Guitar Gallery has the widest selection of Martin guitars in South Africa and we have this beautiful pre-owned Martin D-42 Sinker Mahogany in stock.  This guitar has been inspected and the setup performed by Casimi guitars to ensure optimum tone and playability.

This Martin D-42 features rare sinker mahogany for the back and sides with a solid Adirondack spruce top. Sinker mahogany comes from recently recovered South American first growth trees that were logged then lost underwater for over 100 years. It's an extra dense wood with a tight grain and excellent color. The neck is solid mahogany with a modified V shape and solid ebony fingerboard. Intricate boltaron and abalone inlays run the length of this special guitar.
