What we say:
At A Glance
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.
This D-42 is part of the Reimagined Series. The Reimagined Series is, as the name suggests, a new perspective on the famous Martin Standard range. The changes are subtle but welcome: the clear coat finish has a tinted toner to give a more aged appearance; the headstock bears an older-style logo & open gear tuners; the body has aged binding and the neck is a modern carve for a more comfortable feel. All of these little changes accumulate to give this Reimagined D-42 a fresh, refined look that is entirely in keeping with Martin & Co’s rich heritage.
Features We Love:
Sitka Spruce Top
Sitka is a great choice for a top wood. It is strong yet still lightweight giving the best of both worlds. It produces an articulated and powerful tone with great projection. It is also a wood that sounds better as it ages, so you are really investing in a great guitar for the future too.
Martin Forward Shifted X-Brace System
Martin's X-Brace system dates back almost 200 years, designed to present the perfect balance between reliability and optimised tonal quality, in a guitar that will last a lifetime. This "forward-shifted" and scalloped design moves the X towards the neck and removes wood mass, retaining support and rigidity whilst allowing the section behind the bridge to resonate. The result is a reliable guitar that is loud and offers a spectacular bass response, pronounced tone and singing resonance.
This model is packed full of stylistic appointments. Gold hardware, abalone in the fretboard, rosette, bridge pin dots, and body trim, this model is kitted out and it looks fantastic!
