Cowboy V Limited Edition
The new Martin Cowboy guitar is here, the fifth in the series of Martin's unique Micarta guitars with the painted cowboy scene. The Cowboy Limited Edition series showcases original western art by illustrator Robert Armstrong on sturdy HPL (high pressure laminate) Martin guitars that sound as good as they look.
The Cowboy V Limited Edition's colorful top features C.F. Martin Chairman Chris Martin, wife Diane Repyneck and young daughter Claire Francis Martin on horseback in a western landscape near sunset, with Chris serenading his wife and daughter on guitar while their trusty dog, Buddy, trots alongside. Although Chris Martin appears on previous Cowboy Limited Editions (he is the man with the branding iron on Cowboy IV), this is the first time the entire family has been portrayed.
Only 500 Martin Cowboy V Limited Edition guitars will be produced. Each will be delivered in padded gig bag and each will bear a special interior Cowboy V Limited Edition label that will be numbered in sequence with the edition total.
