Martin Custom Shop D-42K Hawaiian Koa Acoustic Guitar 2054109

Regular price $9,364.00 Sale

This Martin Custom Shop D-42K 'Highly Figured Koa' Acoustic is just stunning! Made from hand picked Hawaiian Koa, this guitar is striking on all levels. It plays as great as it looks, sounds equally amazing! Every aspect of this guitar has been thoughtfully constructed and done so with the utmost in attention to detail. Occasionally, Martin gets a stash of some incredible wood and that's exactly what happened here. 

The Highly Figured Koa used to contract this instrument was selected by Frank during a trip out to the Martin Factory. We ordered a handful of these All Koa 42's in a variety of body styles. This Dreadnaught is made from some killer looking Curly Koa! We had them do a rather light Red Burst on the edges, much like you'd find on Taylor's all Koa instruments. On top of being one of the most beautiful guitars we have seen, thanks to top notch craftsmanship, this guitar could not play any better.

The Performing Artist neck profile is the most comfortable neck Martin has ever put their name on so long hours of playing won't result in debilitating fatigue. Like most Koa guitars, this one has a brilliance to it that you just don't find with Rosewood. Its focused, bright tone will certainly cut through the mix. It's dressed like a 42 so you know it has all the bling you could ever want on it!

Hawaiian Koa is getting more expensive and subsequently, more rare. This kind of wood is not held in abundance by Martin so when they get it, it goes fast! Stop by the shop today before these beauties are gone!
