Martin Custom Shop D-14 Limited-edition Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:
- Unique tonewoods for premium tone
- Premium features abound on this magnificent guitar
- Martin quality since 1833
You are probably already familiar with Martin dreadnought guitars, which by all counts are amazing guitars. Well, Martin decided to take it up a notch with the Custom Shop D-14. To begin with, they upgraded the top to Adirondack spruce and the back and sides to quilted bubinga. 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 Golden Era bracing using Adirondack spruce.Premium features abound on this magnificent guitar
Handcrafted by Martin's world-class luthiers, the Custom Shop D-14 is truly a tribute to golden-era craftsmanship. With its dreadnought body and solid premium tonewood construction, the D-14 is a very loud but superbly balanced cannon. Its unique 3-piece maple neck is topped with a black ebony fretboard. Quilted maple binding adds another touch of class to this already magnificent instrument. The tuners are Waverly gold 4060s with Butterbean knobs. Amazing playability and a preserved mammoth ivory nut and saddle complete this mouth-watering package.Martin quality since 1833
So, why does a Martin sound so good?
