Martin 000-42 Authentic 1939 Acoustic Guitar, Vintage 2016
  • Madagascar Rosewood and Adirondack Spruce
  • Accurate Repro of Eric Clapton's 1939 000-42
  • Torrified Spruce
  • All Hide Glue

Product Description

Supposedly a prototype (one of the first five of the model), out of Madagascar rosewood and Adirondack spruce, in mint as-new condition. The "Authentic" line is Martin's latest and truest paean to the greatness of their early years, with such details as using their finest materials, keeping the construction light weight (pre-war specs), using hide glue, and using their version of the torrification process on the spruce. The 000-42 Authentic 1939 is a recreation of Eric Clapton's '39 000-42 made famous in his Unplugged concert. Itys tone is amazing - like a prize from a time machine visit to the golden age of acoustic guitars.
