The J-40 is Martinís take on a jumbo, featuring a solid Sitka top and solid Indian Rosewood back and sides. With a lower bout measuring 16 inches the body has a pinched waist when compared to a dreadnought, which makes it more comfortable to play than (for example) a Gibson J200 but doesnít compromise on tone. A great strummerís guitar!!
Classic styling with a tight-waisted jumbo body shape, the J-40 has solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, Sitka spruce top, polished gloss finish and a hand-fit dovetail neck joint. It produces a tone that is beautifully balanced with powerful response and volume, enhancing the art of the singer-songwriter.
