We're sorry-this item is unavailable.
Classic D-14 body adorned with an attractive fingerboard and pickguard inlay motif inspired by the largest American swallow it's named after.
The purple martin is the largest North American swallow and produces sounds that have been described as œthroaty and rich, much like the limited edition guitar that bears its name. A favorite theme of CEO & Chairman Chris Martin, this 2015 version is the second in a series of Purple Martin Limited Editions. The black pickguard as well as the ebony fingerboard and bridge are all inlaid with a dramatic Purple Martin motif.
Features include richly colored cocobolo back, sides, and headplate, a premium grade Adirondack spruce soundboard with scalloped 5/16 width Martin X-bracing, and Style 41 inlay around the perimeter of the top and circumference of the rosette. With no more than 50 produced, each D-41 Purple Martin will bear an interior label personally signed by C. F. Martin IV and numbered in sequence with the edition total. Includes case.
