When in doubt, "X" marks the spot
Martin's Cowboy X"

With decoration reminiscent of the 1950s, this is a pretty cool looking guitar. Although the body is made of high pressure phenolic laminate, the "X" is an instrument with good action and playability. The artwork for this series comes from our old friend, Robert Armstrong.

If the pictures appear livid (you know, black-and-blue) that's because this instrument is black and blue. That's an unusual multi-laminate neck, too.

These cowboy decorated Martins have been an instant hit, and the limited production sold out quickly.
