    Our price:

    Exquisite Martin Custom 000-42, offering a warm and superb tone with excellent playability and supreme craftsmanship. The tone of the instrument is just warm and mellow, with wonderful overtones and balance. Dream guitar!

    This Martin Custom 000-42 is built with incredible craftsmanship and constructed from the finest materials. She features a natural full gloss finish, providing a pleasing look to complement the elegance of the perfectly grained premium Alpine Spruce and a beautiful set of striped Indian Rosewood.  On top of that she is outfitted with style 42 inlays. Awesome looks! Alpine spruce is a tonewood with the longest tradition in music instrument making, having been used in making guitars, violins, and pianos for centuries. At present, premium Alpine Spruce is becoming an exclusive material because it is more and more difficult to find wood with the high grade needed to ensure the high Martin Custom Shop standard. From a tonal perspective, Alpine Spruce offers more focus, with slightly stronger fundamentals and very sweet high notes and lots of overtones. Paired with Indian Rosewood, the guitar has that ‘reverby’ sound and complexity. This Martin Custom Shop 000-42 is an exquisite looking tone machine, perfect for the blues and fingerstyle guitarist.

    The Martin Custom Shop luthiers delivered an exquisite looking tone machine. This 000-42 is perfect for any style acoustic guitarist. Listen to a sound sample here:
