The latest Martin D-42, with its iconic prewar Style 45 snowflake inlays and heirloom visuals, looks, plays, and sounds better than ever. This D-42's High Performance Taper mahogany neck delivers modern playability without disrupting the iconic Martin dreadnought strum. Its high-grade spruce top with aged toner finish looks and sounds like an antique dream; underneath, forward-shifted, scalloped X-bracing enhances bass for a big, resonant bottom end. Butterbean gold open-gear tuners, abalone inlays, and antique white binding complete the look.

    Vintage appeal, modern convenience

    This beautiful dreadnought takes its cue from Martin's coveted prewar acoustics. It's an old soul with a host of vintage features and appointments, including an aged-finish high-grade spruce top, traditional Style 45 snowflake fingerboard inlays, antique white binding, and gold butterbean tuning knobs. Even so, this D-42's bass-enhancing bracing and Martin's latest High Performance Taper Modified Low Oval neck equip it for 21st-century recording and performance. If you're in the market for a classic Martin dreadnought, consider the D-42 form Music Experience.
