❌SOLD❌ Martin D-42 Dreadnought Natural, 2005

Instrument Categories: , ,

The Martin D-42 is a spectacular guitar with classic but not overwhelming shell decoration and a huge, warm and rich voice.

This Martin D-42 was built during January of 2005 and is in overall very good condition with light play wear. As a 2005 model, it carries modern features like an adjustable truss rod and a pickguard that is applied after the finish, preventing the ‘classic’ pickguard top crack. Despite its clean condition – this guitar has been played and its well developed voice reflects this.

The original Martin hard shell case is included.

Here is the builder on the Martin D-42:

“With back and sides of premium East Indian rosewood and a Sitka spruce top, the Martin D-42 is highly appointed with pearl inlay and enhanced with vintage appointments, such as antique white binding and open gear tuners.

Massive bass response balanced with articulate highs and a high performance neck makes the Martin D-42 a beautifully appointed tonal masterpiece that makes playing for hours an easy task.”
