      Martin Custom D Classic Mahogany Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar (514700)
Availability:  


Most affordable spruce-top solid wood Martin ever, and only available here.

This Martin Custom D Classic Acoustic Guitar is the real deal and a real steal. Crafted with a solid Sitka spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides, the mahogany Custom D guitar also has a tortoise binding, modified low-oval mahogany neck with a mortise-and-tenon joint and adjustable truss rod. Solid Indian rosewood fingerboard and bridge, and inlaid single-ring rosette complete this Martin guitar. The mahogany body on the Custom D guitar is much lighter in weight than rosewood, koa, or maple and yields a surprisingly strong, loud sound with an emphasis on clear, bright, airy trebles. Quantities of this custom Martin acoustic guitar are limited. Includes case.

  • gets better every year

    As reviewed by john farnsworth on 5/27/2013

    I bought this guitar for selfish reasons, thinking that my performing days were over so I'd get the mahogany sound I preferred rather the rosewood sound you need to fill a room. The crazy thing is that I'm now performing again, and I'm blaming it on the guitar. It's such a pleasure to play, it seems a shame to keep it to myself. I've had Custom D for several years now, and the tone is substantially more lively now than when I first bought it. It took about six months to find the right strings for it; all the Martin strings were way too mellow for this guitar. I finally settled on D'Addario EJ15-3D and they match this guitar wonderfully, with a warm and bright tone. Someone else mentioned that this guitar is much more sensitive to strings than others, and I agree with that 100%. After I found the strings I wanted to use I took the guitar to a luthier to get the action tuned to these strings and to my playing style, and it was well worth the money. At this point the guitar seems to play itself. I love the smell of this guitar, which I'm sure is a function of the matte finish. After three years the neck is now glossy even though I've always washed my hands before playing. There's a little gloss forming where my arm comes down on the top of the body, and in a few places on the back. I guess this was inevitable, but I've resisted the temptation to polish the guitar because I'm sure the light finish has helped this Martin breathe much more than a glossy guitar. It took a while to get used to a non-glossy finish, but at this point I prefer it. (And I always keep a rag handy. This is a guitar that begs to be wiped down after every session.) I play with a couple other fellows who play Martins, and it's amazing how the guitars complement each other. One plays an 000-45, the other a D-28, and I was worried that those guitars would overshadow mine in terms of timbre, especially with the extra light strings I use, but this has not been the case. Even un-miked in a room with 30 people, it holds its own in the midst of the rosewood guitars, oven once a banjo is mixed in. One of the biggest differences between this guitar and any other guitar I've ever owned is how well it stays in tune, even after a rowdy set, or after sitting neglected for a week. It's always ready to go. I ended up selling my other guitars except for a travel guitar. Why play a guitar that doesn't make you sound as good, or isn't as pleasant to play?

  • Great touring guitar for the money

    As reviewed by Ray Lawrence Jr. on 3/2/2013

    I am an independent recording artist and touring musician. I have this model Martin and I bought mine used from Guitar Center. the first thing you are going to want to buy for this guitar is a hard shell case, a humidifier, a capo a tuner and couple sets of strings and a string winder and get some picks a strap and if you do not want to drill holes on your martin get the Martin leather piece with the strap button on it. All those things you will need because once you start playing you will not want to put it down. But when you do put it down you will want to put it in the case and put the humidifier in there if you live in a dry climate area. Consult your sales person for all the goodies they are the best and make sure you get these things. Also get a polishing cloth or 2 and if you are like me get some lem oil and don't be afraid to use it on the finger board and bridge. OK, now for the good stuff. I have a woody type pickup that I use but you can mic this guitar or have any number of pickups installed. If you are playing a bluegrass jam outside like do a lot, you will be in for a treat. This is one great sounding guitar and as it ages it will sound better. I play mine without a pickup and with a mic and sometimes that woody pickup. Either way it is a work horse. i recorded an album with this guitar and I have done lots of shows and videos with this guitar. I would have it set up before leaving the store unless you are able to do this your self but have it done. This guitar will sound as good as a high dollar Martin without the cost and it is made in the same factory too. Once you play one of these babies you will be in love with it. Worth every penny you pay for it. This model is my main guitar and I will have another one.

  • Great Guitar

    As reviewed by Craig Mackay on 4/12/2011

    I love the sound and the action of this guitar. Easy to play and great sound so I have been playing a lot more lately. It is great value and beautifully crafted instrument. The case is also excellent and substantial.
