A good video courtesy of Fly Music China finally came up so here we take a look at the Martin D-420 that was announced earlier this year at the NAMM Show.
The D-420 shares very similar specs to the venerable D-18. It’s bread and butter, tried and tested Sitka spruce top mahogany dreadnought.
What stands out here is the illustration by Robert Goetzl which is printed on the soundboard. The grizzly bear under the bridge area looks rather cute. 🙂
