A Message from James Valentine

Maroon 5 guitarist and Martin Guitar brand ambassador James Valentine wishes the Rainforest Alliance a happy 30th anniversary.

The Rainforest Alliance helped found the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) in 1993, and today Martin Guitar uses sustainably harvested FSC certified wood in its instruments, including James' new custom Martin Dreadnought guitar.
