• Martin J-40 Rosewood – Sitka (SOLD)

    Category:

    Our price:

    The Martin J-40 was Martin’s first design for a jumbo guitar as the next step in the great quest for more volume.  She offers a lot of bass that balanced with the upper register as well.

    This Martin J-40 is a wonderful rhythm guitar because it supports a melody without the excessive boominess of a dreadnought. You also get a little more volume than the average dread. This acoustic guitar is also a surprisingly versatile instrument for a jumbo. In addition to the typical acoustic genres like folk or country, the Martin J-40 can be used for 80s jazz or other non-traditional genres. Of course in addition to the sound, the Martin J-40’s unique aesthetics make it a great choice for a musician who wants a little more punch to their look.

    Her condition is very good. Minor play wear and one repaired centre seam top-crack. This does not – in any way – affect the tone or durability. She is a classy guitar at an easy-going price. Check out a sound impression of the beauty below:
