A superior instrument constructed in the finest Martin tradition by our skilled craftsmen. Intricate details and appointments similar to the first D-45 introduced in 1937. Beautiful mother-of-pearl inlay on all borders, sound hole rosette and bridge pins makes this Dreadnought an outstanding and unique example of design and craftsmanship. Gold-plated Grover tuning machines, white binding, C.F. Martin mother-of-pearl headstock inlay, and large pearl fingerboard position marks accentuate the neck. Select rosewood and spruce give the D-45 the superior tone that the professional expects. Easy fingering is assured by the thin hand-shaped mahogany neck and oval ebony fingerboard. Available once again in limited production on a special order basis.
