    Default Martin J-41 Special my new baby

    I had the chance to get my hand on a mint Martin J-41 Special jumbo guitar recently. I am really happy by the way it sounds the tone is rich and well balanced, no boomy bass and nice midrange definition. The guitar is gorgeous and very easy to play.

    Here is a little presentation of this beauty, The guitar is tuned in DADACD

    Guitars:
    1978 Fender Telecaster Thinline Custom USA, New Nash TL-72 Thinline Telecaster, 1965 Harmony Meteor, H71, 1986 Fender Telecaster Esquire MIJ, New Martin J-41 Special, 1933 National Duolian, 1941, New Eastwood Mandocaster 12 strings

    Amps:
    Tweed Vibrolux Custom Denis Manlay, 1976 Fender Deluxe Reverb Silverface

    I love that Martin sound, and the jumbo size is a fun shape. Sounds beautiful in your hands.

    Thanks for the nice comment, The guitar is in fact quite comfortable it's not a big jumbo and the V profile neck is really nice to play. I guess in few years the sound will evolve very nicely and open up even more (that's what happen to my Martin D1 previously)

    In addition, you have inspired me to play with the DADACD tuning on my acoustic.
