A journey shaped by a guitar

The New York TimesThe New York Times has an interesting article published last Friday (2/22) entitled A Journey Shaped by a Guitar. It gives an insight into the workings of the famous Martin Guitar company’s Nazareth, Pennsylvania, factory.

Spoken of in terms of being a tourist attraction, it outlines what a visitor may see of the guitar-making process and the facilities and services provided.

The full illustrated story can be read at the New York Times website, including a number of multi-media features.
