A quote from "MARTIN MASTERPIECES" regarding this special model:

He (Jimmy) loved the Caribbean and asked that we (Martin guitars) come up with a simple palm-tree motif, swaying gently in the warm tropical breeze. We did. It was tasteful and elegant, cut delicately from an assortment of lustrous pearl and abalone, and nested under the cove of the Martin logo.
