Martin guitar factory has always been on my family's agenda, and finally we took the trip, a little over one hour away from our home, and it was really worth it. You don't need to make an appointment unless you are a group of ten or more. When you get there, you get on the next tour, which may be a wait depending on time of year, and you wait around looking at a nice museum with guitar nostalgia. It's interesting. Also you can play with some guitars that are waiting to be played. The tour actually takes you through the factory proper, and it's around 20-30 min. All the workers are quite talented and almost everything is hand done. We all know that the guitars are quite costly, but the point of the tour is to show you why that is. They show you everything from start to finish, it's quite impressive. I'm not a guitar aficionado, but I was still impressed. My family who owns several guitars, not necessarily Martin brand, were very impressed. I highly recommend this free tour.
