Martin M-42 Custom

A one-off piece from Martin's Custom Shop, this particular instrument is one of the very finest guitars we've ever seen from them. Grand Auditorium size, also known as "M" or "0000", this guitar was specially built for us using woods personally selected by me. The back and sides are stunning Madagascar rosewood, the top is of extra-select Alpine spruce. All dimensions are as the original M-size guitar that I built for David Bromberg in 1967, which Martin used as a model when they eventually came out with their production M-38 in 1979. Full 16"-wide body, 25.4" scale, 1-3/4" nut width. Complete Style-42 appointments all over with abalone trim around the edge of the top, full Style-45 abalone "snowflake" fingerboard inlays, plus two additional six-point abalone snowflake inlays on the bridge. Same kind of huge, magnificent tone as found on the "M-21 Steve Earle Artist Signature" model that Steve and I co-designed a few years ago, though with stunning best-grade Madagascar rosewood back and sides. Has the clearest range imaginable from top to bottom. A truly magnificent instrument.   w/hsc
