You are looking at a Martin D-45 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar, serial number 1737717. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

A combination of excellence and beauty, together with an extremely limited production, has given the Martin D-45 acoustic guitar a position unique in the history of American-made guitars. This prestigious guitar has become the most sought after and the highest valued steel-string acoustic guitar in the world.

The dreadnought body of the D-45 is crafted from a classic pairing of a Sitka spruce soundboard and East Indian rosewood back and sides. These solid tonewoods represent the optimum selection for tonal quality and aesthetics. The D-45 boasts Style 45 appointments, which is  the most ornate of all the Martin Standard Series acoustics. Each piece of abalone is hand filed, mitered and fitted into the inlay on the top, sides, back and rosette while the body, neck and headstock are all bound in white boltaron. A traditional Style 45 C. F. Martin select abalone pearl block letter inlay adorns the headplate, while Style 45 large hexagon inlays designate the fingerboard positions. Gold-plated enclosed tuning machines are standard on this elegant model. D-45 top “X” bracing is hand scalloped to maximize the vibration of the soundboard. The low profile neck of the D-45 features a solid ebony fingerboard and is meticulously fitted to the body using a traditional dovetail neck joint. This guitar comes strung and set up with genuine Martin medium gauge strings and comes complete with a 640 molded hardshell case.
