Martin Standard Series Acoustic Guitars


collapse expand iconDescription

The Martin D-41 Standard dreadnought acoustic guitar combines the coveted tone of 1930s Martins with today's ergonomic design. Since 1969, the D-41 has delivered a bold, punchy sound prized by professionals. Now, modified bracing and a slim neck provide exceptional clarity and comfort. Own a piece of acoustic history with this expertly crafted instrument.

Forward-Shifted Bracing Channels Iconic Tone

The D-41 Standard's forward-shifted, scalloped X-bracing harnesses the resonant power of solid spruce and rosewood. Like Martins from the '30s, it produces articulate highs, rich lows and a commanding midrange presence suited to any musical style. An ideal guitar for the stage and studio, the D-41 cuts through mixes with the familiar Martin voice that has shaped the sound of American music.

Fast, Low-Profile Neck Maximizes Playability

While the D-41 Standard echoes vintage Martins, its modified low-oval neck and 1-3/4" nut provide modern playability. The slim, tapered profile allows effortless movement across the ebony fingerboard's 20 frets. Whether fingerpicking complex chords or soloing at higher positions, the D-41 plays fast and feels familiar to any guitarist.

Premium Appointments and Timeless Style

As an heirloom-quality instrument, the D-41 Standard exhibits exquisite craftsmanship. Bookmatched East Indian rosewood back and sides, an antique white binding, and a hand-rubbed aging toner finish give it a refined vintage esthetic. Open-gear tuners, a dovetail neck joint and bone nut and saddle also demonstrate Martin's commitment to traditional quality and tone.

Includes Protective Hard Case

Martin includes a hardshell case to properly safeguard your investment. With a plush interior and rugged exterior, the case shields the guitar from environmental damage and physical impact. A fitted compartment accommodates accessories, keeping everything organized for transport and storage.
