Overview

This American-made, Martin Custom D Classic Mahogany Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar is the real deal and a real steal. Made in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, this amazing instrument is crafted with a solid Sitka spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides. Like many of Martin’s famous dreadnought guitars, the Custom D Classic Mahogany Dreadnought has all the punch and volume that players have come to expect from the world-famous Martin Guitar Co. The combination of Sitka spruce and mahogany back and sides generates a tone with expressive highs and mid-range frequencies; plus, a loud, punchy bottom end. Along with a great tone, this guitar has amazing sustain and dynamic response.

Made in Nazareth, PA, the Custom D is equipped with a simple dovetail neck joint. This glued, neck-to-body joint allows the neck and body of the guitar to resonate as one instrument. Like many of the world’s finest string instruments, the dovetail does not have any bolts that limit sustain and change the color of the acoustic sound. The tight fit increases the transference of tone and sustain across the entire instrument. Play as soft, or as hard as you want, and this instrument has got you covered. This versatile guitar can handle just about any musical style, from bluegrass to rock, and anything in between. And, best of all, the Custom D is an awesome complement to the human voice. Whether you are on tour, playing a coffeehouse gig, or just jamming with your friends, the Martin Custom D Classic Mahogany Dreadnought will be everything you had hoped for in an acoustic guitar.

Playability

With playability a must for students and working musicians, the Custom D Classic Mahogany Dreadnought features a very comfortable modified low oval neck. Each Custom D Classic Mahogany Dreadnought receives a computerized Plek setup for the most accurate action possible.  

Pick up one of these beauties, and you will not be disappointed!

My son Jesse bought the Martin D-15 Custom for me. It is made of solid mahogany sides and back and a solid spruce top. To look at it it is handsomely plain but when you pick it up and play it there is nothing plain about it. The playability and tone are the best I have ever had the pleasure to experience in a guitar. It resonates pure distint tones from base to tenor that blend together with a beautiful fullness. I use to play an Alverez Yari classical guitar and now I only play my Martin. I paired it up with the Marquis Chestnut guitar strap. I find it hard to put it away in my Martin guitar case. I wish I could play it all day long. My Martin D-15 trio is by far the most wonderful gift I have ever had the honor of receiving. Thank you Jesse and the Martin Guitar Company.

Comments about Martin Custom D Classic Mahogany Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

The guitar is beautiful.... feather weight... plays great... and has "that voice" that I have waited a long time for. Makes all my former acoustic guitars pale in comparison. I actually prefer the plain look of it to the high gloss and fancy appointed guitars. I wish they would offer this with good built in electronics, because I want to amplify it eventually. The guitar is actually a 5 star instrument, but it has some subtle string buzzz on the lower three strings. I will see if this can be easily remedied or not. I do not want to have to give up any of the nice action. It may turn out that I will have to send this one back.... I hope not..but it remains to be seen. The case feels like a tank... and is very attractive. I love the guitar, it is everything I had hoped and had been waiting for. As for the little buzz... we'll see.

      Comments about Martin Custom D Classic Mahogany Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      I was very dissapointed with the sound quality when I took it out of the box. It felt really good to me so I spent extra time playing it and comparing to my other guitar, but even after a month I was thinking about returning it. As the 45 day trail period was coming to an end I was still a little leery but decided to keep it. Now, after 2 1/2 months, it sounds great and the playability is excellent.I am very glad I bought it. I have been playing as a hobby for more than 50 years and enjoy playing the Martin Custom D so much I am playing more often and I'm improving more than I have in a many years. I guess the moral of the story is take the full 45 day trail period if you are undecided at the beginning.

              This is a wonderful, back-to-basics guitar. Martin has awakened to the reality of today's international guitar market and responded well. This guitar is only a few days old and yet sounds and sustains beautifully. I look forward to it's sound when it "opens up" in a few years! Its gonna be a MONSTER!

              Great guitar, great value

                      I have a deeper knowledge of electric guitars, but I love this baby. The action is fluid and precise, the mahogany/spruce combination produces a nice mixture of warmth and brightness. And it's loud, with a full-bodied sound. (Oh, and by the way, it comes with a nice Martin case). I haven't spent a lot of time around high-end Martins and such, so perhaps I'm not as sophisticated (or snooty!) as others. But for under a grand, Martin has offered players like me something I never thought I'd possess--a dreadnought guitar that plays and sounds like a Martin; one that will impress anyone who appreciates a quality instrument (I promise you). If this is your price range and you're on the cusp, take the plunge. Like another reviewer, I bought my direct from the factory--just trusted in the Martin name and the other reviews. They did not disappoint. Right out of the box it blew me away. Just knocked me out. I had just purchased a Fender American Standard Limited Edition Stratocaster with a solid rosewood neck a few days earlier. I was totally digging that guitar (and it's a beauty) when the Martin arrived. Now it's sitting in a corner collecting dust because I can't put this baby down. She's my gal and I'm in love.
