This spectacular version of Martin's popular D-42 features back and sides crafted of highly quilted solid bubinga joined to an Adirondack spruce top. Rare Brazilian rosewood is used extensively, including top binding headplate, heelcap, mitered and boxed end piece and fingerboard binding. The acoustic guitar's 1930-style belly bridge and fingerboard are carved from black ebony. Nut, saddle, and bridge pins are genuine bone. Select abalone pearl is hand-fitted in the traditional Style 42 inlay pattern, C.F. Martin block letter head stock inlay and snowflake fingerboard inlay. Gold, open-gear tuners with engraved buttons complete the design. Only 17 of these magnificent Martin instruments will be offered, each signed by Chris Martin.
