This 2014 Martin D-41 dreadnaught has an exceptional Indian Rosewood sides and back. This guitar has a nice Ebony fingerboard and bridge, and plays and sounds superb. This guitar is a perfect example of why the D-41 has continued to be one of the most popular and well built guitars in the world. It is responsive to a light right hand attack; yielding a smooth sustain even at lower volumes. On the flip side, it has power and volume that will impress any heavy flat picker. The low end is full without getting mushy, while the note attack is clear and precise enough to cut through any group of instruments.
