Why We Love This
This Martin Custom Shop 42-style dreadnought features flamed Koa from our hand-picked wood stash; and it's spec'd to pay homage to Martin's limited edition D-42K of years past. We've upgraded the aesthetic with an Ambertone finish, and upgraded the tonewoods with a premium-grade, high-altitude Swiss spruce top.
This is a dreadnought with a regal sound to match its handsome looks. The bass is powerful, woody, and focused, with crisp mids and a sparkling high end replete with complex overtones. It's certainly capable of the traditional, booming Martin horsepower (albeit with enhanced clarity), but it also sounds dynamite in alternate tunings played fingerstyle. If you're in the market for a unique and great-sounding dreadnought, give us a call to rap about this one! Priced with Martin hardshell case (style 545E, black exterior, burgundy interior).
