Martin D-42 Modern Deluxe
All of our Martin D42 Modern Deluxe guitars are brand new, factory-fresh, come with a Martin hardshell case and Martin Lifetime Warranty.
The D-42 Modern Deluxe supercharges the glamorous Standard Series D-42 with the addition of extra-opulent abalone appointments and the unique combination of tone-enhancing improvements found only in the Modern Deluxe Series.
The VTS Spruce top has abalone inlaid around the edge, the fretboard extension, and the sound hole. Its forward-shifted VTS Adirondack Golden Era braces are attached with natural protein glue for optimum energy transference. European flamed maple is used for all bindings; top, back, neck, and headstock.
The fast, comfortable Vintage Deluxe neck is made from Genuine mahogany and has a light yet strong titanium alloy support rod and a solid ebony fretboard as thin as a pre-war Martin’s, for even greater energy transference that gets as much tone out of the strings as possible.
The jet-black ebony fretboard has high-color abalone snowflake position markers that are trimmed in genuine mother-of-pearl and set off by orate snowflakes on the bridge, and the breathtaking torch inlay on the headstock, has its own mother-of-pearl trim, set off by golden tuning machines that match the upscale EVO Gold frets.
The full, complex Martin tone is likewise enhanced in volume and sustain by the Liquidmetal bridge pins with abalone dots, and the compound carbon fiber bridgeplate that contains a VTS Adirondack spruce core. Modern physics never sounded so awesome!
This marvelous Martin D-42 Modern Deluxe has the same construction and tonewoods as the D-45 Modern Deluxe, at a much lower price, because it doesn't have the extra pearl trim on the back and sides, which your audience never sees anyway.
So, if you want the best looking, best sounding Martin dreadnought possible, in this price range, give Maury a call today to be next in line, as these things are made in small numbers and take a good while for all that intricate craftsmanship to be completed!
