Description
Crystal clear highs come from a solid Sitka Spruce top while a body made of solid East Indian Rosewood projects loudly with a dark warmth, the traditional Martin bracing pattern generating fantastic tone. Equipped with gold Gotoh tuners with butterbean knobs. Features rich solid rosewood sides and 2-piece back. The finish is gloss nitrocellulose. The abalone and pearl work is absolutely gorgeous. The tuners are gold plated. Abalone hexagon inlays are used as position markers on the bound ebony fingerboard with more than 900 individual pieces of abalone into the bindings and inlays of the top, sides, back, and rosette. The Martin's Dovetail Neck Joint insures optimum intonation and stability. The D-45 Dreadnought guitar includes a deluxe Martin hardshell case.
