Top Choice Tone Woods and Timeless Craftsmanship
The Martin Dreadnought's solid Sitka spruce top and solid East Indian rosewood back and sides will resonate your playing like no other guitar. You get a warm and rich sound that will hug any listener within earshot of your strumming. The spruce top is held to the East Indian rosewood sides and the two-piece back by the Dreadnought's unique bracing in a secure configuration that won't interrupt resonation. The smooth full bound rosette and ebony fretboard is adorned with beautiful polychrome abalone inlays -- giving your D-41 a stunning look and a comfortable feel that's smooth to the touch.
Ultimate Sustain and Attractive Hardware
The D-41's solid East Indian rosewood head plate holds your strings with eye-catching Schaller gold tuners atop a bone nut. Securing down the tension is a solid black ebony bridge that holds your notes in anticipatory sustain. The close action of your strings will hug the fretboard nicely, providing optimal playability and comfort. Play this baby once and you'll instantly hear the clarity and feel the longevity of the sustain -- a rich tone that rings artfully.
Versatile Sound True to the Player
If you're a jazz player, your D-41 will sound Jazzy. If you're into blues, your D-41 will resonate the blues. If you're a country player, then, you guessed it, you'll get a true country sound -- twang and all. The Martin D-41 Dreadnought really dresses its sound in the particular style of its player; its clarity and richness makes it ideal for just about any acoustic-guitar gig you can imagine.
Martin Setting the Standard
C.F. Martin & Company has been setting the standard for acoustic guitars since 1833, and after almost 200 years of superior craftsmanship, the Martin name is seen on the guitars of many musicians in many different genres from country to blues, rock, jazz, bluegrass, and others. The dreadnought series came into play during the early 1930s and set itself apart by its deeper and larger body size compared to other acoustic guitars of the time. This style was soon followed by the industry and the Martin Dreadnought body soon became the standard acoustic guitar body that proliferated and is still seen today. This guitar has been, and continues to be, a true trendsetter.
