Martin D-42 Sinker Mahogany SOLD

Here’s a brand-new Martin D-42 Sinker Mahogany dreadnought, built specifically for the summer 2012 NAMM show, in a limited run of 15 guitars. This is number 10.

Though Martin has built ’42’ series instruments since 1898, the first dreadnought version of the D-42 was introduced in 1986. The next step up in decoration is the 45 series, but that’s not to say that the 42 is lacking.

The term ‘sinker’ generally means that the wood in question is essentially salvaged from the bottom of rivers. During logging transport, the densest logs might sink and not be recovered for long periods of time, in some cases 100 years or more.

Martin 00-18G 1958 (consignment) SOLD

Here is a very clean Martin 00-18G, built in 1958.

In the late 1950’s folk music revivals started in many countries. In response to this, instrument companies started making more nylon string instruments, which differ from what we now call ‘classical’ instruments in many ways. They are based on steel-string instruments, are intended to be strummed or plucked, and the neck is narrow enough that you can use your thumb for fretting!
