The Martin J-40 utilises a unique Jumbo / Grand Performance body shape that ideally suits players that want the big, bold volume of a dreadnought, but a more performance-focused, tight-waisted body that offers superior comfort for long playing sessions.
Solid East Indian Rosewood back and sides combine with a Sitka Spruce top, one of CF Martin's favoured tonewood combos, offer plenty of spring and sustain with rich harmonic depth for both fingerpicking and strummed styles with a scalloped bracing for added projection and volume.
Other exquisite design features include an abalone pearl rosette, bound ebony fingerboard, abalone hexagon position markers, a bound headstock with Style 45 'C.F. Martin' abalone pearl letters, and gold enclosed tuning machines.
