Killer guitar, this brand new Martin D-Custom build by the fine craftsman of the Martin Custom Shop. Spectacular sound. Huge voice. Stunning tonewoods!
This rare Martin D-Custom is build with premium quarter sawn Guatemalan Rosewood and premium Sitka Spruce for the top. If you listen with your ears and not 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 bookmatched set with a lovely warm and lush brown color. If you ignore the color, this wood look the most like the grain of the coveted pre-war guitars as anything has. Combined with this set of perfectly straight grained and beautiful silky premium Sitka Spruce top this babe make a tremedously powerful and dynmic guitar.
Sitka Spruce is the classic tonewood that differs from Alpine or Adirondack in tone and use. Thought its 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, straigt and even grained wood in that classic yellowish color.
When we order a Martin D-Custom we always want the extra mile. So 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 totaly in style topped up with torch insprired fretboard inlays. A unique intrument in every way. From a tonal point of view this is about as good as it gets in this price range. Full, dynamic modern tones, excellent string balanced
