CR Guitars - hand selected


Mario Guitars

Mario Martin guitars are here!

"One of my most long-standing nerdy guitar obsessions has been to give myself a guitar related challenge. I come up with a definitive guitar goal - a mission - and then set out to achieve it. I know in my heart that most guitar fanatics do this when searching for the guitar, amp or pedal that will bring us a sense of joy. I'm bringing this up because for some time I have been searching for a builder who can craft a Strat style guitar that combines two very important qualities - on the one hand it blows me away, and on the other hand it is gently priced.

"Using my treasured '56 Strat as my measure, I set out on my quest, trying guitar after guitar. In most cases I came up short. On the recommendation of monster guitarist Matt Henderson, I reached out to Mario Martin. His mission (if he chose to accept it) was build a Strat for CR Guitars, with my tweaks, that I could take on a gig and not have me wishing I had brought my '56. To my great delight, Mario nailed it!

"We now are proudly carrying Mario Martin Guitars with CR requested customizations so HAVE A LOOK!" - Craig Snyder
