The Martin D-41 was introduced in 1969 to fill a hole in the Martin line between the D-35 and D-45. Back in 1969, musicians were asking for a Martin guitar that had all the “glitz” from the front of the guitar, as they wanted to have the audience see the “shine” from the stage; however, they didn’t want to pay for the pearl on the sides and back. At that point in history, the D-45 was the only dreadnought guitar with pearl. Its $1,200 price tag was a bit much for most musicians, so the Martin Guitar Company decided to offer a pearl guitar that would have the look of a D-45 from stage, but without the extra pearl on the back and sides. Coming in with a price tag of $800, the D-41 was just what players were requesting. The lower price, great sound, and optimal amount of pearl made the D-41 the perfect instrument for the professional/touring musician.
Martin D-41 Standard Acoustic Guitar with Golden Era ToneBack in 1969, Martin dreadnoughts didn’t have the option of a vintage forward-shifted scalloped X bracing pattern. That was reserved for Martin’s “Golden Era” dreadnought guitars from the 1930s. Martin’s dreadnought guitars from 1931 to 1939 are arguably the most prized, sought-after guitars in the world. One main reason is the bracing pattern. Manufactured from 1931 to 1939, Martin dreadnoughts, such as the D-18, D-28, and D-45 had a forwarded-shifted, scalloped X bracing pattern. This “Golden Era” bracing pattern gave the Martin dreadnought guitars a unique and identifiable tone. Highly valued for the clarity on the high end, and a punchy, defined bass, musicians and collectors soon realized that these instruments were unique and extremely collectible. No other acoustic guitar had the Martin tone, and as a result everyone wanted one.
Vintage Sound Meets Modern Playability on this Martin D-41 Standard GuitarToday, you can get that vintage tone of the 1930s combined with the playability of a modern guitar. Martin has added the vintage forward-shifted scalloped X bracing pattern to this D-41 Standard Dreadnought acoustic to give you their most treasured tone. And to accompany the improved sound, the playability has been dramatically improved.
The D-41 Standard Dreadnought's neck has been changed to feature a modern, modified low-oval neck, with a Performing Artist taper and 1-3/4” nut. The wider string spacing and comfortable neck profile allow a player to move up and down the neck with ease. The D-41 Standard Dreadnought sounds vintage and is effortless to play.
