Fresh out of the Martin Custom Shop is this absolutely stunning 14-fret dreadnought. This is a premium guitar in every sense of the word, with a harmonically rich, sweet sound thanks to a special finish and hand-selected tonewoods picked out by our co-owner and Martin specialist Ben Derickson. This dreadnought’s body is made of downright gorgeously figured Cocobolo, with an Adirondack Spruce top. These woods not only have an incredible look, but an incredible sound, which is also thanks to a special thin Non-Catalyzed Gloss finish on top, and an ICA Polished Lacquer finish on the body. This allows the Adirondack Spruce and Cocobolo to breathe exceptionally well, so you get more volume, and a crisp response. Plus, this D-14 Fret’s Genuine Mahogany, Performing Artist Taper neck and 16” fingerboard radius makes playing it easy, whether you’re a rhythm or lead player. Top everything off with a 28 Style Marquis Rosette, Faux Tortoise 3071 pickguard, grained ivoroid binding, and select abalone Foden style inlays, and you have a Martin that not only has astounding sound, but looks the part as well.
