the purpose might be more communication



by just doing so, you see them, and Martin's name, everywhere on guitar website. It's more effective to remind people about Martin brand than just an advertise. And they dont have to pay for the advertisement.

I wish they'd do these painted tops on a 000/OM guitar. I'd be all over it!
Order one .
What I find interesting is the abundance of Maple being used .

Only 3 of the nine are the "gawdy" painted ones. All the rest seem like variations of existing models and not too out of the ordinary.

I had my pitchfork and torches ready and everything...
