Martin OM-42, Indian Rosewood & Sitka Spruce - Pre-Owned


Sold Make an enquiry


The stylish design of Martin's 40 Series adds panache to the classic tone and feel of Indian rosewood back and sides, a Sitka spruce scalloped X-braced top, and hand-fit dovetail neck joint. Open geared tuners, antique white binding, polished gloss finish, a tortoise colored pickguard and abalone pearl inlay offer shimmer with exemplary tone. Long scale and a sleek modified low-oval neck with narrow taper mean strumming and picking for hours in comfort and bliss.

This pre-owned model from 2005 is in excellent condition, with no notable dings, scratches or fretwear, and the complex, open tone that you only get through years of playing. The seller did swap out the original gold tuners for nickel Martin tuners, but the original set are included in the case. A beauty on stage and in the recording studio!
