What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good

Making use of Martin's VTS (Vintage Tone System) torrefaction process, this handsomely appointed dread has the sort of broken-in sound and feel you might imagine from an instrument 10 or 20 times its age! And you won't believe how truly delicate and beautiful the appointments are in-hand. Flamed Mahogany binding, a unique and elegant Cocobolo back inlay, and Abalone bindings and rosette really set off the simple beauty of Sitka and East Indian Rosewood!

SP Luthier Notes: Fret dress and setup

Manufacturer's Description from Martin

A 14 fret, non-cutaway Dreadnought, the CS-D41-15 features a Sitka spruce top with Martin’s new Vintage Tone System (VTS). The East Indian rosewood back and sides beautifully showcase a unique ribbon inlay of cocobolo and flamed mahogany. This enticing inlay design is further enhanced with mother-of-pearl against an ebony background throughout the headplate and fingerboard. Flamed mahogany binding visually completes the CS-D41-15, making this limited edition model one that is both beautiful to the beholder and pleasing to the ear. Limited to a quantity of 115.

About Manufacturer

For well over a century and a half, The Martin Guitar Company has been continuously producing acoustic instruments that are acknowledged to be the finest in the world. The Martin Guitar Company has, through the years, managed to survive with each succeeding generation from C. F. Martin, Sr.?s Stauffer influenced creations of the 1830s to recent developments introduced by C. F. Martin IV. Continuous operation under family management is a feat bordering on the remarkable, reflecting six generations of dedication to the guitarmaker?s craft. In or out of the music industry, C. F. Martin has few rivals for sheer staying power. Throughout its colorful history, the company has adapted successfully to continual changes in product design, distribution systems, and manufacturing methods. In spite of the many changes, C. F. Martin has never veered away from its initial commitment to quality. The concern for producing the finest instruments possible in 1833 is especially evident today at Martin?s expanded facility in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. The story behind one of America?s most famous guitars began on January 31, 1796, in Markneukirchen, Germany, with the birth of Christian Frederick Martin, Sr. Born into a long line of cabinet makers, Christian Frederick took up the family craft at the early age of 15, when he left his hometown and traveled to Vienna to apprentice with Johann Stauffer, a renowned guitar maker.
