2012 Martin D45 Custom Shop Guitar
(Serial No. 1598418) Mint unplayed condition. The D-45 holds the distinction of being the most costly and lavishly trimmed guitar in the standard Martin line. More than 900 individual pieces of abalone pearl inlay are hand filed, mitered and fitted into the bindings of the top, sides, back and rosette. Large "C.F. Martin" letter inlays, also of colorful abalone, adorn the headstock. Abalone hexagon inlays are used as position markers on the bound ebony fingerboard. Martin uses their best woods for the D45. Has a tight straight-grained Sitka spruce top, highly figured Madagascar rosewood back and sides and ebony fingerboard and bridge. The tuners are gold plated Waverlys. The D-45 truly represents the culmination of the guitar making art. Its a spectacular instrument in both sound and appearance. Nice low action - plays like silk - with that famous Martin sound. Fitted with a K&K bridge plate pickup. You deserve to own a pearl-trimmed Martin at least once in your life!
