D-42 MODERN DELUXE
The D-42 Modern Deluxe is a new take on Martin Vintage. This guitar is packed with custom features and modern technology that you have to see, feel, and hear for yourself. The vintage appointments include a spruce VINTAGE TONE SYSTEM® (VTS) top, a dovetail neck joint, and natural protein glue construction giving it the rich, fully aged Martin tone that has inspired generations. The look is unlike anything in our production line with European flamed maple binding (on the body, fingerboard, and headplate), stylish gold frets, gold open-gear tuners, and an ornate torch logo inlaid in pearl on the headstock. Some ultra-modern features include Liquidmetal® bridge pins with abalone dots and a composite carbon fiber bridgeplate that boosts volume, and a new neck shape that is slightly asymmetrical for maximum hand comfort up and down the fretboard. This guitar is anything but standard.
BALANCE YESTERDAY AND TODAY
You'll love the traditional appointments like maple binding, a dovetail neck joint, gold open-gear tuners, and elegant pearl inlay. The top is made using our Vintage Tone System® that ages the wood to reproduce the sound and beauty of a century-old Martin. Enjoy modern touches like a carbon fiber bridge plate for boosting volume and a Vintage Deluxe Neck for comfort. Whether you're playing on stage or in a studio, you'll sound amazing. Modern Deluxe guitars offer the best of the past century with the best of today.
