The D-41 Special combines features of the standard D-41 model with those of the Vintage Series instruments, and adds a few lovely extras for good measure.
The forward shifted scalloped-braced sitka spruce top and mastergrade Indian rosewood back and sides is finished with a gloss nitrocellulose lacquer for an amazing open tone. Its pearl-bound top and neck inlays, gorgeous mix of trimmings and top-grade tone woods certainly makes the D-41 Special a particularly appealing Martin Dreadnought.
This consigned D-41 special has been lovingly owned by its owner and is as good as new apart from slight signs of use on it’s headplate. The tone has developed well and is easily one of the most impressive Martin guitar we have received this year. The sitka spruce and Indian rosewood chosen for this piece is also one of the finest we have ever seen.
