Martin Guitar Partners with SITKA Gear and Thomas Rhett On a Collaboration for Conservation.
September 29, 2022

SITKA Gear is thrilled to introduce SITKA Studio, a new innovation incubator that aims to expand the boundaries of culture through design exploration, brand collaborations and conservation. To debut SITKA Studio, the brand has partnered with one of America’s oldest instrument makers, Martin Guitar, and three-time ACM Male Artist of the Year winner, Thomas Rhett, in a Collaboration for Conservation. “Together we created a custom Martin guitar symbolizing our collective stoke for wild places, craftsmanship and music,” said SITKA Studio’s Brand & Creative Leader, Brad Christian.

In honor of these iconic brands, SITKA Studio has partnered with Martin Guitar to customized a one-of-one Martin HD-28 to feature a GORE-TEX Fabric pickguard in Optifade Camo and SITKA’s “Darkest Before Dawn” mallard design inlay.

From October 28 through November 15, 2022, SITKA will auction off the customized guitar, which Thomas Rhett has been playing on his Bring the Bar to You tour, with the goal to fund an ambitious waterfowl research project with partners including University of Arkansas at Monticello, California Waterfowl, Five Oaks Ag Research & Education Center, Delta Waterfowl, Ducks Unlimited and other conservation organizations. The monies raised by the sale of this guitar will be used to encourage a national collaboration with on-going projects to establish a continent-wide study of Mallard ducks. SITKA will match auction bids up to $50,000 to help further fund these efforts.

“This guitar has been out with me from coast to coast this summer and I’m pumped to pass it on to the new owner in November,” said Thomas Rhett, a special friend of SITKA and Martin Guitar ambassador. “It makes more than music. It makes a statement that represents my love for the outdoors and our efforts to keep it wild for generations to come.” “As hunters and harvesters, we have the opportunity, and responsibility, to support the ecosystems that sustain us. It’s this belief that fuels SITKA’s relentless support of conservation efforts and with the Collaboration for Conservation, we couldn’t be more excited to contribute to this waterfowl research project as a part of our wider effort,” said Lindsey Davis, SITKA’s Director of Conservation.
