Debuting in 1969m the gorgeous Martin D-41 dreadnought boasts a solid spruce top that is hand-joined to lustrous rosewood back and sides. Abalone inlays in the rosette and ebony fret board, combined with full binding and gold hardware. Among the other characteristics the D-41 shares with the rest of the Martin standard dreadnoughts are the high quality ebony fingerboard, the 1 11/16 neck width at the nut, and the 25.4 inch scale length and a high quality gloss finish.
The D-41 has a multi-ring rosette, at the center of which is a beautiful ring of abalone pearl. The spruce top is also completely surrounded by abalone inlay, just inside the white binding. If you perform on this guitar, the lights will catch the abalone and send vivid reflections out into the audience.
It sounds big. The D-41 has the classic Martin dreadnought sound in spades. It has that big Martin bass, a slightly recessed upper midrange, and clean, clear highs. It is a loud and responsive guitar.
