C.F. Martin D-42 - The Twelfth Fret

C.F. Martin D-42

The C.F. Martin D-42 features the classic, unmistakable Martin Dreadnought body built with back and sides of premium solid East Indian rosewood and a Sitka spruce top, and is enhanced with vintage appointments found on many Martin pre-war classic guitars.

This instrument 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 C.F. Martin D-42 a beautifully appointed tonal masterpiece that makes playing for hours an easy task.

Similar to the Martin D-45 but with a bit less decoration, the Martin D-42 also features forward-shifted scalloped bracing.

The massive bass response typical of D-style bodies balanced with articulate highs makes the D-42 a fine choice for the discerning player.
