Cocobolo offers shimmering tones that are full of character. The Martin Custom Shop D-14 Cocobolo delivers the amazing warmth of Martin Guitars with the clarity and overtones of Cocobolo. Matched perfectly with a High Altitude Swiss Spruce (European, Certified), this guitar delivers tones that aren't obtainable in a stock Martin guitar.
The High Altitude Swiss Spruce top sounds fuller, richer and creates amazing overtones that are absolutely unique to its species. This amazing compliment to the sparkling Cocobolo back and sides makes the Martin Custom Shop D-14 Cocobolo model an amazingly unique instrument.
Strummers will immediately notice a booming bass that is tighter and more concise than those of rosewood guitars. The bass is more focused and in control. The mid range is vibrant and extremely relevant. This guitar has a very balanced response with mids that are very present. The treble response is clean, crisp and full. Open chords ring full, true and powerfully. The Swiss Spruce top allows for a large amount of headroom and access to exquisite overtones.
Players who focus on picking leads or fingerstyle will first notice this instruments quick response to touch and amazing output at low levels of playing attack. All sonic features of the bass, mids and trebles are easily accessed without playing heavily. The balance is noteworthy because it is a standout feature of this Martin Custom Shop D-14 Cocobolo.
We have chosen the finest appointments to increase the quality of tone on this Custom Shop instrument. It has been designed with Sitka/Scalloped 5/16" bracing and a Dovetail Neck Joint.
