Gorgeous Heirloom Dreadnought Brings Craftsmanship and Quality to the Forefront
The Martin Standard Series guitars set the industry standard in craftsmanship, with premium tonewoods and industry-leading build quality. The Standard Series guitars all feature classic tonewood combinations including Sitka Spruce tops and Rosewood or Mahogany back and sides, giving all of the Standard Series models that iconic Martin tone, with all of the bass and volume you’d ever need.
The left handed D-41 Standard Series Acoustic guitar from Martin features a solid Sitka Spruce top with aged toner finish and East Indian Rosewood back and sides, with scalloped, forward-shifted Sitka Spruce X-bracing to deliver the big, bold tone of a Dreadnought with shimmering treble tones. The forward shifted bracing actually enhances the bass tones, giving this lefty D-41 that thunderous quality you’d expect from a Martin Dreadnought.
To enhance playability, Martin has given the latest version of the D-41 a select hardwood neck with a modified low oval profile and a high performance taper, making it super comfortable to play. With a light satin finish on the back of the neck, you’ll find your fingers flying across the 20-fret ebony plek-dressed fretboard as if it were an electric! But don’t worry, the new high performance taper neck does not change the D-41‘s classic Dreadnought strum in any way.
In the D-41 Martin has brought the kind of high end craftsmanship and luxurious appointments that you’d expect from their best instruments. Not only does this gorgeous Dreadnought boast a solid Spruce top that is hand-joined to lustrous Rosewood back and sides, it also features abalone inlays in the rosette and on the ebony fretboard, a full antique white binding, an all bone nut and saddle and gold hardware, making this lefty D-41 as sumptuous to gaze upon as it is to play.
