The D-41 dreadnought, first introduced in 1969, is an important installment in Martin's 185-year legacy as one of America's most celebrated instrument makers. It has been favorably compared to the venerable D-45 — though only slightly less decorated.
The latest D-41 retains the big, bold tone of previous generations, but substitutes a slimmer High Performance Taper neck for even greater playability, along with Forward Shifted X Bracing for greater bass. Its tone remains one of the most recognizable voices in American music history. Vintage-styled visuals and appointments, including an aged toner finish and open-gear tuners, give this D-41 an heirloom look.
