CUSTOM MAJOR KEALAKAI
Major Kealakai was a guitar, trombone, and flute player trained by the Royal Hawaiian Band and was inducted into the Hawaiian Music Hall of Fame in 1996. In 1916, Martin made the Major a unique custom guitar that was wider, deeper, and longer than a 000. Designed to be louder to help fill concert halls, this historic guitar was the precursor to the Dreadnought.
Martin honors Major Kealakai with this limited edition 12-fret custom instrument. It features a vintage gloss finished sinker mahogany back and sides that are complemented with Madagascar rosewood binding and a vintage gloss finished Adirondack spruce VINTAGE TONE SYSTEM® (VTS) top. It also includes a dovetail neck joint, hide glue construction, an authentic 1931 neck shape and 1931 X-bracing, and a slotted headstock with Golden Age relic nickel side-mount tuners. This limited-edition gem comes with a quality hardshell case.
