Sound and Video

As a ‘nod’ to Martin Guitars celebrating the 100th anniversary of the dreadnought guitar, Mahon guitars are offering this beautiful sloped shoulder ‘12 fret model’ designed and endorsed by Johnny Butten.

Called a ’12 fret’ due to the body being extended to join the neck at the 12th fret, instead of the standard 14th fret junction. This gives the guitar a warm deep bass with sweet rounded trebles.

Features an enlarged soundhole and the ‘JB’ logo at the 12th fret. Every part is beautifully crafted with traditional luthiery hand tools.
