The 1,000,000th CF Martin guitar was finished in 2003, after two years of design and construction.  It was nerve-wracking and intense and fun all at the same time, and I had to take a couple months off to decompress when it was finished.


David Giulietti was the only other person I allowed to work on the inlays with me.  He engraved all the gold and the angels, cherubs and CF Martin features, as well as carving the gold bridge wing leaves and soundhole screen central boss.


Michael Reilly cast the emerald tipped gold bridge pins.
