You are looking at a Martin D-42 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar, serial number 1762009. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

Reminiscent of those coveted pre war Martin guitars, the D-42 embodies everything you've come to expect from a Martin acoustic, from premium choice tonewoods, to shimmering vintage-style appointments, all tied together with an acoustic voice that is truly beautiful. The Martin D-42 is crafted from solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, and is combined with a solid Sitka spruce soundboard with forward shifted scalloped "X" bracing to help produce its well-balanced tone--from its massive low-end, to its full, rich midrange and articulate trebles. The Martin D-42 is as much of a treat to the eyes as it is to the ears, adorned with grained ivoroid body binding, black and white boltaron back and side inlays, a style 45 back purfling, and stunning abalone pearl accents that outline the top and the soundhole.

The select hardwood neck is carved into the comfortable low profile shape and topped off with a grained ivoroid-bound ebony fingerboard that boasts gorgeous select abalone pearl style 45 snowflake inlays. A perfect match to the fingerboard, the ebony belly bridge is inlaid with select abalone snowflake inlays, and employs a 16" radius compensated bone saddle. At the other end of the guitar, the bound headstock wears a select abalone pearl block Martin logo and comes equipped with a set of gold Gotoh open-geared tuners with butterbean knobs, both contributing to the traditional Martin vibe of this D-42. To ensure the full protection of this Martin D-42 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar, a molded hardshell case is included with your purchase.
