How much does the Martin D-41 cost?
As of Mon, September 25th, 2023, the Martin D41 costs $5,199.00 on Sweetwater. This is considered a very expensive, high-quality acoustic guitar with select tonewood and all the trimmings. Everything is the best of the best.
The Martin D series (also called the Standard series) houses some of the most popular acoustic guitars ever built, including the one that Andy Griffith used to play on his front porch - a 1956 Martin D-18. Martin has continued to build on this series, which has led us all the way the D-40s.

While Amazon will occasionally have some used entries, it's pretty rare for a guitar in this price range.
Price Alert Sign Up (lowest price among vendors)
This section lets you sign up for a price alert. The D-41 isn't likely to drop much, and it only applies to new models, though you could luck out with a b-stock entry. Note that this table does not track Amazon price changes.
Reverb is, by far, your best bet for snagging a used deal. And for the Martin D-41, discounts tend to be very steep. When we looked, $1000 to $1500 discounts were not unusual.
Here's a screengrab of some price points:
For context, the D-41 was retailing for roughly $5400 new at this time, which (again) could have changed by the time you're seeing this.
But it's always worth it to check Reverb if you don't mind buying used.
It probably won't be as good as Reverb, and depends on locality, but Facebook classifieds will also have some of these.
The Martin D series is one of the best in the world, so they're worth the money if you truly want to invest in your instrument.
Keep in mind, the D-41 does not have any kind of electronics built in, so you'll need to use a mic or soundhole pickup if you want to amplify or record. Though for a guitar this nice, we'd prefer to avoid anything that breaks up the body.
