Most affordable spruce-top solid wood Martin ever, and only available here!

This American-made, Martin Custom D Classic Mahogany Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar is the real deal and a real steal. Made in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, this amazing instrument is crafted with a solid Sitka spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides. Like many of Martin’s famous dreadnought guitars, the Custom D Classic Mahogany Dreadnought has all the punch and volume that players have come to expect from the world-famous Martin Guitar Co. The combination of Sitka spruce and mahogany back and sides generates a tone with expressive highs and mid-range frequencies; plus, a loud, punchy bottom end. Along with a great tone, this guitar has amazing sustain and dynamic response.

Made in Nazareth, PA, the Custom D is equipped with a simple dovetail neck joint. This glued, neck-to-body joint allows the neck and body of the guitar to resonate as one instrument. Like many of the world’s finest string instruments, the dovetail does not have any bolts that limit sustain and change the color of the acoustic sound. The tight fit increases the transference of tone and sustain across the entire instrument. Play as soft, or as hard as you want, and this instrument has got you covered. This versatile guitar can handle just about any musical style, from bluegrass to rock, and anything in between. And, best of all, the Custom D is an awesome complement to the human voice. Whether you are on tour, playing a coffeehouse gig, or just jamming with your friends, the Martin Custom D Classic Mahogany Dreadnought will be everything you had hoped for in an acoustic guitar.

Playability

With playability a must for students and working musicians, the Custom D Classic Mahogany Dreadnought features a very comfortable modified low oval neck. Each Custom D Classic Mahogany Dreadnought receives a computerized Plek setup for the most accurate action possible.  

Pick up one of these beauties, and you will not be disappointed!

    Comments about Martin Custom D Classic Mahogany Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    This is a beautiful guitar inside out. Possibly the best value in. Spruce Mahogany genuine USA wood guitar. This guitar is ultra light and its powerful sound demands respect. The finish is plain and looks awesome. No lacquer and my opinion makes for more genuine acoustic sound. The case they send is decent but I think foreign made and makes you think the guitar is heavy. I got a gator case when I quickly realized that this case can't handle my environment, busking, being in hurry..... The gator is American. I changed the plastic pins to bone and this guitar is just awesome.

      Awesome Guitar for the Money!!!!!

      By 

      from Tennessee

      Comments about Martin Custom D Classic Mahogany Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      I recently purchased this guitar from Music123 based on a few factors including price, legendary Martin quality and sound, and other reviews around the web. I couldn't be more pleased! I currently own an older D-28 along with a few low-end Martins including an X Series 12-string and a couple little Martins for the kids. Because (I have to admit) I worry about tearing up the D-28, I wanted something much less expensive that I could haul around and not stress over as much. Getting a Martin was a given, and I really wanted something fully wood that was also made in the good ole USA. I considered a different style, but eventually came back around to the dreadnought style that I am comfortable with. After looking far and wide across the net, I ended up on on this website with two to choose from - the Martin Custom D Classic Mahogany and the Martin Custom D Classic Rosewood. I chose the Mahogany because a) it was $100 less expensive, and b) my D-28 is rosewood and I wanted to try a different wood. I am really glad I went with the Mahogany. This guitar simply sounds great! It is very basic (which is fine with me), and is extremely playable. It weighs less than any other guitar I have (aside from the little Martins), but has an extremely full sound. When I first opened the case, the smell of the guitar reminded me of Christmas (and still does). I plan to have the saddle and bridge pins change out to bone just to see what see will really do. Sweet guitar for flat-picking, finger-picking, and just strumming - it really fills up a room. Thanks again Martin for another quality product!!

      A great Martin

      By 

      from Mt. Marion NY

      Comments about Martin Custom D Classic Mahogany Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      I bought this guitar a few weeks ago and as usual with all the Martins I have owned this guitar did not disappoint. The sound is great and so is the very playable neck. Guitar is amazingly light but very loud. Only problem that I see that might cause concern with some people is the grain of the mahogany top has some unusual patterns. However I find it unique and makes my guitar one of a kind. Great value for a solid top Martin. You cannot go wrong.
