A Martin and Gretsch collaborative tribute to one of Nashville's greatest songwriters.

It's not often you partner with a rival guitar maker, but Martin and Gretsch have put "differences" aside to debut a second Merle Travis-inspired model that pays tribute to the Country Music Hall of Famer behind such songs as "Sixteen Tons" and the folk standard "Dark as a Dungeon," and the guitar he made famous in the late 1940s. Merle Travis is one of the most important guitar players of all time and is known for his unique playing style that is still known by guitarists today as “Travis Picking.” The D-28 Bigsby is built on the foundation of a newly reimagined D-28 (2017), and is crafted with East Indian rosewood. It features a maple high-performance taper neck fitted with the Bigsby headstock. The maple neck offers a unique tonal quality that adds sustain and brightness and pairs nicely with the warmth and depth of rosewood. The interior label is numbered and signed by Chris Martin IV and Fred Gretsch.

Case sold separately.

  • Paper label signed by CFM IV and Fred Gretsch, numbered with no total
