• Martin Custom Shop D-42 Cambodian Rosewood – Adirondack Red Spruce NAMM Special #8 of 19 (2007)

    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.

    Cambodian Rosewood – Dalbergia Bariensis – 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.

    Original retail price is € 9.999,-. Ordering a custum shop with these specs today would retail at least 14k! Consignment sale, no returns.

    This guitar is in MINT condition.
