000-42
(Click for a close-up)

Identical in specification to the D-42, this new addition to Martin's Standard Series stock models provides an elegant high-end shortscaled instrument that is equally ideal for expressive blues or fingerstyle playing in either a performance or recording setting.

The 000-42 includes an ebony fingerboard inlaid with the Style 45 snowflake pattern, a Style 45 headstock inlaid with C. F. Martin block letters, vintage-styled gold butterbean tuners, and St yle 42 abalone inlaid top bordering. The tone is enhanced with scalloped bracing, and the neck features Martin's modified V-shape.

List Price $5449.00.
