Manufacturer's ID: 10D42

What we say:

With its thick white binding, abalone trim and vertical headstock logo, the D-42 is very much a ‘pre-war’ Martin design.

This beautiful dreadnought is a lynchpin of the Martin Standard Series, a simultaneously historic and timeless dreadnought that appeals equally for its tone, feel and beauty.

The D-42 has that classic combination of Sitka Spruce and East Indian Rosewood that Martin players love. The tone - crisp, big and complex - is as distinct as it is defining.

A snowflake-inlayed Ebony fingerboard provides a quietly luxurious playing surface and a wealth of Abalone adorns the rosette, headstock and body trim.

Martin’s famous forward-shifted X bracing combines with the dreadnought shape and tonewood combination to produce a guitar that is absolutely classic in every way.
