From CF Martin:

With back and sides in premium solid East Indian rosewood and a Sitka spruce top, this instrument is enhanced with vintage appointments found on many Martin pre-war classic guitars. Massive bass response balanced with articulate highs makes the D-42 a fine choice for the discerning player.
