The guitar is modelled after Mendes’ own go-to vintage Martin acoustic, and was crafted with sustainability in mind, made from 100 per cent Forest Stewardship Council-certified tonewoods, and includes a gig bag made from recycled ocean plastic.
Mendes chose to go for a scaled-down auditorium-style body, with a small 000 junior size and compact 14-fret design, ensuring comfort for players of all sizes and skill levels.
The guitar features several personal touches too, that fans of Shawn Mendes will truly appreciate.
Laser etched on the bridge is a swallow inspired by the tattoo on Mendes’ hand, and in addition to this, each instrument has a hidden song lyric engraved inside the guitar body.
Swallows are meaningful to Mendes, as they are known to leave their home, but always return, much like a touring musician.
To top it off, the multi-platinum artist’s signature is inlaid at the top of the fretboard.
