The D41 is not just any dreadnought. It is an heirloom and a tangible result of the passion and craftsmanship that goes into creating Martin guitars. It distinguishes itself from the standard Martin’s by the beautiful and luxurious edge inlays and hexagonal fingerboard inlays of abalone. In addition, this Martin also has gold-colored hardware that completes the exceptional appearance.
The guitar has a beautiful Indian rosewood back and sides and a Sitka spruce top with a nice narrow grain. The mahogany neck features an ebony fingerboard with hexagonal abalone inlays and ends at the rosewood headstock overlay where the beautiful abalone inlaid “C.F. Martin” logo can be found.
This Martin D41 from 1972 is still in good condition. The guitar has recently undergone an extensive restoration during which a lot of work has been done to the guitar, of which the neck reset and refret are the most notable. Furthermore, the bridge, nut and pickguard have been replaced, and the guitar has been given an overspray. There are also two repaired cracks on the top.
The D41 still has the original bridge pins and Grover Rotomatic tuners. The guitar plays very nicely and has the sound that makes vintage Martins so popular among collectors and guitarists. The guitar comes in a vintage Martin hardshell case.
