All original, excellent condition except for one crunch in the top at the edge of lower bout, treble side. The Brazilian rosewood is quartersawn and beautiful, there's much finish crazing, the tone is strong, punchy and full. 1945 is a very interesting year for Martin, just after they stopped scalloping the braces, and replaced them with very light "tapered" braces, which got heavier each year from '46 on. '45 was also the last year in which Adirondack spruce was Martin's primary top wood. A nice touch is the all wood bindings and purflings and the ebony truss rod.

Our "Cash price" policy: unfortunately, the credit card companies support "swiped" charges in which the card is physically run through the card reader. Phone-in charges are charged at a much higher rate (to the seller) which can take quite a big chunk out of a high-dollar sale. Thus, for those call-in sales, let's discuss the issue at the time; hopefully, we can figure some way to deal with it.
