A Visit to Martin Guitar’s North Street Factory

September 2019


The Fretboard Journal goes on location to visit the legendary Martin guitar factory in Nazareth, Pennsylvania.

In this clip, we get a tour of Martin’s original North Street factory, where all Martins from the late 1850s to 1964 were produced. If you own (or hope to) a vintage Martin, this is where it all started. We learn about the work flow of the old factory, see some unique relics from the space’s heyday and more.

Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be sharing additional videos from our Martin trip, including a peek at Martin’s mammoth Sycamore Street production facility and its museum holdings.
