For a complete discussion of Martin's early history, there's no better reference than Richard Johnston's book, Martin Guitars. For now, just take a look at some photos of an interesting Martin & Coupa guitar. This one has birdseye maple back and sides. Interestingly, the birdseye maple is a veneer laminated over Brazilian rosewood!
