D-28 Marquis Madagascar
Like the OM-28 Marquis Madagascar model, this premium Dreadnought guitar is crafted with pre-war Golden Era® appointments and tonewoods that include Adirondack red spruce for the soundboard and genuine black ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. The only exception is that the Brazilian sides, back and headplate typically seen on rosewood Golden Era® models are replaced with select Madagascar rosewood. Prized for its tone and beauty, Madagascar rosewood — selected for the back, sides and headplate — shares attributes that are analogous to Brazilian rosewood.
D-42 Cambodian Rosewood
The D-42 Cambodian Rosewood NAMM Show Special features Cambodian rosewood for the two-piece back, sides and headplate, an Adirondack spruce soundboard, gold-plated open-geared Gotoh tuning machines with vintage “X coating,” and a 1930s style ebony belly bridge. Like Madagascar and Amazon rosewoods, Cambodian rosewood is comparable in both beauty and tone to Brazilian rosewood. Limited to no more than 30 unique instruments, orders will only be accepted from Martin dealers in attendance at the Austin NAMM Show.
