    Our price:6.995,00

    Killer guitar, this 2007 Martin D-42 Custom NAMM-Special #8 of 19 made from the prized and very rare Cambodian Rosewood and premium Adirondack Red Spruce. Spectacular sound. Huge voice. Stunning.

    This rare Custom Shop D-42 is build with Cambodian Rosewood aka Dalbergia Bariensis. This wood is a dense, smooth Rosewood species that has all the qualities we want in a Rosewood. If you listen with your ears and not your eyes, it is an excellent substitue for Brazilian rosewood. Martin selected 19 sets with straight grain and a lovely warm and lush brown color. If you ignore the color, these look the most like the grain of the coveted pre-war guitars as anything has. Combined with an Adirondack Red Spruce top this babe will definately give you goose bumps.
