Another Exceptional John Mayer Signature from Martin

The Martin 00-42SC John Mayer signature acoustic guitar is actually inspired by the 00-45SC Martin created in collaboration with John Mayer in 2012. In fact, Martin's John Mayer signature models have been best sellers since the first one in 2003. This 00-42SC John Mayer brings you the classic 12-fret design and smaller body style that players adore, plus exquisite details like Style 42 inlays and grained ivoroid body and fretboard binding. Call Sweetwater today to add a very special Martin to your collection: the 00-42SC John Mayer acoustic guitar.

Time-proven Martin quality

When you choose the Martin 00-42SC John Mayer signature acoustic guitar, you're getting an instrument that was designed and handbuilt by some of the best luthiers on the planet. The exotic tonewoods and fancy appointments are exceptional, but there are a lot of features in the 00-42SC John Mayer acoustic that Martin has refined over decades. You won't focus on things like the scalloped "X" bracing and hide-glue construction as you're playing it, but the tone speaks for itself.

Cocobolo Perfection

The Martin OO-42SC JM model is an amazing instrument. The guitar is a piece of art. Martin put care, attention and creativity into every inch of this guitar. The Cocobolo wood produces a totally amazing sound that you have to hear to appreciate. I have a nice collection of guitars and hate to use terms like, "this is my favorite." But I guess I have to contradict myself. This is my favorite. It is easy to play. Martin has outdone itself and Sweetwater quality control and set up had this guitar playing perfectly from the minute I unpacked it. By the way, the case is really awesome too. I want to add that the guitar I purchased was a demo. My sales consultant, Adam Briggs described the condition of the guitar to me before I made the purchase. I am very particular about imperfections. He is always professional (I have purchased multiple guitars from him) and let me know about every scuff or scratch that the demo had. I have purchased other demos from Sweetwater and I have always been pleased. The scuffs and imperfections are almost impossible to notice. In other words, this demo was (in my opinion) as perfect as a model right out of the box. This is a testament to the kind of company Sweetwater is and why I will loyally deal with Adam for future purchases. I really love this guitar.
