Product Description

One of the most visually stunning and distinct guitars made by Martin, the D-42 Purple Martin will be a true gem in any guitar collection! This is the third guitar crafted in the Purple Martin series, and gets an upgrade from 41 to 42 style appointments. The name ‘Purple Martin’ is inspired by a native bird from Pennsylvania of the same name. Known for being social, the Purple Martin is a fitting choice for this instrument and you’ll know why when you hear it sing!

In addition to the bird inlay on the fingerboard and pickguard, the guitar also features the Pennsylvania state flower, the Mountain Laurel by its side. The top is made from heavy bear claw Engelmann spruce and the back and sides are made from figured plum katalox. Other unique appointments on this limited edition model are Schaller Gold GrandTune open gear tuners and bone colored liquid metal bridge pins. The model is limited to just 50 guitars, all with a label signed by Chris Martin.
