Martin

Increased power, sustain and volume in a design that harkens back to classic Martins of the stagecoach era.

This "00" 12-fret guitar boasts solid cocobolo sides, back and headplate, a solid sitka spruce top, gorgeous "42" style appointments, and is inspired by the 00-45SC built in collaboration with John Mayer in 2012. The "SC" stands for stagecoach, harkening back to an era when guitars were taken on trains, wagons, and horses for bringing people together in song. Other accouterments include grained ivoroid binding on the endpiece, solid black ebony pyramid with drop-in saddle bridge, Waverly brass open-geared with small ivoroid button tuning machines, a Delmar tortoise color pickguard, and a polished gloss finish. The interior label is signed by the Grammy Award-winning artist. Comes with a custom case.

Comments about Martin 00-42SC John Mayer Acoustic Guitar:

Sounds amazing, plays like you wouldnt believe. My only problems are that it might be a little small for some people. I mean it is a stage coach but its size might not be for everyone. Also its way overpriced. I think that if Martin had made this same guitar and left out all the cool inlays and sold it for 3 or 4 thousand, everyone would buy it. But not at this price.
