Remaining true to its origins, the 000-42 Authentic 1939 is meticulously crafted with hide glue construction, dovetail neck joint, solid Adirondack spruce top with Vintage Tone System, solid Madagascar rosewood back and sides and black ebony fingerboard and bridge. This is a 000 model that will reward players with its rich sustain and crisp tone for generations.
The Martin 000-42 Authentic 1939 is the Perfect Guitar for the Finger Picker! The Genuine Mahogany Neck is carved to a Authentic 1939 Profile with the Standard Taper. A slightly shorter 24.9" scale length gives this Martin a slinkier string tension than your typical 000 or Dread. The neck is adhered with a Dovetail Joint, set with Hide Glue, the ultimate in tone! Other notable neck features are a nut width of 1 and 11/16", a Madagascar Rosewood Headplate with Script Old Style Overlay.
This comfortable guitar produces well balanced tones and some serious volume for a smaller bodied guitar. The highs are crisp and clear the mids are full and punchy and the lows are not overwhelming or boomy: just the right amount of low end to give it a full sound. Thanks to it'sMadagascar Rosewood Back and Sides it produces excellent overtones and incredible harmonics. It reacts beautifully to the way it's played. Very hi definition. Due to it's more Vintage approach in manufacturing, this is not a guitar for the sloppy or inexperienced player. This guitar may be unforgiving but when you are on, you'll never sold better!
