Music Background: Playing guitar 40 years
by Bill Walsh fromThe playability and the tone are both incredible. The guitar brand new already sounds like it's been played in. It was the best sounding guitar I played, out of many I tried. It has that great Mart... read more [+]in sound I was looking for. I've let others try it out, they all say "WOW!" at the first strum. How could I NOT walk out with the best sounding guitar in the store? Pick one that sounded "almost" as good, but not quite!? I would have kicked myself later on. And I could pick it out of a crowd, blindfolded. It's that good! close [-]

BEST ACOUSTIC IN THE WORLD
by C.B. from DENMARKThe 42 sounds way better than anything else among high end acoustic guitars. It´s warmer and brighter than the D-45 (and 41)

It´s not "only" the best Martin in the standard serie. I seriously belive, that this is THE acoustic guitar in the world - and as a 100 pct. pro recording musician I´ve played them all !
King of Kings
by Teleez from NYIf you are reading this-you already know what time it is. Time to get a sweet Martin. You know Martins make some serious guitars-however, they are a business and their lineup does include many "starte... read more [+]r models". This is the other end of the spectrum. 1st class all the way around-beautiful binding and the inlays are simply gorgeous. Once you get past all the visual bling-pick her up. Perfectly balanced and it feels like it was made for your hands alone. Pluck a few notes-you'll immediately notice how responsive this guitar is. The tones reverberate through the neck into the top and each note surrounds you-not just via the soundhole-the entire tone envelopes you and seems to put you into a cloud of notes. It really is that good. Martin makes a good number of other guitars that can give you the same tone without all the bling (and the expense that comes with it) so those are worth a look see. I really love the H 28 though depending on what model you want-those prices can get up there in a hurry. No pickup, electronics,etc so remember that-just a solid acoustic that is about as good as it gets. Period. close [-]

by Chris M. from Somers Point, NJMy Martin D-42 is the finest instrument I have ever played. The tone is rich, sweet and balanced. Makes the best of players who try it go "wow".

Martin the company is first rate and the company tour is wonderful. Its quite big but they do many things the old fashioned way and most of the employees have been there a long time.The tour is worth the effort. Everytime I open that case I get hit with that rosewood smell and astonishing beauty. It is simply the best! close [-]
