Part of Martin’s re-imagined Standard Series, the D-42 has been outfitted with antique white binding and a Modified Low Oval neck with Performance Taper. It still features a Sitka spruce top with aging toner, East Indian rosewood back and sides, and attractive abalone top trim (including a connecting link around fretboard extension as on the D45). Other details include scalloped braces, forward shifted X bracing, a bound ebony fretboard with 45-style snowflakes, and a tortoise plastic pickguard. A beautifully appointed tonal masterpiece, the D-42 delivers massive bass response balanced with articulate highs.   More Details...
