The D42 draws its inspiration from the pre-war period with vintage features such as forward-shifted scalloped bracing, traditional Style 45 snowflake fingerboard inlays, grained ivoroid bindings, and gold tuning gears with 'butterbean' knobs. Other features for the 14-Fret Dreadnought include East Indian Rosewood top, back, and sides, polished gloss finish, a hand-fit dovetail neck attachment, and comes with a FREE case.
