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.

The C.F. Martin D-16 Adirondack acoustic guitar fills the room with a rich acoustic tone. Constructed with a solid Adirondack spruce top and finished in a polished gloss that perfectly complements its solid genuine mahogany back and sides.

This pairing of balanced tonewoods adds just the right amount of warmth to the sound. The D-16 Adirondack is truly a guitar you’ll want to pass along for generations.
