The typical Martin pickguard had the front point cut off and a notch in back to make room for the pickups rings.
The GT-70 was a re-styled two-pickup, single-cutaway recalling the F-55s.The cutaways were fairly wide and radical, cutting out at almost a right angle from the neck.The glued in necks had unbound 20-fret rosewood fingerboards, dot inlays and the typical squarish Martin three-and-three headstock. Each bore an elevated pickguard and had a distinctive moveable adjustable bridge made of clear plexiglass.These featured one tone and one volume control, with large two-tone plastic knobs situated down on the lower treble bout. The F Series consisted of three models, the F-50, F-55 and F-65, all with bodies slightly less than 2″ thick and made of maple plywood with bound tops.All three had shapes roughly reminiscent of the dreadnought that made Martin famous, though slightly exaggerated with a wider lower bout.The F-50 was the bottom of the line, a single cutaway with a single De Armond humbucker pickup, like those on the previous acoustic hybrids, in the neck position.
Controls were one volume and one tone control mounted along the edge of the lower treble bout, with black, chrome-topped knobs.
These had extended headstocks without the flared top, and the M trapeze tailpiece.
The F Series Martin electrics were before my awareness of the diversity of the guitar universe, but I recall the appearance of the GTs, which got to stores in Wisconsin in the summer of ’67.
Mention the subject of American acoustic guitars and one of the first names that will undoubtedly pop into your head will be C. The term “electrics” is not meant to include the company’s many fine acoustic-electric guitars, many sporting top-notch electronics (which ultimately remain acoustic beasts), but rather electric guitars meant for country chicken pickin’ or raunchy rock and roll.
Not that there aren’t many other estimable names, but Martin, by virtue of its longevity since 1833 and incredible quality remains the standard by which almost all steel-stringed acoustics are judged. Bring up the topic of electrics, and Martin is hardly the first name of recall.
The major change was moving the heel forward to the body juncture, eliminating the awkward body extension of the F-65. 1,555 GT-75s were built from January ’66 to October ’68.
