Featuring elegant cosmetic appointments and brimming with exceptionally rich Martin tone, the 000-42 is absolutely beautiful in terms of both look and sound. It features a time-tested tonewood combination: a Solid Sitka Spruce (X-braced) top that provides a well-defined midrange with crisp highs, and Solid East Indian Rosewood back and sides that yield dense, resonant bass to give the guitar a balanced, yet distinctly responsive overall sound. Chock-full of eye-catching appointments, it exudes luxury with beautifully figured tone woods, gold hardware, and brilliant abalone inlays and purfling. Its exceptional playability is highlighted by its 000-14 fret body size, Modified Low Oval neck, and 1 3/4" bone nut, making it perfect for fingerstyle players. For an absolutely phenomenal mesh of aesthetics, playability, and authentic Martin tone, there's no better choice than the 000-42.
