A great story from Martin

We want to share with you a great documentary YouTube video that features Dick Boak. Dick has been an artist and guitar craftsman at the famous Martin company. Enjoy!

Martin videoMartin about Boak: "Dick Boak is one of those guys who does so many things so well, that you really don't know what to make of it. Everything he does, he does fully and deeply, with equal parts unbound artist and meticulous craftsman. He has an insatiable thirst for learning, understanding…and doing." 

If you're lucky enough to know someone like this, they often seem lost, wandering through life following their muse on an adventure in creativity. And perhaps, to an extent, things were like that for Dick. That is, until the mid-70s, when he stumbled into C.F. Martin & Co., the world's oldest family-run musical instrument maker. There, his gifts and talents would find a home, a unified purpose, and eventually turn him into a renowned figure at the mecca of the acoustic guitar world.
