Martin Whips Out FSC Certified Mendes Signature Axe

by Mat Dirjish

C.F. Martin & Co. (Martin Guitar) is launching the 000JR-10E Shawn Mendes custom signature acoustic guitar. According to Martin Guitar, the 000JR-10E is company’s largest production run of 100% Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified guitars and Mendes’ first official artist signature guitar. Mendes said, “It aligns with my passion for sustainability and supports the Shawn Foundation’s initiatives.”

Based on Shawn’s go-to vintage Martin, his signature model guitar sports FSC certified tone woods, a 000 Junior-size footprint, 14-fret fingerboard, and comes with a gig bag made from recycled ocean plastic that meets the Global Recycled Standard. It also features some of Shawn’s personal design details. For example, a swallow inspired by the tattoo on Shawn’s right hand is laser etched on each wing of the bridge. Other cosmetic features include a unique label featuring the Shawn Mendes Foundation sunburst logo and Shawn’s signature inlaid at the top of the fretboard.

Of course, there’s more. Some of Shawn’s lyrics are laser etched somewhere inside the guitar, perhaps on a brace, or under the bridge, or under the rosette. Perhaps, as they are not visible and hard to find, are they important?

Other features include Fishman Sonitone electronics and, surprisingly, a retail price of $799.00. Anyone who knows guitars also knows Martin makes some of the greatest and most expensive acoustic guitars on the market. But at this price point, the Mendes model is within reach of pros, collectors, and beginners who happen to have an after-school job that pays decently.

As per Shawn Mendes, “Creating this guitar alongside Martin has been a dream of mine. The signature we created together is not only something I’m proud of musically, but also because it aligns with my passion for sustainability, and supports the Shawn Foundation’s initiatives. I can’t wait to share a guitar I love with fans across the world.”
