The Martin 000-42 Acoustic Guitar is one sought after for its amazing tone, comfortable body shape, and perfectly ornate dress. Indian Rosewood is teamed with Sitka Spruce for a harmonically rich tonal palette. A genuine Mahogany Neck is topped with an Ebony Fingerboard to drive home the classic Martin Recipe.
The ornate design and flash of the 42 Series adds panache to the classic tone of East Indian rosewood back and sides, a Sitka spruce scalloped X-braced top, and a hand-fit dovetail neck joint. Open geared tuners, antique white binding, polished gloss finish, and abalone pearl top inlay offers exquisite style with complex tone. Short scale and a sleek modified low-oval neck with narrow taper mean strumming and picking for hours in comfort and bliss.
Martin performs a factory Plek Fret Dressing during construction and the results are a buzz-free playing experience. This revolutionary machine has been making guitars far more playable than they have ever been and that's why leading manufacturers like Martin and Gibson have been using them for years! And guess what? We have a Plek Machine of our own, on-premises! Watch a video about the Plek Machine process here or check out an in-depth Blog Post with before and after pics here!
