This Martin Custom Shop D-42 Cocobolo Acoustic Guitar in Ambertone Sunburst is brand new and comes with its manufacturer's warranty and original hardshell case. This is a one-of-a-kind guitar with hand-selected woods!
Cocobolo is an exceptional tonewood that has become far more appreciated over the last few years. It is not only visually more interesting than most pieces of rosewood but it is extremely toneful with a rich, dense tone similar to tasty species of Rosewood like Brazilian and Madagascar. The back panels offer expert bookmatching for a similar look across panels. They also feature gorgeous colors and captivating grain patterns, as do the sides. The body is bound in highly figured Hawaiian Koa.
The top is made from Adirondack Spruce. This species of Spruce offers incredible stiffness and projection, well beyond the average piece of Sitka Spruce. If you need more volume, more bass, and more treble, then Adirondack is a must-have! The top braces are also made of Adirondack Spruce. They are arranged in an X pattern, forward-shifted, and scalloped for maximum output.
The neck is made from Genuine Mahogany and it is carved to Martin's Modified Low Oval Neck Profile with their High-Performance Taper. This is an exceptionally comfortable neck for strummers and fingerpicker's alike. The fingerboard is made from a sumptuous piece of jet black Ebony. The fingerboard is also bound for a look loaded with contrast. Snowflake 45 inlays of Abalone adorn the fingerboard and the headplate also has a stunning inlay made of Abalone.
The bridge is made from Ebony and shaped to the Modern Belly Style. It has 2 Snowflake Inlays made from Abalone. It also features a bone saddle that is compensated for increased intonation. It has White Bridge Pins with Paua Inlays.
This is a stellar, one-of-a-kind D-42 with Cocobolo and it certainly won't last long! Beautiful on every level, this is not the type of guitar you come across every day!
