Perfect symbiosis of traditional and modern guitar craftsmanship

The Martin 000-42 Modern Deluxe is a perfect symbiosis of traditional and modern guitar craftsmanship. The time-honored features, in addition to the classic appearance, include the Dovetail neck joint and the protein glue used to bring the construction together. The modern components, on the other hand, are the liquid metal bridge pins, a carbon fiber bridgeplate and, last but not least, the innovative Vintage Deluxe neck profile that offers the player an extremely high playability. The fully solid guitar also produces a mid-range rich sound with crisp bass and assertive treble frequencies thanks to its medium 000-14 fret design. In addition, the fingerboard has plenty of room so that even complex fingering patterns can be easily mastered. Smooth tuners are set into the characteristic headstock for easy tuning of the 6 steel strings. Another highlight are the gold-plated fretsticks, which give the overall appearance of the Martin 000-42 Modern Deluxe a particularly high-quality touch. The guitar comes including case.

In the Modern Deluxe series from Martin & Co. modern and traditional features are combined

Construction and woods

Since the Sitka spruce top is treated with the special Vintage Tone system, the instrument gives the impression of having been played for years. Especially the middle frequency ranges stand out clearly and distinctly, so that the instrument can be used extremely well for expressive Pickings. Rosewood back and sides additionally enrich the tone with warm bass frequencies, thus providing a very balanced sound overall. The flat scalloped X-bracing, in combination with the ultra-thin high-gloss finish, also allows for a very nearly attack and a long decay of the individual notes. The mahogany neck is equipped with an ebony fingerboard that is comfortable to use.

Hardware and design

Since the compensated bridge inlay and the 44.45 mm wide nut are made of bone, the strings intonate perfectly on the shortened 632 mm scale length. At the same time, the noble, gold-plated open-gear tuners ensure a very precise tuning of the instrument. Matching the tuners, the fretsticks are also gold-plated. The top is surrounded by a fine figured maple binding with abalone inlay, which is visually very tastefully matched to the multi-stripe soundhole rosette. The extensive Torch inlay and the filigree "Style 45 Snowflake" fingerboard inlays made of mother-of-pearl complete the exterior in a very aesthetic way.
