CF Martin

  Between 1959 and 1965, CF Martin produced a range flat-top roundhole and archtop guitars, each fitted with one or two DeArmond Model 2000 pickups.  These pickups each have an irregularly-shaped ope in the top, as seen below.  This particular variation on the standard 2000 pickup is unique to CF Martin.
