1973 was a fateful year for Dick Boak, it was in that year that he found the Martin Guitar Company and was soon after hired as a design craftsman. For over 40 years Boak has had the privilege to hold many diverse positions at Martin, including leading the formation of the Artist Relations department, leading him to work on the development of over 140 different artist model guitars.
Now, a Martin Archivist, Boak teamed up with Martin to create the unique D-Boak signature Martin Dreadnought. This special Martin highlights the artwork of Boak, depicting the Martin Factory while showing the craftsmanship of the scalloped X bracing, made famous by Martin.
"Tonally, the guitar is clear, projective and glassine. Anyone who has had the pleasure of working with Dick Boak over the past 40 years knows the impact that his creativity and love of guitars has made upon the company and the industry. This edition celebrates and shares his long and storied tenure at C. F. Martin & Co." -Martin.com
