The Martin David Bromberg Signature Edition pays tribute to the origin of the M guitars.
The Martin M-42 David Bromberg Signature Edition Acoustic Guitar boasts solid premium tonewoods throughout. Features a rare -- especially in this width -- Italian alpine spruce top. Back and sides are of East Indian rosewood. A low profile neck of genuine mahogany and fingerboard and bridge of African black ebony complete the guitar. Forward-shifted and scalloped 5/16" top braces provide impressive clarity and dynamic range.
Style 45 appointments abound on this handsome instrument. Style 45 abalone pearl inlay around the top and fingerboard extension are matched by the abalone pearl Style 45 rosette. A Style 45 multicolored mosaic backstrip divides the two-piece back. Bridge pins and endpin both also are Style 45, with abalone dot inlays.
In keeping with the archtop features on Bromberg's original guitar, the M-42 David Bromberg Signature Edition's East Indian rosewood headplate bears a 1930s style "C. F. Martin" block letter inlay in abalone pearl and goldplated enclosed tuners with large gold knobs. Style 45 snowflake position markers are centered between F-9 Style white/black/white "racing stripe" inlays that run the length of the fingerboard. David Bromberg's signature is inlaid between the 19th and 20th frets.
Classic grained ivoroid binding and elegantly mitered black/white purfling are everywhere on this guitar: top, sides, back, headstock and fingerboard. The grained ivoroid end piece and heelcap display matching fine line inlays. The guitar is finished in polished gloss lacquer, with aging toner on the top to enhance the vintage vibe. A polished and beveled tortoise-color pickguard protects the top. Delivered in a vintage-inspired Geib style case, each M-42 David Bromberg Signature Edition guitar bears an interior label personally signed by David Bromberg and Martin Chairman C. F. Martin IV and is numbered in sequence together with the edition total.
