C.F. Martin & Co. (www.martinguitar.com), one of the largest producers of acoustic guitars in  the world, has announced the trademark of the distinctive headstock  configuration it has been using on its guitars for over 161 years.  This is part  of its ongoing commitment to protect its intellectual property, including the  many innovations in design, manufacture and production of the finest instruments  in the world.

“The clean, simple, iconic shape of the Martin guitar  headstock has long been recognized by consumers as one of the primary  identifying brand and design elements of our guitars,” said C. F. Martin &  Co. Vice President, Corporate Operations Gregory Paul.  “Use of this shape by  others can only be intended to create confusion in the marketplace.”

Martin Guitar has been using for many years various  trademarks and proprietary designs and designations in connection with the sale  of its acoustic guitars, both nationwide and internationally.  This intellectual  property includes Martin’s guitar headstock that has been used since at least  1850.  The headstock configuration is now protected by U.S. Trademark  Registration No. 3,048,307.  Any questions regarding this trademark, other C. F.  Martin & Co. intellectual property, or possible counterfeiting thereof,  should be addressed to Gregory Paul, P.O. Box 329, Nazareth, PA 18064-0329.
