A classic Martin dreadnought with solid spruce top and sapele back and sides.

The Martin Special D All Solid Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar offers musicians a lifetime of rich, expressive tone and nuanced voicing. Handcrafted from solid Sitka spruce and sapele, its all-solid-wood construction resonates with a bold yet balanced character. Punchy lows, shimmering highs and a throaty midrange coalesce into a versatile voice suited for any genre. Plug in or play unplugged—in coffee shops, bars or on arena stages, the Special D cuts through with clarity and warmth.

All-Solid-Wood Construction Sings With Depth and Nuance

The Special D's all-solid-wood construction—with a Sitka spruce top and sapele back and sides—imbues its tone with depth, nuance and resonance. Sitka spruce's tight, straight grain produces crisp articulation and shimmering highs. Sapele lends midrange punch and low-end warmth. Together, they generate a balanced voice with expressive dynamics ready to serve emotive fingerpicking or vigorous strumming.

Mortis and Tenon Neck Joint Maximizes Sustain

The Special D's mortis and tenon neck joint fuses neck and body into a single, resonant instrument. Its tight fit and wood-on-wood construction transfer vibrations freely, maximizing sustain and unleashing the Special D's full tonal potential. Play soft or hard—this dreadnought responds with equal vigor and warmth.

Versatile Design Meets any Challenge

With its bold yet balanced voice, the Special D All Solid Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar adapts to any musical style or performance setting. Strum breezy country ballads, pick intricate folk melodies or pound out driving rock rhythms—the Special D responds with resonance and clarity. And thanks to premium components selected for road-readiness, this lifetime partner travels from bedroom to barroom to arena with ease.
