This guitar is AMAZING! I’m loving it man. Thanks again for building it for me. Can’t wait to debut it tonight in Salt Lake City. Send my thanks to the team/family.

Just wanted to let you know I just purchased one of your ‘El Chupacabra’ guitars with matching headstock. I really like it and wanted to commend you for the good work you do. I’m a collector and VERY picky about the many instruments I play and collect. Thanks for producing wonderful instruments.

Thanks very much it is a great sounding, resonant guitar. Love the blue color and the maple neck is very comfortable and light. Just finished playing it for 2 hours! Thanks again, it was worth the wait!
I just received the MM T-Style guitar. Wow! So light and so resonant and I think the most comfortable neck I have ever played. Absolutely beautiful too! Funny, but immediately thought now I need a Mario S like this too! Showed it to a couple of players I work with when it arrived and they had the same reaction – basically, wow, this thing is ridiculous. Particularly like the bridge pickup, cutting but not an ice pick. Also really like having the both pickups in series option in addition to the normal 3 T Style options. Finally, +1 for a heel truss rod that adjusts without taking the neck off.
I have finally received my new guitar and I absolutely LOVE it!! It is beautiful sounding and so amazing to play. The neck is perfect for me, and the finish on the guitar is so unique looking. I also love the Lollar pickups, I have never played these before. I am also very blown away by how light the guitar is, I think I remember your Facebook post saying it was around 6.8 pounds and alder. Please tell me how you found such a light body, and what kind of a tonal difference you notice with extremely light alder S-Style bodies? I am really curious, I have never in my life played a S-Style this light before. I am just in Orlando now, have a show at the Hard Rock Live tomorrow night and have my guitar with me to play. I can’t wait to use it on a show. Again I am very grateful for all of your time making this amazing instrument. Thanks so much 🙂
I purchased one of your T guitars new from Morgan Guitars last week. Beyond a doubt the best guitar I’ve ever held and played man!!!!! You create works of art!! This T style guitar is an absolute work of art. Thank you, sir!!
You built me the Jazz-Style guitar in late November and I absolutely love it! It has all the features I wanted and the Paulownia wood is amazing! I think it weighs around 5.5 to 6 pounds – which is a lot lighter than my other Gibsons and Fenders. I am amazed at the tone and how it plays. I couldn’t be happier with your work.
Love the guitar, love the weight, love the look! I’m telling all my guitar playing friends to go to your Facebook page and website to look at what you have to offer.
Well I finally got my Mario Guitar one week ago with the “C” neck. Quite possibly the
greatest current ‘F’ style made…no BS! It’s just a great guitar….and it’s MINE!
Picked up T-Style #115116 on Saturday. I now truly understand what all the fuss is about. “Killen” (that’s her new name), is one fine guitar! You should have seen the looks on the bands faces as I used a T-Style for the first time at rehearsal. Disbelief to start, after 3 hours of noise making I was informed that I should use her full-time! Thanks to everyone who had a hand in producing this gem!
Your relic T styles are to die for! So what is your technique for getting the stress cracks in your finish? Very nicely done and extremely believable. Probably the best I’ve seen. Oh and the nicks are artwork!
For T-Styles, there is no one you guys compete with. Awesome! The best! It is unbelievable how you guys finish a guitar!!!!!!!
I gotta know.. how did you simulate the temperature “checking? All the other builders guitars look like the used a compressed air spray can, and the checking is all uneven “spider webbing.” Mario, your finish checking looks REAL!!! Best damn T-style guitars out there!
“Mario Martin is making some of the finest T & S style guitars to ever grace our planet and it has got us wondering what to do to wake everyone up to that fact…
I personally play Mario Martin T and S style guitars. Whoever buys one is in for a treat beyond their wildest imagination and I guarantee it will provoke you to start thinning your herd and buying another Mario or two. I’m so confident that I’m willing to stand behind it and offer a full refund less freight for anyone wise enough to step up and make the smartest purchase of their guitar buying history.” – Cliff Cultreri (Destroy All Guitars)
