story is really the story of the beginning and evolution of what has become known as the modern American guitar.

Thank you Christian !

Much effort and research was put into discovering the historic details of this story.

Fascinating. Enjoy !

The exhibit is pretty cool too, if you have a chance to get to NYC to see it.
