Harvey Leach creates Custom Inlay for C. F. Martin 1.5-Millilonth Guitar

January 6, Livermore, CA – Master inlay artist Mr. Harvey Leach has been commissioned by C. F. Martin & Co. to create the inlay artwork for a landmark guitar: the 1.5-millionth Martin guitar, of a continuous production that spans back to 1833.

“First, I’d like to thank Chris Martin for giving us the opportunity to work on this project,” said Harvey Leach. “To me, an inlay project is like a performance and a great performance deserves a big stage. In the guitar world there is no bigger stage than the one built by C. F. Martin & Co. for the past 175-plus years, and to be involved in something as significant as the 1.5 Millionth Martin Guitar is a true honor.”

Titled “da Vinci Unplugged”, this epic instrument depicts an inlay of the famous Mona Lisa at the headstock, as well as other da Vinci-themed inlay work throughout the body and neck of the guitar. This guitar will also feature scrimshaw artwork among the inlay, crafted by artist Bob Hergert.

Harvey Leach ranks among the top inlay artists in the world, and is also the inventor of the Voyage-Air folding travel guitar. In his 38-year career, Harvey has built over 350 guitars, which are treasured as some of the finest instruments in the world. 

The da Vinci Unplugged guitar will be displayed at Martin Guitar booth #5454, Hall B at the Winter NAMM Show 2011.  You can also drop by and meet Mr. Harvey Leach in person at the Voyage-Air Guitar booth #1401, Hall E at the NAMM Show.
