A gorgeous guitar that pays homage to Martin's heritage while serving up some serious eye candy.
Why We Love This
More than two years ago, we picked out about a half dozen sets of exceptional flamed Koa with our friends at the Martin Custom Shop; and the completed guitars have finally started arriving! This style-42 000 is one of the most dressed-up guitars of the bunch, featuring a knockout Koa top trimmed with abalone purfling.
This guitar's voice is warm, warm, warm, without sacrificing sparkle in the high end. Needless to say, it's an excellent fingerpicking guitar, but if you're searching for a small-bodied strummer with impressive volume and projection that's focused and lighter on the overtones -- this is your guitar. Priced with hardshell case from Martin.
