Description

While visiting the Gene Autry Museum, Chris Martin personally examined the original 1933, 1st ever made D-45, custom ordered from Martin by Gene Autry and seen often on the silver screen. In 1994 this led to the first ever Martin Signature Edition of a living performer AND the most accurate reissue of a vintage (Brazilian) Martin the company had ever produced. This is #17 of 66: Only 66 of these Stunning Brazilian Beauties were made. Gene Autry’s name in script spelled out down the fingerboard in large Mother-of-Pearl letters Specs: Dreadnaught 12- Fret, Solid Sitka Spruce Top, Solid Beautiful Brazilian Rosewood Back & Sides, Solid Mahogany ”V” shaped Neck. Ebony Bridge & Fingerboard. Fossilized Ivory: Nut @ 1 7/8, long saddle& bridge pins. Top bracing is of 5/16” Sitka spruce, scalloped and forward shifted. The headstock shape is square slotted, square taper, Brazilian overlay / Torch Inlay and Martin Decal on the back side. The tuning gears are Waverly Nickel with Butterbean knobs. 45 Style Multi-Color Abalone, Mother of Pearl Inlay & Snowflakes all around. The case is a Martin 540 Geib covered in real leather. This is among the most Stunningly Beautiful, Ornately Inlayed Limited Brazilian Rosewood D-45’s Ever produce by Martin. This instrument is AS NEW and is viewed in an environmentally controlled display case. A Superb Addition to Any Collection. Due to the CITIES & Lacey Acts I will not export a Brazilian Rosewood guitar.* For those of you not of geriatric age Gene Autry was one of America’s 1st Superstars, a singer-songwritter (Rudolph the Red Nosed Raindeer, Here Comes Santa Claus & Here Comes Peter Cottentail) but also in the adult media; live radio, records, concerts –the first to fill Madison Square Gardens, movies as a Singing Cowboy playing his D-45 on horseback, early TV and then later owning the California Angels American League Baseball team.
