Overview

The purple martin is the largest North American swallow and produces sounds that have been described as œthroaty and rich, much like the limited edition guitar that bears its name. A favorite theme of CEO & Chairman Chris Martin, this 2015 version is the second in a series of Purple Martin Limited Editions. The black pickguard as well as the ebony fingerboard and bridge are all inlaid with a dramatic Purple Martin motif.

Features include richly colored cocobolo back, sides, and headplate, a premium grade Adirondack spruce soundboard with scalloped 5/16 width Martin X-bracing, and Style 41 inlay around the perimeter of the top and circumference of the rosette. With no more than 50 produced, each D-41 Purple Martin will bear an interior label personally signed by C. F. Martin IV and numbered in sequence with the edition total. Includes case.
