Music City Pickers is proud to be a Mario Guitars authorized dealer. Brand new. Factory relic'd. Comes with a Mario Martin gig bag and Certificate of Authenticity.
Mario went to work at the Gibson Guitar factory in Nashville, followed by a five-year stint working for Fender guitars, where he was taken under wing by master luthier Evan Ellis.
“My five years [with Fender], that was where I got the bulk of my education,” Martin says. “I was able to be in a custom shop, to see and do the many steps of guitar building…so that was my schooling, really."
Mario Martin started Guitar Mill in 2005, and it has since been a top shelf supplier of premium guitar bodies, necks and finishes for some of the best known names in the guitar industry. The Guitar Mill Custom Shop was formed in 2009, as a response to a growing number of requests for fully built custom guitars. The Guitar Mill Custom Shop guitars currently have Mario's signature on the back of every headstock. Only now, the signature will take a prominent place on the front of every headstock, accentuating the boutique quality of every guitar.
"We've come a long way in a relatively short time" says Mario Martin. "We will continue to completely build everything in house, and our focus will remain of course, on quality not quantity.
