Martin, C.F.: D-45 CUSTOM

(Item ID: D-45 CUSTOM    Serial#: 1698226)

Martin, C.F. D-45 CUSTOM Custom Shop D-45 with Madagascar Rosewood and Adirondack Spruce

The Martin D-45 has long been the pinnacle of Martin’s standard production line, combining the deep and rich tonal characteristics of the -D28 with spectacular appointments. A guitar with a rich history, the D-45 was originally built for Gene Autry in 1933 and has been a favorite of high profile musicians ever since, including Steven Stills and Neil Young to name only a few.

Aesthetically this Custom D-45 is breathtaking. One can’t help but admire the attention to detail and stunning finish work that went into the creation of this instrument. The Abalone rosette and the Abalone purfling against white ivoroid binding creates a very pleasing contrast. And, as one might expect, playing this Custom Martin D-45 also provides a very satisfying experience, as single notes and chords alike seem to growl and boom. Played with a flatpick or fingerstyle the entire guitar responds and vibrates even with a light attack, making expression for the lucky player effortless. With Madagascar rosewood for the back and sides and Adirondack spruce for the top, this Custom D-45 stands out even among its peers, as these premium woods impart their own unique blend of depth and shimmer to the overall tone of this very fine instrument.
