Crafted from rosewood and spruce, the Martin D-42 is the perfect mixture of classic Martin sound and truly exquisite aesthetics. Along with the rest of their updated 2018 flagship Standard Series models, Martin has reimagined their Style 40 instruments, but the D-42 still boasts its unique D-42 appointments that distinguish it from the other dreadnought models. As you'd expect from a Martin, the D-42 (2018) has all the quality and tone that make this a true Martin guitar through and through. If you're a pro acoustic player looking for an instrument with plenty of sonic horsepower and sophisticated looks, the D-42 is the answer.

Martin Style 40: Reimagined
Just like all Martin instruments, the Style 40 Martin guitars are all about premium quality, tone, and craftsmanship. What really sets the Style 40 guitars apart from the rest of the Standard Series are the absolutely breathtaking aesthetics and upscale style they offer. Future heirlooms that are sure to please discerning players for years to come, the Style 40 Martin guitars are made using the finest East Indian rosewood and a Sitka spruce top with hand-carved scalloped bracing for a deep, rich, powerful voice that's delivered with exceptional clarity. The updated forward shifted bracing on most models (except OM-42 and 000-42) will add some extra sonic horsepower to your sound, especially on the low end. Each model also sports Martin's ergonomic High Performance neck taper to provide you with superb comfort and playability while a selection of gorgeous abalone pearl adornments cater to its exquisite looks. Aging top toner, Antique White binding, and gold open-gear tuners give the Style 40 guitars that unmistakable old-school Martin vibe.

Unique D-42 Appointments
Compared to the D-41, the D-42 has some extra multi-stripe inlays here and there to add even more elegance to an already beautiful guitar. The D-42 bears gorgeous Style 45 snowflake inlays in abalone along with abalone top trim that continues along the bottom edge of the fretboard to provide a striking aesthetic touch. The abalone rosette and abalone block C.F. Martin headstock logo round out this wonderfully appointed package, making this the ultimate blend of sonic and visual beauty.

A True Martin Through and Through
For nearly 200 years, C.F. Martin & Co. has been crafting some of the world's finest instruments. Known for their exceptional quality, tone, craftsmanship, and industry-altering innovations, Martin Guitars is widely recognized across the globe.
