Distinct tone from exotic muninga wood.
Muninga is a rich, exotic wood found in various regions of Africa. The Martin D Muninga 08 Dreadnought, a limited edition of only 17 acoustic guitars, features Forest Stewardship Council-certified Muninga back and sides, a certified 4-piece Adirondack spruce top and forward-shifted 5/16" scalloped X braces in the Golden Era style. Katalox, another fine tonewood, is used for the first time by Martin to fashion a 1930s style belly bridge with glued-in long saddle. Vintage-style grained ivoroid is used for binding as well as unique diamond & square inlays on the katalox fingerboard. Bone is used to fabricate the guitar's nut, saddle, and bridge pins. With old-style cloth reinforcement strips, Gotoh open-geared tuners with butterbean knobs, and a 1935-era sunburst finish, this special Martin D 000 acoustic guitar is as beautiful and distinctive visually as it is tonally.
