Vintage Goodness with Modern PlayabilityThe Martin D-42 Sinker Mahogany Acoustic Guitar drips with authenticity. A superb rendition of the classic Martin "Golden Era" D-42 dreadnought, the D-42 Sinker seduces you with its potent allure - a heady concoction of hand-selected tonewoods, exquisite, tasteful appointments, and impeccable tone. Taking its cue from from Martin's much-loved prewar period instruments, this guitar is graced with vintage features such as a solid Adirondack spruce top, an ebony fingerboard with Style 45 Snowflake inlays, and a polished gloss sunburst finish. If you're into vintage acoustics, the Martin D-42 Sinker Mahogany will float your boat.
Martin D-42 Sinker Mahogany Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:
Classic, "just right" Martin tone: it's the mahogany
The Martin D-42 Sinker Mahogany is a tone-meister. Ask anyone who knows their bluegrass (or just about any other genre) why the Martin D-42 is a top choice for serious performers. It's because mahogany-bodied dreadnoughts' iconic tone sits "just right" in the mix, cutting through and holding its own without infringing on other instruments. Whether you're playing solo, or jamming with others, your D-42's rich tone is always perfect. In a full band setting, you'll always be heard - without fighting the vocals or interfering with the bass player.
Dressed to kill in tasteful classic appointments
If you've a penchant for vintage acoustics (and of course we're talking Martins here), the guitar you conjure in your 6-string dreams probably resembles the D-42 Sinker Mahogany. That's because Martin set out to create the spittin' image of one of their premium pre-war dreadnoughts. Did they succeed? Most assuredly, in our opinion. This axe is slathered in tasteful, yet eye-catching "Golden Era" appointments such as Martin's classic Style 45 Snowflake fingerboard inlays, 1930s Belly-style black ebony bridge, and vintage polished gloss sunburst finish. The net result is the guitar of your dreams - and ours, as well!
Modern playability, Martin-style
When you wrap your fretting hand around the D-42 Sinker Mahogany's 20-fret modified-V profile neck, you'll feel instantly at home. With this guitar, Martin didn't sacrifice playability for the sake of vintage correctness. Your fingers will fly up and down the buttery black ebony fingerboard with its solid Madagascar rosewood binding. This is a flawlessly executed instrument - just what you'd expect from Martin, a company whose 150-plus years of guitar-making experience has made its name synonymous with "acoustic guitar."
