The guitar pictured is the actual guitar you will receive!At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.
This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your guitar was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without care.This Dreadnought acoustic guitar features a Sitka Spruce top that has been printed with a custom illustration by fine artist, Robert Goetzl, inspired by Prop 64 in California.
The D-420 is crafted with Mah back and sides, a modified low oval neck with high performance taper, simple dovetail neck joint, bone nut and saddle, Ebony bridge and an Ebony fretboard with Mother-of-Pearl inlays. A great sounding, unique looking guitar that has a rich, clean and articulate tone with great sustain and clarity.The paper label is signed by CFM IV and Robert Goetzl. Comes with Martin hardshell case. Martin’s uncompromising workmanship and attention to detail mean this isn’t just a work of art - it’s a finely crafted instrument you’ll cherish for years to come.
Martin Guitar has been Pleking their instruments for close to a decade and believe this process helps maintain the undeniable Martin guitar sound that is recognizable worldwide. A Martin guitar with optimized playability enhances the tone of their guitars, as it prevents the strings from buzzing on the frets during playing and eliminates intonation problems that may occur due to inaccurate nut height. Nothing should come between your playability and that iconic Martin tone. This remains their longstanding commitment to all guitar players worldwide.What is Plek®?
The Plek® Pro has been developed for use in guitar production factories as a tool that not only does precise fret dressing, but also helps with quality control and R&D. This computer controlled device scans and dresses a guitar under actual playing conditions, strung and tuned to pitch or using precise string tension emulation. This is a major breakthrough since the Plek® Pro identifies precisely what needs to be done for perfect fretwork, executes this rapidly, and delivers perfect results on the instrument when strung.
The Plek® Pro speeds up the production process and raises the quality of instruments to an extremely high and consistent level.
