Exquisite Martin Custom Shop D build by the fine craftsman of the Martin Custom Shop. Spectacular sound. Huge voice. Premium tonewoods!
This fine Martin Custom Shop D is build with premium quarter sawn Guatemalan Rosewood and a magnificent mastergrade Sitka Spruce top. If you listen with your ears and close your eyes, Guatemalan Rosewood is an excellent substitute for Brazilian rosewood. From the amazing Martin wood stock we selected a very hard to find straight-grained and book matched set with a lovely warm and lush brown color. Combined with this set of perfectly straight-grained and beautiful silky premium Sitka Spruce top this babe make a tremendously powerful and dynamic guitar.
Sitka Spruce is the classic tonewood that differs from Alpine or Adirondack in tone and use. Thought it’s hard to describe differences in species of Spruce I would say that Sitka is softer/warmer sounding. It responds well to a light touch and give that classic tone we all know. This set is a premium selection of quarter sawn, straight and even grained wood in that classic yellowish color.
When we order a Custom Shop Martin we go the extra mile. In this case we asked the luthiers to make her extra special: we had the rosette inlay done with Abalone diamonds, a very pretty torch inlay in the headstock and totally in style topped up with torch inspired fretboard inlays. A unique guitar in every way. Listen to the soundsample here (clean recording, no effects):
