The Martin Simpson Signature model has become one of Sobell's most popular guitars, chosen not only by Martin but also by Mark Knopfler, Darrell Scott and many others.
He builds no more than six MS Signature models in any one year so this is your chance to get one without being on the waitlist.
This guitar a wider upper bout and a larger lower bout and was a little deeper, giving it a greater body capacity. This gives it a big sound, bigger than that of a 000 size guitar, but without the boomy bass of some jumbo and dreadnought guitars. And the volume isn’t at the expense of sustain, both bass and treble sustain well.
The long scale suits tuning down well, so the tunings Martin uses that require low D and low C work well. It’s a very stable guitar and holds its tuning well over long periods of time.
