When traveling to the Lehigh Valley, make time to tour the Martin Guitar factory in Nazareth. You'll spend an hour in a small group (mine was 12), touring the factory where over 180 separate types of guitars are made. You'll be led by a knowledgeable tour guide, while wearing an audio set and earphones so that you can hear him/her... More

This place is about more than guitars. Approaching the address you would never guess that there was a factory located in the area. It is situated in a largely residential neighborhood. Our experience with Martin (including owning one) was great. I contacted guest relations and left a message by phone when I decided that we wanted to take the "Behind... More

A true factory tour. Free of charge. Small groups, each person with audio set and earphones, follow guide on a long informative walk through all sections of the facility, right past the artisans on their benches and seeing thousands of guitars in various states of manufacture (it turns out there are a LOT of processes involved in making a guitar)....

I had been wanting to visit this factory for several years. We finally went, and I was not disappointed. We had a young, sweet tour guide who seemed to know everyone in the factory, greeting people by name. The information we learned, and what we saw, all was fascinating.

Really enjoyed both the museum and factory tour. The museum is great after seeing the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland since so many of the musicians play on Martin guitars which may be the best in the industry. How they get built is fascinating.

We really enjoyed our trip to the Martin factory and museum. The look at how these great guitars are made (and the exceptional care the employees take in making them) was fantastic. The only complaint I would have was that the young lady offering the tour seemed totally uninterested in her job that day. She clearly knew everyone, and had... More

I brought my guitar in for tuning up and took the tour while there...anyone who owns a Martin Guitar should go on this tour. It is informative and what a hoot!

I don't plan a guitar but this was such an informative and interesting tour. Don't miss it. Very well organized and fascinating to see how much work goes into every single guitar. Made me want to learn!

Learned a lot during my tour. Was cool to watch people doing their individual parts of making a guitar come together.

I have lived in Nazareth for thirty five years and never visited the Martin Guitar factory. It was high time I did and I was quite surprised at the tour they offered. First of all, for anyone that plays the guitar, regardless of which brand, this is a must tour. Martin Guitars are hand made guitars and the tour lets... More
