The Martin D-45 is one of the most recognizable guitars in the world, yet it is fairly rare to see one - many players aspire to them, but never get one.
Based on the classic Martin Dreadnought platform, the Martin D-45 is the top of the line for Martin's regular production model dreadnoughts. There are some higher end, custom order models, like the Martin D-100, but those are very rarely seen. The D-45 uses top graded Indian Rosewood for the back, sides and headplate, Sitka spruce top, mahogany neck and ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. On top of that, there's abalone purfling around the top and sides, abalone hexagonal position markers, and the C F Martin headstock logo is abalone inlay.
This guitar plays well, has a nice weight, and has the classic Martin sound - and the legendary look of the Martin D-45. It has one small dent in the top, at the edge just to the bass side of the tailblock.
The original molded hardshell case is included.
