Quality tone woods for maximum tone

You are probably already familiar with Martin 00 guitars, which by all counts are amazing guitars, well, Martin decided to take it up a notch with the Custom Shop 00-42. To begin with they upgrade the top to Adirondack spruce and the back and sides to Madagascar rosewood. Adirondack spruce is known for having an aged sound that requires less time to "break in". These two woods combine to create a rich, full, detailed sound. The internal scalloped bracing was even upgraded to Adirondack spruce.

Premium features abound on this magnificent guitar

Handcrafted by Martin's world-class luthiers, the Custom Shop 00-42 is truly a tribute to golden-era craftsmanship. With its 00 body and solid premium tonewood construction, the 00-42 is a loud but superbly balanced cannon. Its low profile select hardwood neck is topped with a black ebony fretboard. Grained ivoroid binding adds another touch of class to this already magnificent instrument. The tuners are Waverly gold 4060s with Butterbean knobs. Amazing playability and a bone nut and saddle complete this mouth-watering package.

Martin quality since 1833

So, why does a Martin sound so good? Consider the fact that the company has been making quality instruments since 1833, and what we might consider "modern" acoustic guitars since early in the 20th century. What's more, the company's commitment to quality has never wavered, so whether you're investing in a brand-new D-18 or inheriting a family heirloom vintage Martin, you know you're getting the best. The Custom Shop 00-42 acoustic guitar is an instrument that you'll want to keep for a lifetime, and you'll love Martin's uncompromising quality.
