The ornate design and flash of the 42 Series adds panache to the classic tone of East Indian rosewood back and sides, a Sitka spruce scalloped X-braced top, and hand-fit dovetail neck joint. Open geared tuners, antique white binding, polished gloss finish and abalone pearl top inlay offers exquisite style with complex tone. Short scale and a sleek modified low-oval neck with narrow taper mean strumming and picking for hours in comfort and bliss.

The reimagined Standard Series is collectively the most significant update that Martin have made to their flagship line of guitars during their 185-year history.

The updates on these guitars include a new, thinner, high performance neck with a focus on comfort, vintage styled appointments such as open gear tuners and an old style logo, an aging toner and an array on internal tweaks including scalloped bracing for that traditional Martin tone.

Reimagined, refined, remarkable. Martins Standard Series offers a model for every style of player, from hobbyist to mega star. Experience the finely-tuned instruments that will shape your sound to an even higher standard of tone, look, and playability. Choose from a selection of exciting new models, with additional options including sunburst, ambertone, and state of the art electronics by Fishman and LR Baggs.  Mindful evolution has kept Martin at the top of the class for 185 years, remaining the standard by which all others are measured. Join the family and take the legacy into your hands.

From styles 28 to 45, Standard Series models have been the guitars of choice for famous players such as Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Tom Petty, Hank Williams, Joni Mitchell, Kurt Cobain, Beck, Eric Clapton, and countless others. Theyve been woven into the very fabric of our history for generations and across all genres of pop culture, and continue to inspire musicians worldwide.

"I challenged my co-workers to help me with the significant task of modernising guitars whose origin go back to the 1930s (and earlier). As you might imagine, the discussions were quite animated. Fortunately, we all knew we were working towards a common goal; how can we modernise traditional Martin Guitar models while continuing to honour our rich history and heritage? Well, together we met that challenge head on and the results far exceeded my expectations." - Chris Martin
